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?

During the past few weeks I've been getting the pop up message "Internet Explorer has stopped working." Followed by "A problem has caused Internet Explorer to stop working. Windows will notify you if a solution is found." Immediately after this about 50% of the time the page I was on was able to recover. The other half of the time I'm directed back to the Google Homepage. I am using IE8 and never had a problem until this started. Would anyone have any suggestions for trouble shooting or a way to remedy this annoying problem?

Try clearing your cache files and run Malwarebytes and your resident antivirus. See if you can update to IE9 and check the difference.

Hi,

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.

Also if you have addons disable all then re-enable one by one to find out if it's an addon thats the problem.

Make sure your java is fully up to date as well, and turn off your java automatic updates !

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".

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.

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.

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,

This is the desktop version of IE. No extra Add Ons except Norton items and Flash.

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

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).

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, I too have had exactly the same problem, and solved it in exactly the same way but not in safe mode. I then reinstalled the updates and have so had no problems. Sorry I can't help more with this one, but a problem shared......

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.

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.

Cheers.

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.

Hi,

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:

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.

Hi guys
For a while we have an issue with an error message popping up saying "Internet Explorer has stopped working". This is happening only when using Outlook.
Apparently Outlook is trying to lunch an IE process and this only can run if the user has local admin rights. Unfortunatelly in our environment this is not possible. If we disable IE the error message is not popping up anymore.

We are using IE11 and Win10.  I had this issue raised with the Office department and they advised I should raise it here.
Any ideas?
Many thanks
Sorin
