I too am considering this upgrade to SSD. This may seem trivial but try control panel, programs and features, windows features and untick internet explorer then reboot. Upon reboot go and retick the box to reinstall that feature. This has worked for me in the past when ie stopped functioning. Good Luck. Please let us know the results.
Any ideas to stabilize this now? How odd.
I apologize ahead of time, as I am not super techy.

I like to play around with my computer in a way that's not exactly easy on hard drives.
Any advice/experience that might be relevant?
