Internet Explorer - not working

#1
I have taken the plunge and upgraded to Vista, my emails works fine, but
when I want to use internet explorer it says 'Internet Explorer has stopped
working' A problem caused the programme to stop working correctly. Windows
will close the programme and notify uou if a solution is found.

Please can anyone help me out here, can I reinstall internet explorer, can I
find out the cause?

Thank you for any help.

This seems to happen occasionally to most users. How often are you
experiencing this? For me, I have this happen 1-2 times every 3-4 days.
Annoying, but then I have 5-6 windows with 3-8 tabs open most of the time.

What happens if you disable your Add Ons in IE.

If it works then enable each AddOn one at a time until you find the culprit.

You also might want to repost this to the IE7 newsgroup for a more comprehensive answer.

I have only just installed Vista, o was first itme of using internet
explorer, I dont even get a window to open.

I have tried a few things, and have decided to take it to a techi to sort,
as it will be quicker to get it back up and running again, I also have no
sound and can't get aero to work.

I know of three causes for the vast majority of such problems:
1. Incompatible add-ons: What if you right click the IE icon on the desktop
and choose Start Without Add-ons?
Or go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
Explorer (No Add-ons).

2. Tools | Internet Options | Advanced
Scroll to the bottom and click Reset Internet Explorer Settings. See
How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES):

3. Malware already installed on the computer: Help with malware

So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
owe it to the author. See also:

Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
of.
