Re: IE7 starts frequently crashing
Problems can result when add-ons you have installed, such as browser
toolbars, are damaged or conflict with Internet Explorer.
Run Internet Explorer 7 in 'No Add-Ons' mode:
If you have Vista: Start > type Internet Explorer in the Start Search
box > click Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)
If you have XP: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)
Alternatively, you can create a shortcut on your desktop with the
following target path:
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff
If the problem does not occur in 'No Add-Ons' mode, then it's being
caused by one of the add-ons that you have installed. We can show you
how to identify which add-on is causing the problem.
