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.)

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.

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.

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!

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?

Hello Everyone,

I am very new in this forum. I am a graphic designer and have gotten a new PC recently I did get it custom build and the specs you may probably view in my profile?.

Anyway I have been using Win 7 straight from XP and WoW so many problems.

Every once in a while the internet explorer stops working when i right click on a folder to rename or open a folder, it doesnt even make sense and i looked the description and it just gives me the APPCRASH.exe.

I have looked online all over search engines to fix this problem and did so many different things like uninstalling Nero or Divx, then trying to turn off some programs that may run in the background and the problem is still coming up at least once a day for sure.

It gets frustrating. I am getting mad because i spend around $2g to get this baby how i want it and win 7 is not letting me enjoy it. Im a big fan of WIN i hate macs...

A:Internet Explorer has stopped working

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).

Hello Bill,

You may have a bad IE8 add-on or setting causing this. See if resetting IE8 may help. Afterwards, you can enable your IE8 add-ons one at a time testing inbetween to help see which one may be responsible if it crashes right after enabling it.

Hope this helps,

This morning my Windows 7 Home Premium downloaded and installed 6 new updates. When it started up again I kept getting a message saying "Internet Explorer has stopped working, windows is searching for a solution" then it would restart explorer and this would go on non-stop. I booted into safe-mode and restored to a restore point from 3 days ago. This solved the problem. Have you heard of other problems with this latest Windows 7 update? I'm afraid to let it re-install again.

Hi all

I have a fairly new desktop PC I used my original windows 7 home edition as my operating system and updated to Internet Explorer 11.

Just lately I have been experiencing 'Internet Explorer has stopped working problems'. I went onto the Microsoft help site and followed a procedure which involved turning off all my start up programs with the exception of the Microsoft ones. When I tried to restart at the end of the procedure my PC froze.

It seems I have a problem more deep seated than the Explorer problem and could really do with some help.

Hoping for a reply soon.

Best Regards Ken.

Cheers.

I'm trying to start IE 8 and the error message Internet Explorer has stopped working appears followed by
A problem has caused the program to stop working correctly.
Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available.

Also, Firefox will not start. The message is Firefox can not find the server at xxxx no matter what address it tries to find.
I do not know if this is affecting the issues but, in Windows Defender, under "My Web Search Bar for Internet Explorer and Fire Fox" it is classified as "Not yet classifed"

Should I remove the My Web Search Bar in Safe Mode. It looks like there's many other unfriendlies on here also.
Thank you

Any suggestions short of a rebuild would be appreciated.

Hi All,
          Just bought a PC with windows 7 installed, booted up logged on to IE(11) after a few seconds got this message... Internet Explorer has stopped working... i have googled it and tried every fix i could find,  ran malwarebytes and a few other cleaners but found nothing.  mozilla runs perfect though. It seems a pretty common fault with all the requests on google for a fix.  Any help  will be much appreciated.

To the best of my knowledge, IE just stopped working with Vista. What is the best way to troubleshoot this. It does seem like Microsoft could pop up more meaningful error messages. Is there a way to just reload IE in Vista?

Hi Taylor, and welcome to Vista Forums.

This is usually caused by a bad add-on. This tutorial will show you how to test and fix this if it is the case. I would still reset IE7 though to rule out any other bad setting issues.

Internet Explorer - Reset

Hope this helps,
Shawn

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

Try starting Internet Explorer this way and see if it makes a difference.

Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)
