This is caused by corrupted mp4 files, or corrupt, bad not updated codecs. Suggest checking the videos you are trying to run to make sure they are not corrupted. also suggest updating codecs.

I've had the same problem. It is not corrupt video files a it appens on every video file including Hulu TV, comcast web page, you tube ,,, u name it, they don't work. I get the nfamous "Internet Explorer has stopped working". I only have 2 add-ons, my wireless printer and Password1. I have tried disabling them but I still can't run a video. I have a 6 month old Dell all in one with Win 7 nd IE9. At one time I used to be able to see video on this computer but no more. What else can I try. Yes, the video drivers are current.
