Q: Windows Explorer Stopped Working, Internet Explorer Stopped Working, what DOES work?

Hey, Fellas, I'm back.
Lately when I've tried looking at different folders and files on my hard drives I keep getting "Windows Explorer has stopped working and will restart." It's driving me nuts, I can barely do anything.
Also, same thing with Internet Explorer...I'm getting real sick of Vista's shoddiness..

Preferred Solution: Windows Explorer Stopped Working, Internet Explorer Stopped Working, what DOES work?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello Experts,
I thought I knew what I was doing, but I can't figure out why IE keeps crashing. It will run for a while, then without warning, crashbox.
Attached is the minitoolbox scan and the speccy link. By the way, I have already deleted all of the bluestacks files as instructed by the bluestacks web site.http://speccy.piriform.com/results/VYS612jtFxbIyZVcqiCVKTE
 
Please let me know if you need anything else.
 
Thanks,

Working on my mother's computer as a favor.  When launching Internet Explorer (version 11), it immediately crashes, giving "Internet Explorer has stopped working", without any cause or error notices.  I have made sure that there are no addons running, and reset the program/security settings.
 
I found that I can launch IE by running it as administrator, so I have limited ability to browse; naturally I don't want to run it as an admin all the time.
 
I ran an sfc /scannow and its log indicated that it could not restore C:\windows\SysWOW64\iesysprep.dll and that the archived version was also corrupt.  I am not certain whether this is the cause of the crashes, or a completely unrelated issue, but I see that you folks were able to help out someone with a problem similar to this part recently.
 
Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide!

There should be an option in the start menu to run Internet Explorer with Add-Ons disabled. Have you tried this? I would aslo recommend switching browsers if possible, try Firefox or Chrome.

The reason I ask about this is that maybe some setting could be changed to make Internet Explorer work properly and not "stop working"...
 
A family member with Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 10 suddenly is unable to open IE either through the shortcut or directly on the iexplore.exe file; but on the other hand, no trouble occurs if IE is right-clicked and Run As Administrator.  So IE on the machine DOES work, but only if Run As Administrator.
 
I tried to help by looking in the Internet Explorer Properties  - Security tab on another machine to compare, but everything (except an extra user type, S-1-15-2-1,  on Win7 not shown on Win Vista) appears to be the same. 
 
The windows Vista machine used for comparison has IE 9.  The Windows 7 machine on which "IE stopped working" happens is 64bit windows and there is installation of IE 10 in both the Program Files path AND the Program Files (x86) path.
 
The exact "error" message when IE stops is :
 

 
Internet Explorer has stopped working.
A problem caused the program to stop working correctly.  Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.
 

 
Hopefully someone knows about some setting or option that could be changed or checked so that the user or anyone else not need to Run As Administrator but may just double click the desktop icon as normal to run IE.

A:Internet Explorer 10 in Windows 7 stopped working

Go to Programs and Features > Left side, click View Installed Updates > scroll down to find Windows Internet Explorer 10 >
Right click at it > click Uninstall.
System will revert back to IE 9 automatically after IE 10 is uninstalled. Now Reboot the computer -
 
You don't need to re-install IE9, as it will be there.

Hello,
I have an HP running Windows Vista. Initially things were working just fine, but recently I have lost the ability to connect to the internet. I try to launch IE, but get the same error message. I've tried the reset button in Control Panel>Advanced Settings but it did not solve the problem.
I am not running OmniPage either, another problem I read about on other blogs.
Does anyone have some suggestions for things I might try to get IE to work again?

Hi,

I turned my PC on the other day after using it the day before without issue. I attempted to open internet explorer and the error message popped up saying it had stopped working. I clicked try to find a solution online and after awhile it closed the browser. I haven't been able to open it since.

I have turned off gpu hardware acceleration.

I have reset the browser.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled it via windows updates.

It's driving me crazy because I cannot access the Internet on my PC at all!

I ended up getting a friend to download the Firefox browser assuming that would be a workaround but I've just launched that browser to the same message. Firefox has stopped working.

So far I have reset it, opened it as administrator and turned off smart screen filter - to no effect.
Should I try to disable EI from the Uninstall Programs - Turn Windows on or off?

I suggest that you reinstall Firefox and make sure that it is up to date. As for Internet Explorer - reinstall that as well.
If that doesn't work for IE or Firefox, try getting your hands on 'Tune-Up Utilities 2009': Run the 1-Click Maintenance - it should fix a bunch of problems within your operating system (me personally, I install Tune-Up Utilities literally after installing Windows and any Security Software).

A:Internet explorer has stopped working

First, be sure to back up anything on this computer that you want to keep (videos, music, pictures, documents, etc.).

Next, you're going to need to do one of three things:

1) Get professional help. To do this, either follow these instructions and post a new thread in the virus/trojan/spyware help forum (be patient as the analysts are very busy) or take your computer to a local computer technician,

2) reinstall your OS (be sure you have your driver disk (or, if you don't, that you download the appropriate drivers for your hardware) and clean the hard drive completely with a program like dban before you do a fresh install of your OS), or

3) try to fight the infection on your own via online scanners and/or by downloading and using free virus scanners (don't have more than one antivirus program running at any one time; also note that this option is not recommended and that, if you want to fight the infection, you really should have a professional do it in order to insure that your computer is completely clean).

Also, once you get your computer cleaned, I suggest getting an antivirus program with on-access scanning capabilities and a firewall.

A:internet explorer has stopped working

Did you keep your antivirus or other security suite package from before the upgrade?

You might think about uninstalling it if you did, to see if it has a positive effect.

It's the most likely cause, assuming the machine connects to the net well otherwise, with other programs.

Other than that, make sure there is no proxy being set in I.E.'s properties.

If you have Java installed on the machine, update it to latest.

Do you remember any changes you might have made on your system that might be related? Install any software lately, maybe?

Hi guys
For a while we have an issue with an error message popping up saying "Internet Explorer has stopped working". This is happening only when using Outlook.
Apparently Outlook is trying to lunch an IE process and this only can run if the user has local admin rights. Unfortunatelly in our environment this is not possible. If we disable IE the error message is not popping up anymore.

We are using IE11 and Win10.  I had this issue raised with the Office department and they advised I should raise it here.
Any ideas?
Many thanks

I constantly get the window saying Windows Explorer has stopped working. The computer freezes for a very long time and then sometimes it resumes. Most of the time I have to turn it off and on with the reset button. Is there a fix that does not require a computer geek. I'm running Vista home. I have been searching for hours and trying different suggestions that do not work.

A:Internet Explorer has stopped working

Hi -

There is no magic fix, but maybe some relief can be found. Run the following, please:

Vista System Health report in HTML format
START | type perfmon /report | save in default HTML format

msinfo32 -
START | msinfo32 | save in default NFO format

Zip these 2 up and attach to your next post.

Regards. . .

Hi,
I turned my PC on the other day after using it the day before without issue. I attempted to open internet explorer and the error message popped up saying it had stopped working. I clicked try to find a solution online and after awhile it closed the browser. I haven't been able to open it since.
I have turned off gpu hardware acceleration.
I have reset the browser.
I have uninstalled and reinstalled it via windows updates.
It's driving me crazy because I cannot access the Internet in my PC at all!
I ended up getting a friend to download the Firefox browser assuming that would be a workaround but I've just launched that browser to the same message. Firefox has stopped working.
I have run malwarebytes and several other antivirus programs and not one thing has appeared in the results.
Can anybody help me??? I had to do this on my phone.
I'm running windows 7.
Thanks

Every hour or two I get a message "Internet Explorer has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working. The program will be closed down". Except that it does not close down, just locks up.

It seems to happen when I close down tabs. Sometimes IE can recover from this if I end task it. But sometimes I have to reboot the computer.

This is the desktop version of IE. No extra Add Ons except Norton items and Flash.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Hello Vince,

You might see if completely resetting IE10 may help.

I am writing regarding my husbands computer which runs Internet Explorer as his search engine, and it keeps stopping.  Obviously he can't go online because of it and I've been trying to figure out a way to fix it.  The search for solutions box
never comes up with any solutions!!  This is very frustrating to say the least.  It all started on October 25th I believe, until then everything worked properly.  I've done a complete computer scan, with no problems showing.  If I restore
his system to Oct. 24th, it works for about 10 minutes, then stops working again.   I am writing from my computer searching for help.  Hope you can give me some suggestions or reasons why this is happening.
Thanks.....

Good morning,

I have a Mac Book Pro that's been partitioned - the other side is Windows Vista Business. My job requires me to use Internet Explorer extensively and unfortunately it has stopped working. It will look like it's working (the hourglass) for a few seconds, then stops. I have tried launching it from the desktop, from the start menu to no avail.

I have tried running Problems and Reports - I see what the conflictions are - but Problems and Reports stops working. I end up with a program not responding each time. But the problems that show up are: Internet Explorer icon - recommended updated; Internet Explorer icon - problem caused by Windows; Problem caused by Apple Destop Null Driver; Windows Compatability Problem.

I also tried - start, accessories, system tools, i e (no add ons) - still won't start.

I would very much appreciate your assistance in solving this.

Thanks,

Liz

Is the problem just with Internet Explorer, or does another browser have issues as well? Can you update that version of Internet Explorer? Or, if it has been updated, can you remove the update and return to the last version for a test?

If you check the Task Manager > Processes tab when this issue is occurring, is anything mis-behaving with regard to excess processor usage?

Have you tried a System Restore?

Also the business edition has a full drive backup and restore ability -- have you ever used that?

You can also try a "clean boot" of the Windows OS >>

Run msconfig and select the "Services" tab. Check "Hide Microsoft Services" and then disable the rest. Also uncheck "load startup items" on the general page.
Now restart and test the issue at hand

If no problems, run msconfig and recheck half the disabled items on the Services tab. Test again. If the problem recurs, UNcheck half the items you just checked to narrow down the culprit.

If the problem didn't occur, check the other half, so all the Services are enabled -- proceed to do this on the startup tab as well.

Get the idea? You want to isolate the problem to a specific startup if possible.

