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!

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, 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.

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.

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.

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

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?

Thanks.

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 have been asked to take a look at a problem my friend is experiencing with their laptop, which is a fairly modern Toshiba running Windows 7.

The problem apparently lies only with Internet Explorer, which, when opened, presents a message stating that:

"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".

It is highly likely that this problem began only after automatic updates were installed.

I have researched this issue on the web and according to posts on the Microsoft Community forum it seems that one of the add-ons might be causing a conflict, and that in order to clear the problem I should simply have to open Internet Explorer, navigate to Tools/Options and delete the browsing history, clear the cache etc. etc.

When I open I.E and before I can access Tools/Options the same onscreen message appears and will only then let me close the program and not access anything in order to make the necessary changes.

Is there any way to overcome this hurdle, or might it be best for me to to de-install/re-install the browser? Also, is it possible that there might be associated files that are not deleted by default, which could then corrupt the fresh installation?

I should perhaps add that I have managed to install Firefox on the laptop in question, and Firefox accesses the internet just fine.

Any advice or assistance gratefully received.

Internet Explorer stopped working a few weeks ago on my home computer.  I can't give a ton of details because I don't use it, my wife does (I use Chrome).  When you try to open it, you get a spinning circle in the center of the screen for about 5 seconds, then that goes away.  That's it.  I've used CCleaner to clean all cache, temp files, etc for IE.    I've run virus scans, anti Malware scans, etc.  All come back clean.  
 
I'm running Win 7 64 bit.
 
Any ideas ?
 
Thanks,

Hello Micallen,
 
Have you installed the latest windows updates? If not, follow this link: http://www.update.microsoft.com/windowsupdate/v6/thanks.aspx?ln=en&&thankspage=5
 
You could also clean your browsers cache and cookies and see if that solves the issue: http://windows.microsoft.com/en-gb/internet-explorer/ie-crashes-stops-working#ie=ie-11
 
Hope this helps!

I think we might need a bit more details to help you
What were you doing when it stopped?
What website were you on?
Does it do this continuously or was it just the one time?

Hi, everytime i get on ie7 and have several things going (it also does it when I just have one thing going) it says internet explorer has stopped working. This is so frustrating because it closes all the tabs, and you have to start all over. Please, anyone with a fix let me know. Thank you.

Gateway Desktop with Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor/ Model: DX4822-01 /Windows 7/ I.E. 8
Recently (approximately the last week) I have randomly been receiving an error message from Internet Explorer that says “Internet Explorer has stopped working. Windows can check online for a solution to the problem.” From that point I am not able to interact with the web page itself in any way. I can click on the “pop up” error message window, at which point the page will normally eventually refresh and I will lose whatsoever I have input on the page, and have to start over again. Can someone please direct me toward a solution for this problem?

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

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.
