Internet Explorer crashes or stop working

This topic is credit to Microsoft Corporation and this information applies to Windows Internet Explorer 7 and Windows Internet Explorer 8. It can be applicable to other versions of IE too.

If Internet Explorer crashes, stops working, or closes immediately after being opened, you might get an error message about Internet Explorer not working or that it encountered a problem and needs to close. First make sure that you have a good connection to the Internet. If you can't open Internet Explorer or if it opens briefly and then closes, the problem might be caused by low memory, or corrupted or missing system files. Restart your computer to clear the memory and then open Internet Explorer by itself.

If your Internet connection is good and you've restarted your computer but Internet Explorer is still having problems, try the following:

> Disable all add-ons
> Scan for malware
> Install the latest updates

If you still can't get internet explorer working, do this:

> Reset Internet Explorer settings


You can change your Internet Explorer settings using Internet Options. You can specify the first Web page you see when you start the browser, delete temporary Internet files stored on your computer, use Content Advisor to block access to objectionable material, and specify how colors and fonts are displayed on Web pages. You can also set your security level and specify which programs to use for e-mail and reading Internet newsgroups.

Open Internet Options in Control Panel.
> To open Internet Options, click Start, click Control Panel, click Network and Internet Connections, and then click Internet Options.
> If you got Internet Properties, click Advanced then click Reset

> Internet Options allows you to change the settings of Internet Explorer, but it cannot be used to change the settings of other Web browsers.
