  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.
     
  2. Undo anything you may have done recently. Do you know how to use system restore?
     
  3. ^ Yep, what he said and stay off dodgy porn sites.
     
  4. Fixed for you
     
  5. msr

    msr LE

    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.

  6. I always thought all those were part of the inner working, wiggly finger voodoo stuff from inside the computer! can i really bin them all?

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

    Why bother using Chrome or Firefox?
     
  10. 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.
     
  11. msr

    msr LE

    and if you read the first post, he is trying to fix a problem with IE
     
  12. I realise that but why bother if Firefox and Chrome are working. It's not different internets on each browser.
     
  13. 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.
     
  14. Interesting. Is there a reason for that?
