That normally means a virus or a spyware. Try these first.

Go to www.malwarebytes.com then install it and run it. Download the latest

Go to www.avast.com and the install and run after the malwarebytes

These 2 will take quite a while especially if you have a lardge Hard Drive but it will clean your computer. If you need further assistance of if these 2 do not work please reply back.

I have vista and when I go to print, it says internet explorer stopped working and I have to turn the computer off to restart internet explorer


Hi, there are many reasons to the issue that you are facing while printing. The first step that you can do is reset the internet explorer to its manufacturer's default settings. To do this Open Control Panel > Internet Options. Once you are there, open Advanced Tab and locate the button RESET. You can go ahead and reset Internet Explorer. Once done try to open Internet Explorer and try to click on "Tools" menu and then select "Internet Options" again and go to Advanced Tab and once again try to RESET it.
Now try to check it by printing. This time there won't be any issue while printing.
Cheers!

Internet Explorer cannot open? how to fix


Internet Explorer has encountered a problem
Internet Explorer reports this problem, just because DLL files is out of date or get missing. You can update IE to latest version or download DLL file which is missing or corrupt from Microsoft.com.

IE freezes
There is a popup window trying to open, it seems load for ever. Then the browser freeze for about a minute. You have to close it but for no other choices. Run an antivirus, you will find tons of Spyware. They tend to modify your registry and damage Internet Explorer. Go to Safe Mode, clean them with your anti-virus.

Internet Explorer cannot open.
If you click IE icon, it never open but gives you an hour glass for a few seconds. You should check the compatibility. This problem occurs when you download IE7, IE8 for your Vista or Win7. Uninstall the current version from Control Panel and restart your computer. To solve this problem, you can update Windows. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

Windows Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.


Maybe you need to reinstall your system back the Vista.

But before then, have you tried using other explorers like, opera mini, Mozilla fire fox, Comet Bird etc.?

Try this first.

Take care.

Each time I try to get onto the internet, I get the message ''Internet Explorer has encountered a problem, and needs to close.'' Has anyone else had this happen, or is it just my computer? This started...


IE8 can sometimes act this way. _Uninstal it through the add/remove programs from the control panel.
Reinstal it only if you want to. I don't use it.

Getting message stating add-on was running when problem occurred


Try going into your control panel & uninstall your Internet explorer, then re-install it. IE7 uninstall can be found in the main add-remove program window, IE6 uninstall can be found under the add-remove windows components part of the add-remove programs. To re-install IE7, though, you need to go to windows update to download IE7 again. This won't be a problem because uninstalling IE7 automaticaly returns you to IE6
