    Yeah, I have to use IE to access a certain site, it sucks but....
    However it seems to freeze up with 10.4.3. I'm using a Rev D 15" powerbook with 1 gig of ram. Anyone else seem to have this problem?

    Assuming you're having the same problem everybody else is, it's not 10.4.3, it's actually because MS changed MSN.com and now it crashes IE. To fix it you need to change the IE homepage to something other than msn.com. The easiest way to do this is probably to find an html file on your hard drive and open it with IE. That way IE won't start up on msn.com and you can get to preferences to change the homepage. You can also just click stop really quickly before IE has a chance to load msn.com.

    Seems pretty stupid that MS would change msn.com so it crashes IE for Mac, but still continue to make IE default to msn.com when you download it.
