w8.1pre 32bit. IE11 - how can I stop the irritating msg every time I quit IE11 - "this program has stopped working (windows is looking for solution..." ? I tried resetting IE by using the option "reset", which did not reset - the addons which should have disappeared on reboot, were still there. Another workaround? Thank you.

Get Chrome and/or Firefox. Or Opera...

Useful answers only please. The stock "try another browser" doesn't address the post. Tx.

FF is meh. Nothing amazing. Chrome, tracks the crap out of you.

As for the issue, I haven't seen one solution yet and I have looked. It might get fixed in a patch though as they just released a patch to fix the flickering in flash videos

Probably a Windows error. Try to see if System File Checker will fix it for you
Winkey plus 'X'
Choose Command Prompt (Admin)
Type sfc /scannow then Enter

You could also try chkdsk
At CMD Prompt
Type chkdsk /f /r then Enter. (note spaces before /). Type Y and Enter to run the program when you restart Windows. Expect it to take a long time if you have a large drive. Use this to check out the chkdsk log
