Explore.exe is your windows environment, it is the bar at the bottom and your desktop, etc. This may be working at a high level of CPU cycles because you are trying to do something within windows (It may be because you just opened the task manager screen).

If iexplore is taking up a lot of processes, that is your internet browser. It may be because you are trying to run a large Java applet, or it is currently downloading a large webpage.

Overall, to optimize your PC, I would recommend running disk defragmentor. To do this, go to My Computer, right click your hard drive (Most likely named Local Disk (C:) ), and go to properties. When on the properties page, click the Tools tab at the top and click the Defragment Now... button in the middle of the screen. While in the program, press the Defragment button. I would suggest running this 3 times in a row to make sure that your data is completely defragmented and pushed to the beginning of your drive. Most people will tell you after doing this that their PC runs like new.

    Have you tried emptying out your temporary internet files? You can do that by clicking Tools/Internet Options while in Internet Explorer, then click the button.

I want to delete a program in my control panel. It won't let me. It says "close all web browsers". How do I do that?????? Wayne


Hello,
If all your internet windows appear closed, but the uninstall program is still complaining that they are open, you may have to kill the process. Press ctrl + alt + del. Select processes tab. scroll down the list and highlight and press end task on all that say iexplore.exe, firefox, chrome (if you use).
Regards, Chris

I use IE 8 on XP SP3 and there are a lot of errors (pops out and i get my open windows/pages closed on IE) Also another problem if i close one of my tabs or windows then it closes similar tabs or closes...


If you are using IE 7/8 you can try to run the program without loading any add-ons to see if one of them is causing the problems. To do this, click Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

(You can also load IE without add-ons by clicking START --> RUN and then typing iexplore.exe -extoff)

If those don't work try to re-register IEPROXY.DLL by clicking START --> RUN and typing regsvr32 IEPROXY.DLL and then clicking OK.

When IE dissapears does IExlorer.exe show in the task manager's list of running processes?

Have any toolbars or new sofware been added recently? If so and you are using Win XP you may want to try a system restore to a previous point before the changes were made or uninstall the toolbars completely. Also disabled all Pop-Up blockers to see if that has any effect.clean up ur registry using reginout

Hey,

1. try to open the windows explorer and in the address bar type the address of any website.

4. If the issue still persists, try uninstalling the application using the control pannel and add remove programs, Add remove windows components.

Iexplore.exe


iexplore.exe should not be disabled, required for essential applications to work properly.

Problem getting netzero download to download computer says need to close i need to close explorer browser sites but none are open


Please note that I am using Windows XP so Vista may be slightly different but mostly similar.

Press Ctrl+Alt+Del and open the "Task Manager". Click "Processes" tab and check the box next to "Show processes from all users". Look for the file name of the web browser you are using and here are two common web browsers.

Microsoft Internet Explorer - iexplorer.exe (If you close explorer.exe by mistake, Windows XP users can go to "Applications", "New Task", and type in "C:/WINDOWS/explorer.exe" or Vista users can simply log out and log in through the task manager.)
Mozilla Firefox - firefox.exe

If you use a different web browser, right click the shortcut for your web browser and click "Properties". The file name will be after the last slash ( \ ) in the target box. File names usually end with ".exe".

Click the file name when you find it and click "End Process" but before you do, you are most likely viewing this with a web browser so this window (and all other windows for your web browser) will close as soon you end the proccess. This means make sure you finish what you are doing and be ready for it to close.

IExplorer.exe -virus taking all my cpu power


You will probably have to go to the store and pick up an anti virus program such as Norton or McAfee.

Unless you can download one.
