internet explorer crashes


If Internet Explorer is crashing , your dilema likely lies with a buggy browser add-on. However, Internet Explorer crashes can have a alot of other causes, including incompatibilities with hardware rendering and possible malware.


crashes are often cause by buggy add ons. you can check to see if that is the problem by running internet explorer with out add ons
To do so, open the Start menu and launch the All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons) shortcut.
If running Internet Explorer with no browser add-ons fixed your problem, you can disable the add-ons one by one to identify the one causing the problem. Click the gear menu and select Manage add-ons to open the Manage Add-ons window.
Select an add-on in the Toolbars and Extensions category and click the Disable button to disable it. Disable add-ons one by one - or disable them all and enable them one by one - until you identify the add-on causing the problem.

malware can often be a problem with applications crashing especially for an browser like IE. so scan your system with antivirus software for sure.

Internet Explorer's Add-on Management feature lets you view, enable and disable the list of add-ons which can be loaded by Internet Explorer. Add-ons include browser helper objects, ActiveX controls, toolbar extensions and browser extensions.
To view or modify the add-ons on your computer by launching Manage Add-ons:
1. In Internet Explorer, click the Tools button, click Manage Add-ons, and then click Enable or Disable Add-ons. 2. To disable an add-on, select it in the list in the Manage Add-ons dialog box and select the Disable radio button. 3. To enable an add-on, select it in the list in the Manage Add-ons dialog box and select the Enable radio button. 4. Click OK to confirm. Note: Disabling an add-on does not remove it from your computer. It simply prevents Internet Explorer from executing the add-on's code-it does not prevent other software from executing the add-on. If an add-on is disabled, website pages that rely on that add-on may not work as expected. For more information on Add-ons, click the "Learn more about add-ons" help link in the Manage Add-ons dialog box.

IE8 will usually crash when using Yahoo and sometimes when just browsing. The only solution is to restart the computer, it seems. I'm wondering if I just need to use a different browser.


It's probably an addon in IE thats causing it to crash. Here is how to disable them:

Here's How:
  1. From the Internet Explorer menu, click Tools ' Internet Options.
  2. Click the Programs tab.
  3. Click Manage add-ons.
  4. Click the Add-on you wish to disable, then click the Disable radio button. Note that this option will only be available when an Add-on is selected.
  5. IE7 users also have the ability to detele the ActiveX control. Follow the steps outlined above to select the ActiveX control, then click the Delete button found under Delete ActiveX. Note that this option will only be available when an ActiveX control is selected.
  6. Not all Add-ons in the list are active. To see which Add-ons are actively loaded with Internet Explorer, toggle the Show dropdown to view Add-ons currently loaded in Internet Explorer.
  7. Click OK to exit the Manage Add-ons menu
  8. Click OK to exit the Internet Options menu
  9. If a necessary add-on has been mistakenly disabled, repeat steps 1-3 above, highlight the disabled add-on, then click the Enable radio button.
  10. Close Internet Explorer and restart it for changes to take effect


I would personally use Firefox or Chrome instead though...
