If you have an anti virus program in your computer, scan the drive for viruses or potentially unwanted programs. Try IE after the scan.

Have you tried downloading the latest version of Internet Explorer?

See if you have the latest version installed by following the below link:

If it is the latest version, try uninstalling IE:

1. Click Start > Control Panel > Programs and Features
2. On the left hand window pane, click "View installed updates".
3. Scroll down to the "Microsoft Windows" section. Locate Internet Explorer (8, 9, 10 etc.). Right-click and select "uninstall". Click "Yes" to confirm.

Once this is done, go to the link above and download and install the latest version again. See if that fixes it.

Internet Explorer cannot open? how to fix


Internet Explorer has encountered a problem
Internet Explorer reports this problem, just because DLL files is out of date or get missing. You can update IE to latest version or download DLL file which is missing or corrupt from Microsoft.com.

IE freezes
There is a popup window trying to open, it seems load for ever. Then the browser freeze for about a minute. You have to close it but for no other choices. Run an antivirus, you will find tons of Spyware. They tend to modify your registry and damage Internet Explorer. Go to Safe Mode, clean them with your anti-virus.

Internet Explorer cannot open.
If you click IE icon, it never open but gives you an hour glass for a few seconds. You should check the compatibility. This problem occurs when you download IE7, IE8 for your Vista or Win7. Uninstall the current version from Control Panel and restart your computer. To solve this problem, you can update Windows. Click Start, point to All Programs, and then click Windows Update.

You will need to uninstall Internet explorer.
By uninstalling it Internet Explorer will be reverted back to an earlier edition.
This should fix your issue
If not try system Restore on your computer.
If that does not work go to another PC and download firefox to a thumb drive
use that and install it on the net book

Internet explorer keeps crashing when I log onto facebook. Can you tell me whats going on?


The issue seems to be the with the Plug in installed. Please Disable all the Plugin's or try Using the Internet Explorer in Safe Mode(Without Addons). If the IE works fine without Addons,
Then it's time to find the corrupted Plugin.

Start Enabling Plugin one by one. I suggest to keep Plugins related to any Antivirus application disabled, start enabling the Adobe Plugins. Uninstall the Corrupted Plugin and update the remaining Plugins..

This resolves the issue.

Internet explorer will not stay on. Dies immediately. Every other aspect of computer works fine. Any idea?


I don't know which version of Windows you are running, but it sounds as if you may have a corrupted IE file. You should try uninstalling Internet Explorer and re installing a new fresh copy. You can uninstall it by going to the control panel and accessing the add remove software option and then select Internet Explorer. Then you will need to get a new copy of Internet explorer to download. You can get this by accessing the Microsoft website. (you may need to use another computer or browser to get online and then save it to a thumb drive or a cd.) Good Luck

From another computer (known to be clean)
Go here
Download UBCD and butn it to a CD

Boot your buggy compuer from that CD and use the various antivisu AND the antispyware itilities on there to make sure you computer is clean.

You should be good to go once you have done that..

When i open internet explorer 2 browser pages open then the pages lock and stop responding


What version of IE are you running?
Here's one post that may be related to your issue. That's a possible fix, I guess.
But I'm thinking either your installation of IE is problematic, or you have some add-ons that are causing a problem.
Begin by cleaning out your temporary internet files, cookies, browser history, etc. Check IE. Then try starting IE without add-ons, by right clicking the icon on the desktop, or go to Start>All Programs>accessories>system tools>IE without add-ons. If it starts well and runs ok this way, you'll need to locate the problem add-on and disabling or uninstalling it. (See this article.)
Still not working? You could try to go to Tools>Internet Options>Advanced and Restore to default settings...That may repair the function. If it doesn,t then go here and check out the IE troubleshooter.
But more likely you'll need to uninstall IE and reinstall it.
If you've had problems with malware on the system, I recommend this malware removal guide as a good place to begin.

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!

I can't figure out what my problem is..


Try using Mozilla firefox, which loads straight to Google. If that works use that for internet. If it does work, try uninstalling windows Internet Explorer and reinstalling it. Also make sure you download all windows updates as this will fix most issues with IE!
