Maybe something better than AOL.
Have him start here http://www.weather.gov/
and in the left column input the city and state. Once he has that, make a bookmark. Just click the bookmark (I actually have mine on the toolbar so it is an easy click) and you have 7 days of weather for your area.
I also have this bookmarked  http://www.wpc.ncep.noaa.gov/national_forecast/natfcst.php
which shows a 3 day National Weather forecast. That's handy if you are traveling outside your immediate area.

I was so hoping that it could be fixed.  Guess it is hopeless. :-\

Thinking out loud ... when I see recover webpage issues in IE11, it is often caused by a bad add-on/extension.

I'd suggest try running IE11 in safe mode, this will turn off any program add-ons and some extensions not required for the basic running of the browser.  If your crashes are resolved then you know it is an add-on, browser helper, or active x that is causing the issue, and can troubleshoot further.




Start > Search > type iexplore -extoff (note the space), then 'enter'

or ...

Windows 7 specific:

Click Start > All Programs > Accessories > Command prompt  (or Keypress Windows Key + R and type cmd)

Once the 'Command Prompt' window is open, type cd\ to get a blank C: prompt.  Type in C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe -extoff and press ENTER
