Internet explorer crashes as soon as i open it

Everytime I try and open internet explorer it immediately crashes. I have read on some forums that it could be caused by an Add On, therefore I have tried running internet explorer from the sytem tools menu with No Add Ons, but it still does the same thing opens and immediately crashes. I have runn CCleaner hoping that perhaps a registry problem was the cause, but this did not resolve the issue either. PLease Help!

  1. Are you talking about IE9 or another version . I just had the same problem with IE9 and I ran Windows update a few times and it seemed to fix it.
  2. What IE are you using? If it's 8...

    Go to your Start, control panel, programs and featuress, and select "Turn windows features on or off".

    Select IE 8, make sure it's unchecked and select OK. It may need a restart. Once restarted, go back to the same spot and check IE 8 and it should re-install.

    If it's IE 9, follow the steps as above, but you might need to use "uninstall a program" vs "Turn windows features on or off".

    Let us know if it works or not.
  3. Hi,

    +1 for add on crash.

    Start IE9 in safe mode (go into start menu, all programs, system tools and click on Internet explorer (no add-ons) then disable or remove any 3rd party and try to start it normally
  4. Interent Explorer crashing on opening, as well as the blue screen of death for page_fault errors, is caused by improperly seated ram or defectivfe ram in ram bank 0. If you start getting the BSOD, it's doing more damage to that ram bank, and if left unchecked it will cause permanent damage. Things like windows update will not install, for instance. Eventually the machine wil be crashing often, and you will be due for a new motherboard. The fiurst ram bank is key to most core functions, and internet explorer is one of the backbones of the PC GUI; display drivers are located here too. 3rd party browsers do not use Bank0, and this is why using firefox is the common across the board fix for iexplore.exe not working. While BHOs can often cause this, and the Microsoft Community and forums advocate this fix, the source of the problem is actually the ram module in Bank0. Dell motherboards and nvidia drivers are especially susceptible to this fault.
    Remove the first (bank0) ram module, rotate the ram from your last ram bank there, and you should be good to go. You need at least 2GB of ram on board for this to work, so if you do not have two banks worth of 1GB ram, buy more.

    I am not savy at computer stuff....I would need a step by step process of how to do such a thing.

    Thanks

    If you tried resetting and reinstalling IE and have had no luck, try the script at this page:
    http://iefaq.info/index.php?action=artikel&cat=42&id=133&artlang=en

    At the bottom of the article, you will see "attached files'. These scripts were what worked for me.
  7. I had the same problem with IE 11 on Windows 7. What I did, from Control Panel > Program and Features, on the top left corner there is a link called " Turn Windows Features On or Off", by clicking on this link a new little window opens up. From the list in this window untick the box next to Explorer and then restart the Windows although the system does not ask you for it.
    When the system is back, repeat this process but this time insert that tick back and restart the computer again. I did this and I managed to fix the issue.

    Good Luck.
  8. -SOLVED- YMMV:
    Win7 ie8 to ie11 upgrade caused BSOD in old Dell box with newer graphics card.
    Found this on another post and it worked for me.

    Control Panel_
    ---> Internet Options_
    -------> Advanced TAB_
    ------------> Accelerated graphics - Check Mark <Y> Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering.
    RESTART

    Problem solved
  9. If none of the other solutions work uninstall the latest windows update or rollback IE to the previous version.


    Reset Internet Explorer to defaults

    1. press start type andinetcpl.cpl and then press enter(open it)

    2. internet options will be displayed, go to the advanced tab and click reset

    3. after it completes close all open Internet explorer pages and attempt to do a google search, if the problem persists continue.


    Reinstall Internet Explorer

    1. press start and type appwiz.cpl and then press enter(open it)

    2. select "Turn Windows Features on or off" (it might prompt for admin password, if so enter it and click okay)

    3. untick Internet Explorer, click okay this will uninstall Internet Explorer

    4. click "Turn windows Features on or off" again, tick Internet Explorer, click okay. this will install Internet Explorer

    attempt to do a google search again, If the problem persists continue,


    Rollback Windows Updates

    1. press start and type appwiz.cpl and then press enter(open it)

    2. select "View installed updates"

    3. in the search box up the top right of the window type "internet"

    4. Internet explorer will be the search result click it and then select "Uninstall" click yes. this will revert your internet explorer to the previous version.

    5. restart your computer

    6. do a simple google search to see your success.

    if the problem still persists try and find the most recent windows update and uninstall it. if after all of this doesn't work try to do a system restore, to do this just type system restore into the start menu and open it, follow the prompts keep going back until it works. but I'm sure all of the above will fix the issue. if no websites work at all its most likely another issue.


    Install antivirus/malware

    now you have internet you can use before going nuts and downloading everything your heart desires I suggest to run a malware/virus scan using Malwarebytes. now that you can use google search for "malwarebytes" download, install it and run a quick scan, if it finds anything then do a full scan and restart your computer if asked. this will make sure there's nothing else hiding away causing internet explorer to crash.


    Best of luck!

  10. 4-16-2016 I HAD THE SAME PROBLEM. BOTH IE 10 ON WIN7, AND SKYPE. BOTH KEPT CLOSING. I THEN REMEMBERED THAT I HAD LOOKED AT A SPAM EMAIL A COUPLE OF DAYS BEFORE. I USUALLY ONLY USE FIREFOX FOR BROWSING. WHEN I FOUND OUT ABOUT THE PROBLEM, I TRIED ALL POSTED SOLUTIONS. NOTHING WORKED, BUT I KEEP MONTHLY BACKUPS ON AN EXTERNAL HARD DRIVE.
    I USE "ACRONIS TRUE IMAGE" , TO SAVE MY BACKUPS. SO I INSTALLED MY LAST BACKUP, AND ALL IS FINE AGAIN. SO I ASSUME THAT IT WAS SOME KIND OF WORM OR VIRUS THAT WAS IN THE SPAM EMAIL. ????
