Keeps shutting down my search engines


Whereas Internet Explorer is a very popular browser, you may have problems with it from time to time. Internet Explorer has been known to either randomly shut down or close pages.
This can be extremely irritating, especially if you are in the middle of a project.
Use these tips to fix Internet Explorer if it keeps closing Web pages.

Start by deleting your browsing history.
Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab found in the top right corner of the Web browser.
Then, choose the "Delete Browsing History" option.
A box will appear on the computer screen.
Make sure that there are checkmarks next to each option listed in the box.
Click the "Delete" tab to delete the browsing history.
Move to the next step if Internet Explorer keeps closing pages.
Download, install and then run both an anti-malware and an anti-virus software program. Spyware, adware, viruses and other similar infections can cause Internet Explorer to shut down or close pages.
Deleting your browsing history may not take care of these problems.
Spybot and AVG Anti-Virus are two very useful free programs that will search for and remove harmful infections from your computer.
You can download these two programs by using the links in the Resources section below.
http://spybot-search-destroy.soft32.com/
http://download.cnet.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?tag=contentBody;mostPopTwoColWrap
Freeware detect and remove a multitude of adware files and modules.
Go to next step if you are still experiencing problems with Internet Explorer.

Try resetting the Internet Explorer settings.
Open Internet Explorer and then click "Tools."
Choose "Internet Options." Click the "Advanced" tab.
Then, click "Reset" found at the bottom of the box.
A second box will appear on the screen.
Click the "Delete personal settings" option and then click "Reset."
You will need to restart Internet Explorer to finish the process.
Go to the next step if Internet Explorer continues to close pages.
Run Windows Update. Open Internet Explorer and click the "Safety" tab in the top right corner of the Web browser.
Select the "Windows Update" option.
You will be taken to the Windows Update Web page.
Click the "Express" tab on that age.
Windows Update will then check for any updates.
Click the "Install Updates" tab to install any of the recommended updates.

How to do anything


Which version of IE are you using ?
Outlook Express is the official e-mail software of Windows and can be found on any computer running Windows.
However, there are times when it is missing, perhaps because a previous owner or user uninstalled it.
If you cannot locate Outlook Express in your applications, try re-downloading and installing it.
Finding Outlook Express Downloads


Since Outlook Express comes with the Windows operating system, finding a copy of the installation program could prove difficult; few download sites on the Internet carry it.
Searching for "Microsoft Outlook Express" on the Microsoft.com website will also lead to a dead end.
However, the program is available for download on Microsoft.com under another name.
Download the latest version of Internet Explorer from Microsoft.com downloads section by searching for Internet Explorer and clicking the download; it will be the first download to appear. Doing this will also install Outlook Express on your computer.
Once the setup has begun, Internet Explorer will install, and then the setup for Outlook Express will begin. At this point, the setup program will download the newest version of the software.

3rd party program


There's a few things you can do (i know about webcammax).

Download, install, and run Ccleaner from www.ccleaner.com, this will remove residual files left behind. After you install ccleaner, choose "tools" then choose the webcammax software.

If that doesn't work:

Uninstall the logitech software itself (webcammax creates a virtual cam driver and embeds itself).

Restore windows to a previous date from installing webcammax. I know this can be a b*tch, but it may be the only way to do it.

Run ccleaner in normal mode after trying each of these.

I happen to be on Stickam right now. www.stickam.com/profile/nitrotrike. If you want, find me, and I can talk you through it live.
