Hey the problem with the Internet explorer is very common..So I would recommend u to use mozilla firefox instead of IE as it is more stable and FAST when compared to IE..but if u still want to use IE then remove IE from ur PC first n den reinstall it..that will definitely help u!!!!
Hey u also update your IE with latest version. Because may there is problem with your version which you using.

Doky, I was checking out your hubs to try and determine why your hubscore was so low and it seems you have copy pasted articles you have published elsewhere on the net. Hubpages will penalise you for that as its considered duplicate content. It might be a good idea to re-word your articles here. When your score raises you will get more traffic.
Here's some advice from and old Joe who has been fixing PCs for some 20 odd years now ...
You might have a virus or some malware - or you could just be low on RAM or virtual memory. Here's what to check - in order:
First off, follow thecomputerpeeps advice. If that doesn't completely fix the issue do the following:
If you have Internet Explorer 8 installed, uninstall it. Use Internet Explorer 7. I know someone else recommended Internet Explorer 6, which is very good, but some sites are beginning not to work properly with version 6, making version 7 a better option.
If you have Windows XP, make sure you have at least 1Gb of RAM. If you have any less, I recommend a RAM upgrade. And if you have Windows Vista or Windows 7 then I recommend at least 2Gb of RAM.
If the issue still occurs after making sure you have enough RAM, run a malware check. Malwarebytes has a free program on the internet that works really well. Google it, download it, install it, update it (make certain it's totally up-to-date) then perform a full scan. It will take a few hours, but it should make a tremendous difference.
And if you're looking for a new web browser I recommend Firefox or Chrome. Firefox is more robust and Chrome is much faster. Also, Firefox is great for people interested in SEO, as there are a lot of SEO plugins for Firefox. As for Chrome, it lacks some plugins, which can cause compatibility issues, but again, it's really, really fast.
I hope this helps.
Two other things to check.
1. Go to task manager on your task bar and open it, go to performance and make sure your CPU usage is not up too high. If it is check Processes. It will show you which program is hogging your CPU usage which can be the problem. If IE is using most of it, check for malware.
2. Check your hard drive space. If it is getting low, the memory will not use the swap file properly, so delete temp files and clean up your drive.

Just noticed that the facebook like button is not showing in Firefox, although it shows up fine in Chrome when I looked.

Is Google Chrome, or Firefox, better than Internet Explorer?I'm wondering if I'm going to run into problems with these. Has anyone compared these search engines? Which is the best one to use with Windows 7 ?

For anyone who upgraded to Windows 8.1, Internet Explorer 11 came with it and you may have noticed that you can enter links in your hubs through this browser.It still works in Firefox 25, but just a heads up!

Just curious what browser do you use?I have been using Internet Explorer and just recently have had problems with it. I did a virus scan, a spyware scan, and nothing seemed to work. I could only use IE in add ons...
