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!

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.

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.

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

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:

At the bottom of the article, you will see "attached files'. These scripts were what worked for me.

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.
