Internet Explorer suddenly closes

Started getting calls today for people whose Internet Explorer suddenly closed without error after launch. After a bit of troubleshooting, I was able ot determine that the Yahoo! Companion Toolbar is causing this issue. Solution -- uninstall Yahoo! Toolbar.

Just thought you should know, in case you having this issue. Of course, you likely aren't able to read this if you are having the problem...

So, uhm, yeah....
Get Firefox!

Heh. I was talking to my mom on the phone and she mentioned her "internet" was closing unexpectedly. I'm betting this is the case.

*fires off email directing to Add/Remove Programs and Firefox*

I'd be curious if this is the problem. Let me know, if you find out...

Firefox is what I use. I'd never use IE.

Unfortunately, I don't have that luxury. There are many internal applications here at work, including our Microsoft security patching mechanism, our Microsoft software deployment mechanism, and our anti-virus consoles, that use ActiveX controls and do browser detection to force IE to be used.

For everything else, it's Firefox.
