    Internet explorer has stopped working....


    A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available

    This is what I keep getting popping up...but Internet Explorer carries on working so I dont understand why it keeps popping up all the time...I dont seem to have any virus or malware as I done checks so dont understand what its doing it for.

    I have tried to reset Internet Explorer which seemed to work for a very limited time but starts up again for no reason I can see..

    Anyone throw any light on this situation?

    Try starting Internet Explorer this way and see if it makes a difference.

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)

    Hi,
    Welcome to the forum.

    In the event of the above suggestion by Ardneh does not quite work, you could try this:-

    Hope this may be of some assistance.

    Dont click on any of those boxes that pop up. I will get one of our Malware experts to give further advice. Again, dont click on anything.

    It sounds like you picked up a rogue type of anti-virus. If you can see it in Task Manager, stop the process.

    Download Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware. Rename it to angie.exe before saving it to your desktop
    |MG| Malwarebytes Anti-Malware 1.50.1 Download

    * Double-click mbam-setup.exe and follow the prompts to install the program.
    * At the end, be sure a checkmark is placed next to Update Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware and Launch Malwarebytes' Anti-Malware, then click Finish.
    * If an update is found, it will download and install the latest version.
    * Once the program has loaded, select Perform full scan, then click Scan.
    * When the scan is complete, click OK, then Show Results to view the results.
    * Be sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.
    * When completed, a log will open in Notepad. Please save it to a convenient location. Copy and Paste that log into your next reply.

    Hi Jacee,
    I do already have the Malwarebytes Ant-Malware on my computer which I am running at this moment in time to see if it picks up on anything.....Because I already have it on my computer will it "if any" pick up on any recent malware attacks? Or do I need to uninstall it and reinstall it again as you have said " renaming it"
