Q: “Internet Explorer has stopped working…” It happens all the time, although my tab is always recovered it’s a nuisance. Please tell me what to do to fix it!

    Most commonly this is caused by an Internet Explorer plugin you have installed.

    You can see if this is the problem with your IE by going to the START menu and clicking RUN. Type “iexplore -extoff” and then click OK. See if you still have the same issues, if not, you’ll need to find the bad add-on.

    Go to Tools–>Manage Add-ons and scroll through them. Don’t bother disabling anything from Microsoft in there. Look for anything that is marked corrupt or doesn’t have publisher information and disable it. Close IE completely and try to open it normally. Repeat this process, disabling add-ons until you hit on the one that is giving you trouble.
