HELP DU keeps crashing & won't let me open articles
I'll be amazed if this posts. I can't open any posting, it's all in Blue text and the video section is blank. Is anyone having this problem? How do I fix it.

4. Methinks you got a virus.
I had that happen to me some years back. It was a nasty worm and I had to have a techie fix it.

6. First, close every browser window and application, one by one...
...and then shut down your computer and restart.

Pretty generic "help", but these steps cure more than 50% of computing problems, in my experience.

I'm really computer illiterate I don't know how to fix this (hubby does it all).

9. Clear all your cookies and browser cache before restarting
Go to My Computer > C: > Windows > Prefetch and empty all the files and clear the ZRecycle bin.

Go to Internet Explorer Security and set it so it has no capabilities whatsoever, nothing in the way of an optional capability.

Never use Internet Explorer again.

RESTART

Use Firefox as your browser.
