Q: Internet Explorer tabs will get closed automatically when I open some websites.

Original Title:Should I have IE 9 64 bit & IE 9 32 bit installed on my HP Pavilion Entertainment PC?

Web sites are causing that tab to close. On one site everything works ok until I try to download a pdf. On other sites the tab will shut down after the site has been up for a while.The problem just started the last few weeks after working ok for about a year. I must have caused this problem but don't know what I did or what to do to fix it. When I went to the Java website that tab closed after I clicked on a button to have my version of java checked. I have both 32 & 64 bit IE installed on my HP Pavilion Entertainment PC, could this be causing a problem? Would having the right or current version of Java be an issue?  Help would be appreciated!!!
