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

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.

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!

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.

i even troubleshooted it's performance.... but no luck

EDIT: before upgrading i ran the upgrade assistant, and it said inte(r) network connections isn't compatible with the OS... so i completely removed it...then installed win8

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.

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,

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...

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,

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.

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
 

A:Internet Explorer stopped working

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.

Recently discovered IE7 does not work. I am running Vista Ultimate w/ norton internet 2008. Message: Internet Explorer has stopped working " a problem has caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available" That's it. I tried restoring to previous dates, and the scheduled restores fail. I have tried w/out antivirus, no go.Anyone seen or know how to solve this problem. I don't know if there is a way to fix IE7 itself in Vista?I did go through some machinations a few weeks ago to install Norton 2008, but that was just to eventually reload the C++ distributables. I think it was working after that.

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

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.

I've been getting this error message whenever I try to delete a website or folder from my Favorites.
I can click close program and my homepage comes back up. Check online for a solution does nothing. I looked at the details and realized I was running IE 7.0.6001.1800 so I downloaded IE 8, but the problem persists. Right now the only way I can make it happen is by trying to delete something in my Favorites folder, but it has just come up randomly a few times. I googled "Internet Explorer has stopped working" and got lots of pages where other users are having the same problem, suggesting various fixes, but none has worked for me so far. Hope I didn't make a mistake by downloading IE8!! Please help.

I bet I've received this message 20 times or more today and yesterday. Of course, Windows is checking for a solution to the problem and soon it works again, but within a few minutes, it stops working again.

Should I uninstall IE 10 and go back to IE 9, or download a new IE 10, or what?

You all know a whole lot more than me and I won't do anything without asking you first. Thanks.

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

Either way, restoring your computer to a recent restore point might fix it.

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,

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.

Hello, I am having a little problem here and just trying to see if anyone can help.

Anytime I try to enter into this chatroom on a discussion forum I frequent I get that stupid message box that says "Internet Explorer has stopped working" it shows a litle progress bar under it and says "Windows is checking for a solution" but all it ever comes up with is another box that says "A propgram has caused this program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available."

I had no problem entering the chat room on my other computer a Dell Inspiron E1705 but that one is now dead and I am currently using a Dell XPSm1730 running Vista Home Premium. I tried deleting my browsing history and re-downloading/installing Java but it doesn't seem to do any good.

Just as an aside: I know the problem is with my computer and not the chat program. So if anyone could help that would be great.
