I am just now having a very similar problem with my internet explorer. My
laptop is HP, it came with windows vista. I've had the laptop for a year now
and only recently the "Internet Explorer has stopped working" dialog box has
appeared. I can't use Internet Explorer and unfortunatly I don't have any
other way of accessing the internet from my laptop so I can't download any of
the malwares you've recommended.
I've tried to open Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons) but it just says that
"Internet Explorer is already running with Add-Ons disabled would you like to
contine to your homepage?" When I click to go to homepage the "IE has stopped
working" appears and shuts down IE.
I've also right clicked on IE and used Run as Administrator but same problem.
I've also reset Internet Explorer and then restart computer but still same
I also have this problem when I try to use Windows Live messenger.
Sometimes when I'm fast enough and don't give IE time to load completely it
will go to a webpage but then the "Internet Explorer has stopped working"
will pop up and shut down.
Any and all help appreciated. Thank you.
