    internet explorer shuts down

    Why when I am on the net internet explorer shuts down and restarts? I don't
    think I have any viruses. It just shut down not often but if it running
    without me doing anything it restarts. I have a E521 Dell if this helps 2
    gigs of ram 320 gigs of hd space. thanks for the help.

    Hi wjk310,

    Have you installed any IE7 addons or activeX items right before this started? If yes, then you might try disabling them one by one to see which one is the culprit from the Control Panel (Classic View) > Internet Options > Programs tab > Manage add-ons button.

    - go to control panel>internet options> advanced tab> click reset.
    - uninstall the internet explorer
    - reinstall it (i think it automatically installs after restarting)
    - use another browser like firefox or opera.

    Hi,

    1. You may have an incompatible browser add-on.
    See: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp
    for troubleshooting information.

    2. Try the Reset button in Internet Options> Advanced. Note that this will
    delete stored (autocomplete) passwords. Do you have those recorded
    elsewhere? (Many users don't.)

    If resetting IE settings helps, you may still have to re-enable browser
    add-ons individually to see if the troublesome one can be found.
    See: http://www.enhanceie.com/ie/troubleshoot.asp

    3. This may be a malware problem- adware, spyware, hijacker, trojan, etc.
