Maybe it is due to a malware Browser Helper Object .That will cause Internet Explorer process to terminate. In most cases, it may be the malware DLL.So reinstalling Internet Explorer may not help. Disable third-party browser extensions in Internet Explorer following these steps:
1. Click Start, to Settings, and click Control Panel.
2. Double-click Internet Options.
3. Click the Advanced tab.
4. Under Browsing, clear the Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart) check box.
5. Restart Internet Explorer.
Try to open Internet Explorer again. If you can open Internet Explorer, then, a malware BHO is the key reason. Disabling third-party browser extensions is just a workaround and does not eliminate the root of the problem. Use Toolbarcop and spot the malware BHO causing the problem.
