When it happens, open the Process Manager with cont/alt/del. Find explorer.exe and kill it.

Then open the process manager again and this time go up to the top and select File, New Task (run) . If there's a drop down list, select explorer.exe if it's there, and click ok. If it's not there, type it in and select ok. Explorer should open normally again without having to restart.

Windows internet explorer not working


was explorer working perfectly on your computer previously? If yes, you can try system restore.

System restore can help to back date your computer to the time when explorer was working.

Start > All programs > Accessories > System tools > System restore.

Read and follow instructions. System will restart during the restore process.....

After that try again and observe if explorer will function/work properly/normally.

Please let me know if this doesn't solve your problem so that I can help you further.

    Internet Explorer Closes

    If your system wasn't set up to do MS Auto-update from the factory, I recommend you use it.
    It is likely that the IE and possibly other Windows functions need one of the hundreds of tweaks MS constantly makes to try to keep their Edsel working properly.

    Open your Control Panel from the misnamed 'Start' menu, click on Automatic Updates and check (or set) your settings.

    BTW, lots of luck with your Compaq/HP laptop; I won't own another one nor service any HP system again.
