Specs: Windows 7
I am having great problems using Internet Explorer 9. When I try to open Online banking which I use regularly I get a message "IE has stopped working" and I cannot proceed. I then try to download Google Chrome from the Internet but McAfee sends a warning message. My security level is medium. Should I use a different internet browser like Firefox or Bing? What do you suggest?

If you disable your anti-virus, you should be able to install Chrome. I prefer Firefox...have for years. I only use IE when absolutely necessary. Opera is also an option. Just an FYI; Bing is a search engine; not a browser.

If you're using McAfee for antivirus I would try disabling that and then check and see if the issue with your online banking and IE disappears. If it does, then the issue was McAfee.

I've been using IE for years, and I've been doing online banking with IE for almost as many years. All without a single problem.

I've had a lot of experience with McAfee and it's frequently more trouble than it's worth. Should you find out it is McAfee, I recommend either AVG or Avast antivirus. Both are free and work well.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,

I am the captain of my soul.

✔ Best Answer
Agreed, except I would recommend running Malwarebytes in Safe Mode before disabling McAfee or uninstalling it just to make sure that your issue is not caused by an infection that slipped by McAfee.
I recommend removing McAfee and replacing it with Avast Free Version.
I recommend FireFox for everyday use.

First and foremost you need to make sure you don't have viruses or malware. Run some scans on your hard drive. Then I suggest not using IE. Try Chrome, or something Chrome based like torch browser, or opera.
