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.)

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.

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!

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?
Thank you,

Keep getting this error message (attached) and now and then when I go to open a new window, only an upper piece of a window manages to open, like a slit or corner of the upper bar.

To fix, went to:

control panel > network & internet > internet options > advanced... tick "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering" 1st selection
But now I still get the partial windows on opening them. What's the cause here?

I was wondering if anyone could help me?  I have been having a lot of issues with my computer and using the internet. I keep getting messages such as ‘windows explorer has stopped working ‘and ‘Host process for windows services stopped working’. I haven’t been able to stream videos (with the exception of youtube),  download certain programs and browsing sites is slow.  I remember my computer being fine until a window update but I don’t know if that’s a coincidence or not.  I have tired uninstalling windows explorer and system restore to no avail.

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.

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.

I have a Gateway NV78 laptop running Windows 7 and Explorer 8. Verizon is my IP. When I click the Explorer icon after going on line my home page starts to load but before it finishes I receive a message saying “Internet Explorer has stopped working” and I never get to my home page. I called Verizon support and they said it was an Explorer or Gateway problem. I called Microsoft and they said it was a Gateway problem. I got things working by doing a system restore to a week earlier. That worked for a day. The next day all attempts at a system recovery failed.

Windows updates also fail to complete and update when I get on line by doing what appears below..

I can get on line buy closing the “Internet Explorer has stopped working” drop down and than quickly hitting the tools / Internet Options/ option. What do I have to do to stop receiving the “Internet Explorer has stopped working” drop down on Internet sign on attempts?

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.



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.

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.

When I'm on a web page a form pops up saying "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." Then I click the close program. When I did that the tab that tells you the web page you are on would disappear for second or two and reappear. the computer would tell me with a arrow pointing at the tab, that it has been recovered. So this has started to do this a little more then at first. Could I just get a different version of E Internet Explorer install it , and uninstall the one I have. Would that fix the problem. Mary

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?

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!

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.
