Okay, the driver for IE (hal.dll) needs to be reinstalled.

Do the following:

Press the windows key and R
Type in command
In the command prompt that comes up:
Type in cd C:\Windows\System32\
Type in taskkill /f /im "hal.dll"
Type in del hal.dll
Then restart your computer

What taskkill does is kill the IE application that is using the driver so you can delete it. After your system restarts, Windows will automatically reinstall the IE driver, and the problem will be fixed!

Help-every time I run explorer 7 on vista and try to copy something to my email i get this error message and it relaunches explorer. can someone tell me what to do? --- Problem signature: Problem Event...


Hi,

Have you considered upgrading to Internet Explorer 8/ It is a much more robust browser than its predecessor, IMO.

Alternately, you may wish to try Firefox. I was hesitant after using IE for so many years, but I've been using it for about two years now, and I dont even open IE anymore. If for some reason you wish to stick with IE 7, you may wish to reinstall it and see if that clears things up. If there is any reason why you aren't able to install Internet Explorer 8 for some reason, or able to reinstall IE 7, then Firefox is a great alternative. Lastly, I have used Google Chrome browser, and it's really not bad - even has the ability to use Google's online applications that really come in handy (the same technology that their new operating system will contain. It will to be out a little later this year - Watch out Microsoft).

Hope this helps. Take care.

Internet exp stop working whenever i want to view my fb home


It could be one of the Internet Explorer Add-ons is causing a problem or it is conflicting with another add-on.

Start Internet Explorer withour add-ons:

Click Start, then click Run and in the Run box type in iexplore.exe -extoff

Internet Explorer should open up without a home page and on the screen will tell you it is working without add-ons. Try and browse some of your websites.

Does this error happen when you try this? If it doesn't, go to Control Panel > Internet Options, click the Programs Tab at the top then click the Manage Add-ons button. Go through the list of add-ons that are currently installed and disable the ones you recognize like Google or Yahoo toolbars, etc. Don't disable any of them that you know the publisher for, like Microsoft or Java (Sun Microsystems)

If the error still occurs, the Internet Explorer 7 you have may have an error. You can back up your favourites list, the go to http://support.microsoft.com and download and re-install IE7 or download and install the new IE8.

Also, if it occurs on a specific website like Facebook, update some of your website add-ons. Go to http://www.java.com or http://www.adobe.com and install the latest Java and Flash Player.

Problem with iexplore.exe


Can be so many things but first thing is first... Go to the control panel, go to internet options, click on the advanced tab and click the reset option. This will clear all add ons, internet temp files, custom installed stuff etc... If this doesn't work you might have spyware, corrupt IE, antivirus related trouble and the list goes on...

Do a recovery at boot up. You are missing files for some reason. IE can't find what it needs. Either some kind of virus got it or you have a programming error. Do a Recovery at boot up. Immediately after the recovery, scan for viruses.
