I am guessing it is IE filling up on memory. Old versions (on Vista) of IE freak out if javascript/web files use a lot of computer memory, and if you are running a lot of other programs at the same time. Between ads, the chat bar and an over use of social plugins, there is 50+ javascript/flash files loaded for each page (horrible for global variables) and they all are sucking memory trying to make their own thing work.

You could try getting rid of the Nasioc chat bar on the bottom, or get the newer versions of Firefox, Chrome or Opera. Those newer versions have better javascript engines. Flash ads will also take up memory and Firefox and Chrome have the wonderful AdBlock to stop those Flash Ad nasties.

I am kind of surprised it only happens on this site though. Does it happen when you have any other programs open?
