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.

Active desktop recovery


It sounds like there is something causing the process explorer.exe to not start properly. Most likely a virus, but could be something wrong with windows itself. First of all, when you get to that white screen and there is no toolbar down the bottom, bring up the task manager (press control alt delete) and click the new task button down the bottom. Then type in explorer.exe and hopefully that will start up the toolbar down the bottom of the screen. you can also use the new task button to browse for any anti-virus program you have to run a scan to see what is causing the problem.
