Specs: Windows 7
I keep getting a message that my internet explorer has stopped working and I have to click on close program. Then it says it is searching for a solution to the problem, can't find one, then says windows will advise me when there is a solution. Why is this and what is happening?

✔ Best Answer
The cause could be any one of a dozen things - malware, errors in Windows, hardware problem etc etc.

Best thing to do is to download & install Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox and use them instead of IE.

If IE won't work long enough to let you download anything, ask a friend to download Firefox for you and put it on a pen drive so you can install it on your PC.

What version of IE are you using? Did you try upgrading to the latest one?
Try resetting IE and see if that works.

did you try resetting IE like I mentioned in response #2?

Yes you can use any browser to be your default.

Why did you set Response #1 as the best answer? It shows that your post is solved so other helpers won't notice it is still unsolved....
