Glad to hear it.
If changing that setting helped, then it means there is a third-party
browser extension that was causing the problem.
The reason it works now is because you have disabled these extensions,
so ALL add-ons (like flash and java) won't work.
I would recommend looking for the specific extension that was causing
the problem and disabling it, while allowing the rest of your add-ins
to be enabled.
You can do this using the manage add-ons screen:
- In IE, click tools -> manage add-ons -> disable or enable add-ons
- In the drop-down box, select Show add-ons that have been used by
- Look for any add-on that is published by someone that you don't
recognize or that looks suspicious, click on it, and click Disable at
the bottom of the screen
Once you have disabled suspicious add-ons, close all Internet Explorer
windows, go back into Internet Settings and check the box that you
unchecked previously, and open a new Internet Explorer.
If Internet Explorer still runs, then you have disabled the guilty
add-on, while allowing your good add-ons to work.
If it crashes, then the guilty add-on is still enabled: uncheck the
checkbox in Internet Options (using the instructions from my previous
post) and try disabling more add-ons.
This could be a time-consuming process, but it will eventually
identify the guilty add-on and allow you to run your internet explorer
