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.)

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.

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

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 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,
Bryn

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?

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 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?

A:Internet Explorer has stopped working

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.

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.

Hi and welcome to SevenForums,
Did you ask a question on the Microsoft help if so post a link to it so we won't give duplicate suggestions,
Cheers.

As i was Searching Yahoo Yesterday, Internet explorer stopped working,

displaying that blank page with the "Cannot be displayed, check

connection" and such, for every page i go to. Internet explorer won't

open any web sites at all(all of a sudden), But MSN and AIM still work.

I can type with a friend, and they respond but internet doesnt work. So

i Figured "Hey, Restart it." NO! I restarted it, and now Not only does

internet explorer not work, but neither does MSN or AIM. I ping and I

get a 100% loss. I think it has something to do with corruption in my

registry, I make this assumtion because days prior every folder i

clicked no longer opened but instead searched (I fixed that though,

Thanks to Annoyances.org) But now I have no idea what to do. I heave

searched to the ends of the internet for help and to no avail. So I

come here to Pleade for your help.

Please Respond soon, it's my Birthday ;-;

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,
Tracy

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, 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.

A:Internet Explorer has stopped working....

Hello Incitingriots, and welcome to Vista Forums.

You might see if resetting Internet Explorer may be able to help.

Hope this helps,

This error comes on when you are doing things in Internet Explorer. When clicking on debug the debug looks like it is stepping through, but the warning doesn't show you were the file went. Clicking on close program closes Internet Explorer. First it would close IE then go back to the page you were at. Now it just closes IE. Here is what I have done.

Ran a Rootkit Scan with Malwarebytes. 3 PUP were found.
Ran Super Anti Spyware. Nothing found.
Reset IE.
Internet Explorer is the most current version.

I am having a problem with Internet Explorer.
 
I get the following error message:
 
Internet Explorer has stopped working
 
“Windows is checking for a solution to the problem....”

This often happens when I try to close a window or go back to an earlier page.  It sometimes happens when I am in an e-mail typing page.  Sometimes it just happens out of the blue when I am reading.
 
I get this message at the bottom:
 
“A problem with this webpage caused internet Explorer to close and reopen the tab.”
 
See Attachment 2.
 
If am on an e-mail writing pane, I have lost the unsent e-mail.
