Windows: Internet Explorer has stopped working.


Every time I watched a video on a website/live news channel or a video , I get a pop window that Internet Explorer has stopped working with the message "a problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. »

I tried to solve this problem, including the resolution of problems with Adobe Flash Player or update of Adobe Flash Player

but without success. What should do?

Thank you.



Try to use the System File Checker to scan your operating system for missing/corrupt files, perform the following steps:

1. Click Start and type cmd in the box start the search.
2. in the area of results, right-click cmd.exe, and then click Run as administrator. You will be asked to type the password for an administrator account. If you are the administrator or type the administrator password, click on continue. Then click on continue.
3. at the command prompt, type Sfc/scannow, and then press ENTER.

The analysis may take some time, so be patient. Windows allows to fix corrupt or missing files it finds. If the information of the installation CD is required to fix the problem, you may be asked to insert your Windows Vista CD.

Method 1: Set Clear cached data in Internet Explorer method 2: reset the security settings for Internet Explorer method 3: run Internet Explorer in "no Add-ons" mode

    Sorry we don't communicate via this forum.

    You need a real antivirus because these are the two antispyware. You have the PCtools antivirus
    on the computer or just their toolbar in Internet Explorer?


    If there is no antivirus on the computer here is what I use and recommend (except for one
    program like Prevx, you don't want more than one antivirus on the computer program
    much less running because they interfere with each other and lower security). Each combination
    of her below you will warn of malware without toolbar from PCtools running online.

    Here's what I use and recommend: (these are alll free and very effective versions.)

    Avast and Prevx proved extremely reliable and compatible with all I have
    launched on them. Microsoft Security Essentials and Prevx have also proven to be very
    reliable and compatible. Use MSE or Avast and Prevx, Prevx 3 but not all.

    Avast Home free - stop any shields is not necessary except leaving Standard, Web, and
    Operation of the network.

    Prevx - Home - free

    Windows Firewall

    Windows Defender (is not necessary if you use MSE)

    Protected IE - mode

    IE 8 - SmartScreen filter WE (IE 7 phishing filter)

    I also IE always start with asset if filter InPrivate IE 8.
    (It may temporarily turn off with the little icon to the left of the + bottom
    right of IE)

    Two versions of Avast are available 5.x and 4.8 x

    Avast - home - free - 5.x stop shields you do not use (except files, Web, network, &)
    Shields of behavior) - double click on the icon in the Notification area - real time Orange - click on the
    Shield that you want to stop - STOP. To stop the Orange icon to show an error indicator-
    Click on the Orange icon - top right - settings - click on the status bar - uncheck shields you
    disabled - click OK

    Avast 4.8 x - home - free - stop shields, you don't need except leaving Standard, Web,.
    and the network running. (Double-click the blue icon - look OK. - upper left - Shields details
    Finish those you don't use).

    Or use Microsoft Security Essentials - free

    Prevx works well alongside MSE or Avast

    Prevx - home - free small, fast, exceptional protection CLOUD, working with other security
    programs. It is a single scanner, VERY EFFICIENT, if it finds something come back here
    or use Google to see how to remove.   <-->  <-->

    PCmag - Prevx - Editor's choice, 2817,2346862,00.asp

    Also get Malwarebytes - free - use as scanner only. If you ever think malware and that
    would be unusual with Avast and occasional Prevx running with the exception of a low level cookie
    (not much), to UPDATE and then run it as a scanner. I have a lot of scanners and they
    never find anything of note that I started to use this configuration.

    I hope this helps.

  • Internet Explore has stopped working - question of the biometric authentication service

    My Elitebook 8540p has developed a problem where I get the error message - Internet Explorer has stopped working... Turn it back on.     I am running Windows 7 32 bit.   And using IE9.

    After some internet reading, I started my services of neutralization.    I finally got down to a service that is causing the problem.

    Biometric Authentication Service Digital Persona Inc.

    When I disable the service in the services of the MSconfig System Configuration and reboot, I use internet explore without any problem.    (I've identified some Web pages which would agrivate the question.)

    The deactivation of the Service of Authenticaton of Biomitric causes the scanner to not work.     I tried to reload the driver for fingerprint reader, and the HP Protect tools Security Manager.

