From the day I first installed IE10 Preview version, IE 10 has been nothing but problems. All throughout the time I was using the preview version, I would see multiple times a day a message stating: "You are not connected to a network." I did not find out what was causing this, even after posting a message in the Microsoft Community forums. Once the official release of IE10 came out, the issue of 'not connected to a network' seemed to go away.
In the past week, I have seen this message come back a couple of times. Now a new issue has developed with IE10. It is constantly crashing for no apparent reason. If I have a couple of tabs open and then close the lid on my laptop and come back to it a few hours later (or the next day), as soon as I login I see a message that Internet Explorer has stopped working. In some cases, simply opening a new tab causes IE to stop working and it closes and reopens all the tabs.
Just prior to coming here and posting this message, I had logged into my school website and was sending a message to someone. The instant I hit submit, IE decided that was the perfect time for it to crash, and it displayed a message stating "Internet Explorer has stopped working." I should have known beforehand that this was going to happen and I should have copied my message to the clipboard so I could just do a paste and not have to type it again.
I've never had a problem with IE until version 10. I don't suppose that since it was originally intended for Windows 8 and it just so happens that Microsoft made it compatible for Windows 7, would have anything to do with the issues I am experiencing? I don't believe a virus or anything else is the cause of this. Something just isn't working right.
