Help needed with IE

#1
Hi can anyone offer some advice to rectify a problem I have with Internet Explorer. The problem is on trying to open IE I get the following dialogue boxes.

Internet Explorer has stopped working. Windows is checking for a solution to the problem.

A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the programme and notify you if a solution is found.


I am using both Firefox and Google Chrome until I can resolve the problem and I am not having any problems with them.

Please any advice in simple steps as I am by no means a geek.

Run this: Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download

Then uninstall Java, Flash Player, Shockwave player, Acrobat Reader and Adobe Air. Only re-install if required.

Finally run windows update and take all of the updates.

Without wanting to be facetious, just use Chrome or Firefox. Why bother using IE?

Well, if you read the first post only IE isn't working. Chrome and Firefox are fine. Self explanatory really. Why the OP uses 3 browsers is another matter.

and if you read the first post, he is trying to fix a problem with IE

I realise that but why bother if Firefox and Chrome are working. It's not different internets on each browser.

IIRC, if you bank online it's good practice to use a browser exclusively for that purpose. By extension it probably follows that it's good practice to use a browser for each account.

Interesting. Is there a reason for that?
No there's not. Unless you are doing your business banking in America. If so, then use this: Knoppix Linux Boot CD, Download Disk and Documents, Discuss, Get Help

To prevent 99% of hacking attempts, do the following:

Run windows update (from Control Panel) and take all the optional updates apart from Bing Toolbar/Desktop and Silverlight - right click and select Hide Update.
Delete (and re-install if necessary) Adobe Air, Adobe shockwave, Adobe Acrobat reader, Adobe flash player, Java (all variants)
Make sure that you have antivirus installed and it is up to date (free: Microsoft Security Essentials - Microsoft Windows)
Install, update and run malwarebytes: Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware download
Check that all your software is up to date: Free Computer Security - Personal Software Inspector (PSI) - Secunia
And don't click on any links or open any attachments in any email you were not expecting to receive, or which looks too good to be true.

P.S. the above advice is also good/applicable if you have an android phone or Apple Mac.

Well, you don't say which version of IE you are using or what your operating system is - WinXP, Win7 ?
For users of Win7 they have access to a later version of IE than is allowed to WinXP users.

Anyway, did you know you can go to the Microsoft website and download the latest version for your OS?

https://www.google.co.uk/search?cli...id=opera&redir_esc=&ei=csqOUc_xCsO-0QXzvYGgDQ

should point you in the right direction.

Download it. Reinstall it. If the problems keep happening, then you need to take another course of action.

Very often. Downloading the latest version or just reinstalling and restarting your computer will solve the problem.

Give it a go.