    Any idea how I can activate the biometric authentication Service and not IE stopped working the issue?


    I had the same problem on my HP Pavilion dv7 and had the chance of getting a solution.

    I, too, put the finger on biometric authentication as the problem Service.  By disabling the service, Internet Explorer worked well; except, now, I had no finger analysis feature.  I installed the latest version and it worked for a few sessions and then the problem comes back.

    Looking at my updates, I realized that the Flash is set to update at the same time, the problem started.  I tested by activating the biometric authentication Service.  Instead, I disabled the Flash add-on in Internet Explorer and it did not work again; except, now, I had no Flash.

    Searching online, I came across this post from Adobe:

    Post on the Adobe Forum: IE9, Windows 7 64-bit Flash causes "Internet Explorer has stopped working".

    I followed the instructions in this post, including the "clean install" and reverted to version 10.3 of Flash.

    Post on the Adobe Forum: how to return to a previous version of Flash Player?

    Now, all the features work correctly.

    I hope this helps!

  • G71-340US Internet Explorer has stopped working

    I'm a gamer and enjoy the games on a couple of different Web sites. I play Fishville on Yahoo and different kinds of games on I get errors that prevent the games & I don't know if it is my computer or something else to malfunction. Basically the error comes from Fishville. The error message is:

    Internet Explorer has stopped working (and ends page)

    An add-on defective or malicious caused Internet Explorer close this webpage.

    Windows Data Execution Prevention detected an add-on tries to use system memory incorrectly. This can be caused by a malfunction or a malicious add-on.

    I don't understand why everyone I know has no problem with this site, except me. All my friends have HP products. I received an email from me take an investigation because they pointed out that my computer stops a lot of HP. No one knows how to solve this problem or have any information about this type of problem. I really don't want to give up the game, at least I have do serious damage to my computer or am compromising my safety.


    First, reset Internet Explorer as follows: be aware that this will remove bookmarks, modules, and the saved passwords etc

    Open windows control panel, open Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, and then click the reset button.  Click 'Yes' or 'Ok' for all additional guests needed to complete the process.

    Then, download the Flash uninstall utility on the link below and save it to your desktop.

    Once the download is complete, close all browser windows and start the program uninstaller.  Once done, restart the laptop.

    Then, download and install Firefox , then using Firefox, download and install the latest version of Adobe Flash.

    Close all browser windows before you run the installer of Flash.

    Start Firefox and see if your games Ok in this browser game - if they don't, close Firefox, IE opens ( See Note below ) and click the Adobe Flash even above to get a command prompt to install the ActiveX component.  Once completed, restart IE.

    Note:  If you have a 64-bit installation, make sure that you open Internet Explorer and not Internet Explorer64) and click on the same Adobe Flash link above to get a command prompt to install the ActiveX component.  Once completed, restart IE.

    If you want to use Internet Explorer 64, install Adobe Flash for this browser using the link below.

    Looks like you may have a virus or other malware. Get your updated antivirus program and boot into Safe Mode. Note that some viruses can hide from your normal antivirus program, so you really need to scan in Safe Mode. To enter in Safe Mode when you turn on first, press F8 on every seconds until you get the menu, and then select Safe Mode. Then run a complete system scan.


    Microsoft has suggestions and offerings to


    Moderator Forum Keith has a few suggestions along this line to


    If that suits him fine. If this is not the case, use system restore to go back to an earlier date at the beginning of the problem. To run system restore, click Start-> programs-> Accessories-> System Tools-> system restore. Click on the box that says show more restore points.


    You can check the corrupted system files. Open an administrator command prompt and run SFC if the above does not help. Click START, and then type CMD in the search box, right-click on CMD. EXE and click run as administrator. Then, from the command prompt type sfc/scannow.


    Finally if all else fails, you can look at the rather cryptic system event log. To do that click on start-> Control Panel-> administration-> event viewer tools. Once in Event Viewer system log-click and scroll entries looking for these "error" with indicator see if you can find guidance on where the problem may be.


    When you get your system in good working condition, I invite you to back up your system up to an external hard drive and make it regular periodic updates.


    I hope this helps. Good luck.
