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.)

A:Windows 7: Internet explorer has stopped working

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.

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 Experts,

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.

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.

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 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?

Hi, i am hoping someone can offer me some advice.

I have a new laptop with windows 7 installed and Internet Explorer 9 being used.

I have checked various options thats other have posted but they do not appear to be resolving the problem.

Typical example f the problem....

I get an email with a link, click and the link opens within browser. If the link then has a document witin it to open (I think they are PDF'S) the browser comes up with the following message:

A problem caused prog to stop working - it then asks you to close the page.

I have tried resetting default settings i have tried No add ons and the problem still persists.

Any guidance would be much appreciated.

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

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?

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.

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.

I have a similar problem with EI 11 on my PC with W8.1, which is fully updated. It happens whenever I try to "Save as" a download or to print a web page.
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 have since turned off IE11 via the Programs and Features in the Control Panel, restarted .....and then turned it on again, and again restarted, but it still stops working when Save or Print is selected.

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

i upgraded from windows 7 ultimate to windows 8 pro keeping my windows settings,personal files and apps as it is..the upgrading went smooth... but whenever i open IE10 it stops working and says "we're unable to return to..."
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 have looked everywhere for an answer to this problem, and so far, nothing has helped. My computer has Windows Vista and I recently updated to Internet Explorer 8. When I to to certain websites, I get the message:

"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.

This doesn't happen on every website, but only on some. They are websites that I have used regularly before, such as www.ksdk.com (local news) and www.coldwatercreek.com (a clothing site). I am at a loss and don't know what else to try. I downloaded the browser for Firefox and I am able to use them through there, but it is a hassle to have to go back and forth, and often, there is something that I want to see on the sites and Firefox wants to ad new programs, but they won't load. PLEASE HELP!!

Thank you,

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).

I have a Dell 530 Inspiron running Windows Vista.  My Internet Explorer 9 has stopped running.  When I try to start it it gives me the message that IE has stopped working and Windows is searching for a solution, Windows is closing the program and will notify me if a solution is available.    
I tried right clicking Computer, click Properties, Advanced System Settings, Performance Settings, Data Execution Performance tab, in the box under "Turned on DEP for all programs and services.." I added Internet Explorer.  This did not fix it.
I am able to start IE in Safe Mode.  While in there I went to Internet Options, Advanced Options tab and unchecked "Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks".  I rebooted in regular mode.  Tried it again but it did not help.  I got the same message.
I tried to uninstall IE 9 but got a message "An error has occured.  Not all of the updates were successfully uninstalled".  I rebooted in safe mode.  Started IE it was still running IE9.  While in Safe Mode I tried uninstalling IE but got the same message "Not all of the updates were successfully uninstalled".
When I look in Control Panel, Problem Reports and Solutions, View Problem History I see the error message that is being produced whenever I start IE.   It is pasted below.

A:Internet Explorer 9 has stopped working

One quick thing you could try, open control panel and go to internet options.  Click advanced advanced tab, then click "Restore advanced settings" and click the "Reset" button.  The Reset will disable all addons, usually what I've found to cause IE to crash out of the blue.

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

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?

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!

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

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.

I have run malwarebytes and several other antivirus programs and not one thing has appeared in the results.

This is the message I get when it says it has stopped working and ask for more details:
