Using Win XP and latest IE. Certain directories, especially ones with scans, cause shutdown of IE. Yet, if I send that directory to an exte5rnal storage device, IE then displays and functions fine. I already updated IE to no avail.
1. You might have incompatible add-ons:
Go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools
and click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
2. Tools | Internet Options | Advanced
Scroll to the bottom and click Reset Internet Explorer Settings. Read this
How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES):
Note that the Reset IE Settings button will delete AutoComplete data (such

3. Malware already installed on the computer: Help with malware
All MS-MVP Sites.

owe it to the author. See also:
Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
