Question about Microsoft Internet Explorer 8

1 Answer

If I have more than one tab open, I cannot close any tabs without IE freezing and I have to shut it down in task manager. I seriously want to bang my head against the desk. I love the multiple tab option, and I can't live without it. But this problem has gone on WAY too long. Help!

1. The Mouse o There are two examples of a computer freezing up. One is when a single program on the computer is frozen, while the other is when the entire system freezes up. To determine which type of problem a computer is experiencing, attempt to move the mouse on the screen. If the mouse pointer is visible and moves, the issue is with a single program. To determine which program is frozen, bring up the Windows Task Manager. This can be done by right clicking a blank area of the taskbar and selecting "Task Manager," or by pressing the keyboard shortcut "Ctrl+Alt+Delete" and selecting "Task Manager". The program or programs that are frozen will show as "Not Responding" on the Applications tab of the Task Manager. Click the frozen program and click "End Task" to close it. Visit the program's website for specific troubleshooting tips if the program continues to freeze. If the mouse pointer is stationary on the computer screen, the entire system is frozen.
Unfreezing a Frozen Computer o If the entire system freezes up, it will need to be rebooted. To do so, hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys. While holding both keys down, press the "Delete" key twice. This should shut down the system and automatically restart it. If the computer does not respond, try the keyboard shortcut once more. If it remains frozen and does not reboot, you will need to perform a hard shut down. This simply means pressing and holding down the power button until the computer completely shuts down. Once it has shut down, leave it off for a few minutes and then turn the power on once more.
Continuous Freezing o A frozen computer might be a one-time occurrence, or it could be the sign of a more serious problem. If the computer continues to freeze up, there are several items that should be checked out. The first step to take is looking at any recently installed software. Programs such as freeware or shareware often contain malware that can damage the system. Even reputable software can contain a damaged file. Uninstall recently added programs and determine if that was the cause of the computer freezing up. To uninstall a program, go to the Control Panel from the Start Menu. Select "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows XP or earlier, or "Programs and Features" in Windows Vista. In the list of installed programs, select the one to be removed and click "Uninstall." Follow any prompts and restart the computer when the process is complete. Next, update and run both the antivirus program and spyware removal program installed on the computer, or use the link provided in resources. Check the Windows website and download any updates.
System Tools Finally, you will want to check the available space on the computer's hard drive and use the built-in error checking and cleaning tools. Go to "My Computer," right click "Local Disk (C:)" and click "Properties." On the "General" tab, make sure there is sufficient free space. The "Disk Cleanup" tool will free more space by deleting unnecessary files. Click the "Disk Cleanup" button to run the tool. On the "Tools" tab there are more tools that can solve the problems causing a computer to freeze up. The Error Checking Tool finds and corrects hard disk errors and the Defragmentation tool will reorganize system files, helping the computer run better.

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

open the task manager by pressing CTRL,ALT and DELETE at the same time and selecting task manager, click the applications tab and select IE8, then click on end process. This will stop the need to reboot.
I have had the exact same problem and now use firefox instead, faster and simpler to use. Plus there are so many addons that you can use for downloading and speeding things up.

I am downloading software with problems


Are you using another browser other than IE? Some other browsers use the IE engine and will trigger this message. Also look at you running processes: Press Ctrl+Alt+Del (in Vista then select Task Manager) When task manager appears Click the Processes Tab, then click the word Description in the 5th coloum at the top of that coloum to sort on description. Scroll down to the "I" and see if you see "Internet Explorer" as a running process IF SO, and you know you have shut down Internet Explorer right click on IE and then select End Process and then answer yes. When All instances of IE are remove from the processes then try to reinstall your software. Let me know if this helped you!
