Some people have experienced this very frustrating behavior. There are some steps you can take to determine the cause and correct the situation. After each step, you may wish to check the behavior.

  1. Run the Disk Cleanup utility (available by going to Start> All Programs> Accessories> System Tools) Make sure you have checked the Temporary Internet Files and Temp files.
  2. If it needs it, Defragment your hard drive.
  3. Visit Windows Update and make sure your system is current. Run a custom update and check for any available hardware drivers & firmware for your system. (It is not necessary to install IE8 at this time. In fact, I'd recommend waiting until after you resolve this issue.)
  4. Frequently these lock-ups in IE are caused by add-ons to the browser. Please follow the instructions in this article to troubleshoot your browser add-ons.
  5. You may have outdated hardware drivers that are causing conflicts on your system. Please follow the instructions in this excellent tutorial to update your Windows drivers.
  6. There is excellent advise given in this post; please apply whatever is applicable.
  7. Use the Internet Explorer self-help tool available by clicking here
  8. Remove older versions of Java with JavaRa available by clicking here, and update Java.
  9. Update your Adobe Reader & Flashplayer by going to http://www.adobe.com/downloads/
  10. Check for malware and spyware. Consult this protocol and use this tool
  11. Take a look at this forum for tips and trusted advice on Internet Explorer
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.
If I've managed to answer your question or solve a problem, please take just a moment to rate this post....thanks!

If your Internet Explorer keeps randomly crashing (closing by itself), there may be an add-on or temporary page disrupting the connection. Every time you browse the web, Internet Explorer keeps track of the websites you visit. It keeps these pages, along with cookie trackers, in the "Temporary Browsing History" folder. Some websites cause Internet Explorer to crash.

Open the Internet Explorer browser. Go to "Tools > Delete Browsing History." Hit "Delete All." Check off the box that says "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons." Hit "OK." Close and reopen the browser. b> Disable Add-Ons b> Go to "Start > Search." Type "Internet Explorer" and hit "Enter." The computer will search for any files with this label. Double-click on the file that says "Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)." This will allow you to browse in IE without any additional plug-ins or add-ons that might be causing the browser to crash. b> Reset Internet Explorer b> Open the IE browser. Go to "Tools > Internet Options." Hit "Advanced." Click on "Reset" and then hit "Enter." Close and reopen the browser. You might have to many programs trying to or accessing your computer or the internet at the same time or a virus Scroll to bottom toolbar (bottom of screen) right click select task manager applications and processes to see you what's running and ticking over if you see anything you don't need running select end now and you might uninstall that specific program if you or computer does not require it to run and some unnecessary programs that could be jamming up your computer also under processes see what is ticking over in the background again if you see something you don't need to be running select end now and users you will see who is using your computer

How to close ie browsers


In order to close IE, you just need to click on the X that is located at the top right of your browser window.

If this does not completely close IE, you can also check to see all the running applications and processes on your computer by visiting the Windows Task Manager.

You can access the WIndows Task Manager by pressing Ctrl + Shift + ESC.

My autocad 2011 is not opening . it says the application was unable to start correctly (oxc0150002) click ok to close the application . i use google chrome and desktop . Win 7 ultimate installed .


Try this first:

Uninstall and Reinstall the Visual C++ 2005 and 2008 redistributables. Restart the computer and try it again.

If that doesn't work:
Try using the repair option on the install software.

If that doesn't work:
Uninstall autocad completely, restart the comp, reinstall autocad.

Also what version of 2011 do you have? Student Edition or just the regular one?

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

Hi. my computer won't log off, shut off, or let me close a tab/window What do i do??


press the Ctrl+Alt+Delete at the same time... depending on the computer and its age varies how long it will take to bring up this "task manager" window. Then you can click on the program thats open that locked your computer up and click "end task" to force it to close. Or you can simply press and hold the power button on the comp and force a shutdown but then you can lose anything you were working on that you didnt save. Simply restart it after it shuts down. Good Luck

When I go to START and SHUTDOWN instead of shutting down like it use to do, I get a message instead that announces the programs that are still open. I would just like for it to shut down like it use to do.


Hello,

you are getting the message because probably you did not close opened programs or web page before you attempt shutting down.

Check your task bar and make sure all opened programs/application are closed before you shut down your computer.

This is all you need to do for your computer to shut-down in its normal way.

Also to be sure all programs are closed, press Ctrl + Alt + Delete on your keyboard and task manager icon will pop-out. Then you can close any opened program from there.

Take care.

Data execution


DEP (data execution prevention) attempts to separate "data" (such as the text of a webpage) from "instructions" ("move the string 'abc' to locations '12345/12346/12347'"), to prevent computer-hackers from introducing "data" (downloaded from a maliciously-constructed web-page) into an area marked as "instructions". The "threat" here is that the "data" will actually be "instructions" of the hacker's choosing, thus giving the hacker a chance to run instructions to completely "take-over" control of your computer.

Click "Start"
Click "All Programs"
Click "Accessories"
Click "System Tools"
Click "Internet Explorer (no add-ons)"
Do some web-surfing.
Close Internet Explorer.
If it closes "normally", then one of the "add-ons" that usually is loaded when Internet Explorer starts is causing the DEP exception.

Start Internet Explorer.
Click Tools
Click Manage Add-ons.
Choose one "suspicious" add-on, and "disable" it.
Close I.E.
If it closes normally, then that add-on should _stay_ as "disabled".

I need 2 restart comp after running graphic apps


Sounds like your system is not freeing the RAM after using the program. You can manually close them by going into the processes section of your task manager or rebooting. Best solution would be to try upgrading system RAM and see if more RAM fixes the problem. Hope this helps.

Will not close down


These monitors go into a standby just incase you are only restarting the PC.
To turn it off properly, hit the power button on the monitor before Windows has completely turned the computer off.

IE: tell Windows to shutdown, when you see the blue screen telling you Windows is shutting down, turn it off then.

Hope that helps
