Microsoft Internet Explorer/stopped


hi..i have ie 7 and have started getting messages that say internet explorer has stopped working. how can i fix that so the messages stop? thank you!!

Hi James,

The problem you might be facing is either due to some third party add-on or browser extension or spyware. I would suggest following steps:

1. Open Internet explorer>Tools>Internet Options>Advanced and Browsing, untick "Enable Third Party Browser Extensions".

2. Close Internet explorer and launch it again to test if you are still facing this issue.

Also, I would recommend to scan your computer with spyware removal software like Spybot or Malwarebytes.You can download a free copy from the website.

In case this does not resolve your issue, please let me know.
