    I just tried for the fourth time in a week to access tagged.com but it causes my IE to crash....it has happened on a couple of other sites too.
    It is rarely a problem as it does not affect any of the sites i visit most but why just a few....i want a tagged account tho so its annoying...any ideas?

    Which version of IE? 6, 7 or 8? Also, are you using Windows XP, Vista or 7?

    If IE keeps on crashing with websites you want to access, try Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.

    Internet EXPLODER 8 returns "Sorry, we can't find http://www.tagged.com"

    No problem accessing tagged.com using FireFox, Google Chrome or even with Safari.

    Sounds to me like they fucked up the DNS settings. It is always something with EXPLODER so I seldom use it. Dump the piece of .. .. .!

    So, what's the dif between tagged.com and say, Facebook?

    Simply put; Internet Explorer is crashing because you are using Internet Explorer.

    Use Mozilla's Firefox. Much more stable & secure!

    Don't know exactly- but what vers. of IE is installed ?
    Can check from an Open page > Help > About (+ updates ??)
    If you are running WinXp, suggest using IE vers.7,
    as I had too many similar problems as yours running IE6.
    ( IE7 pulled up tagged.com OK)
    Beyond that you may have to tweak those Security & Privacy
    settings over in Contol Panel> Internet Options.
    .. hope it helps

    Mitch, suggest you uninstall IE8 however Vista sees it as an upgrade so doesn't show in installed program lists. You need to undo the upgrade. I reverted to IE7 but always use Firefox in preference.

    go to Control Panel, Programs &
    Features, then click on "View installed updates", you will find IE8 there &
    you can now select 'Uninstall'.
    After a restart, your Vista will have reverted to IE7.

    What a strange statement. I only use internet explorer if I have firefox open with several tabs and need to reference something quickly I'll open IE to find what I need and then close it. I read several articles about IE8 and many included how to revert back since this is widely talked about I would assume there are issues with IE8.

    If your browser is only crashing on a few sites it is blocking the site because of spyware or a virus on the site. I just visited tagged.com and my browser blocked 15 tracking cookies (spyware) from that site. That's 15 different sites that are now watching every move you make on the internet. I have my security settings set from medium to high. If i visit a site and my browser crashes (which is very rare) i stay away from the site. Run a good program like Spybot (spyware) or Malwarebytes (malware). They are very good and free.

    I made the switch to firefox about 2 years ago. I only use IE for webcam chat on lpsg and referencing when I'm already using FF. I would probably guess spyware too as the reason for crashing.

    Have you tried to re-install it?

    My IE is crashing also. While going down my list of daily blogs it will all of sudden crash. A small window pops up and says INTERNET EXPLORE cannot open the INTERNET site http:// [see pic,] after closing the small window the main one changes and go to IE's Diagnose page[see pic.]. If you run the Diagnose page it comes back unable to find any problem and then sends you back to your original window, where it crashes again. LOL
    Oh and I too am running IE8 and vista, any ideas?

    VISTA is a known pain in the ass as is Internet Exploder.