Note: if you already have items unchecked under msconfig > startups and are in “selective” startup mode – you should note what these are before beginning. They will need to be de-selected again.

My husband purchased a new lap top a couple weeks ago and is already getting errors with Vista. I have to use my old reliable to look up the problem solution. I have seen that this is a common error but I haven't found a really good solution. The error is a windows error that states

internet explorer has stopped working
A problem caused by the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available..

This happens as soon as the program is opened.

How irritating. How could you check for notification if you can't use the internet?

My husband states that he can get around the error by right clicking on IE and open it as an administer. Anyway to fix this?

Thank you!

Hiya,

Welcome to the wonderful world of Vista..................!

As a suggestion, you could just do away with IE 7 and download and install a different browser, ie, Firefox or even Opera.

just a thought,

Hi,

I am trying to help my parents via telephone. They are not real good with the computer and really bad when there is a problem so please bare with me through this.

My mom called tonight to say that their HP computer is having problems that started yesterday. When she clicks on IE8 she gets a message that says "Internet Explorer has stopped working". She then gets an option to have it look for a solution online and when she picks that it all goes away. She can access her email and get updates in other programs.

I do not live close to them so driving over there is not an option. I can download items and mail USB drives to them or CD's if needed.

Thank you.

Hi, my internet explorer stopped working. I had IE 7 beta 2 installed and I decided to uninstall it , after which it stopped displaying web pages.
Please help
 

A:Internet Explorer Stopped Working

There have been many that have had difficulty with IE7

are you wishing to get it fixed or to remove it?

I did not like it and tried removing it with it ending up a mess

after trying to remove it in add/remove i ended up with a mixture of IE6 and IE7 withboth nothing working.

I then did system restore to a day or 2 before i installed IE7 and that did not do any good

then i did a system restore to the day i installed IE7 and that did the trick

if nobody else comes up with another solution you can try what i did if you want to remove it but i would wait a bit yet to see if there were any other patches or solutions

I do not use IE, but my wife does...so I don't know how this happened, but now - whenever we try to open IE - nothing loads and it just says "Internet Explorer has Stopped Working" etc etc - a problem occurred and needs to close.

I also get the same issue when I try to run AVG antivirus, so that stinks too.

I had IE8, reverted to 7 (problem still existed) reinstalled 8 (and again) and now am back on 7. Running windows Vista. Tried installing a couple programs to fix it, but it is hit or miss with the programs as to what will cause the error again and shut down whatever I am trying to install/run. I installed registry mechanic and ran that and got no help.

Have no clue what to do now. Any help?

A:Internet Explorer has Stopped Working

I would first suggest you upgrade to Internet Explorer 8 again.
If you find that your IE8 continues to stop working frequently in Windows, here are some trouble-shooting steps you may try:
1. Run your anti-virus and an anti-spyware, to check for malware infections. Microsoft Security Essentials is a good freeware AV from Microsoft.
2. Clear Cache. Or else run your Junk Cleaner or CCleaner. In IE 7 or 8, click Tools > Internet options > Security > Reset all Zones to Default level
3. If still you find your IE giving problems, close it and run IE (No Add-ons). This opens up the browser without loading any add-ons, toolbars or plug-ins.
4. Run sfc /sc?annow and at the end reboot if asked for. This will replace corrupted system files if any.
If you find it running OK, then the problem is most probably caused by an addon. In that case you have two options :
- Use the manage Add-ons tool, and disable each one after the other to find out which one is causing the problem.
- In Internet Options, go to Advanced Tab and click on Reset tab. Restart IE. This step deletes all temp files, disables any add-ons, plug-ins, toolbars and also resets all changed settings to default. Although this is a quick-fix, you will have to re-install the add-ons.

I hope this helps!

Cheers,
Bryn

Hi,
We just got a new computer with explorer 8 and after several weeks we get the message, "Internet Explorer is not working". Then, it closes window and tries to restart at prior webpage. The only thing different we did, that we can remember, is load DivX and also, we did get some shopper toolbar on the right which I uninstalled. Tried to disable plugins but not having any effect. Any ideas? Thanks for your help!

I installed Vista Ultimate x64 SP1 and everytime I ran IE7 then started navigating through pages it would crash. Not every page would cause the crash but the pages that did crashed it every time.

It was a fresh install. No addons, no virus scan installed, no programs installed. I tried it before installing the drivers Vista could not identify (video and sound) and I tried it after installing the drivers so there were no unknowns in Device Manager. Either way the same result. I clicked the reset button on the advanced tab but that didn't resolve the problem. I installed Flash but that didn't resolve it. I modified the IE security settings, I turned off Protected mode, I turned off pop up blocker, all of these things did not stop IE7 from crashing with that error.

I installed Vista Home Premium x64 SP1 and have not seen this problem once.

My PC is an AMD dual core x64 proc, ATI Radeon card, the board has an ATI chipset, the SB600. I have 4 gigs of RAM. I don't know if any of that makes a differnece.

Anyone else have this problem and were able to resolve it?
Anyone have ideas as to what's causing it or have any questions for me?

Thanks,
John
