My computer crashed immediately after opening a website in Internet Explorer. However, I can still be able to access my Broadband connectivity through PPPoE code. How will I fix it?

To fix the problem, you have to uninstall the MSN toolbar (if it exists) on Control panel> Add/Remove Programs and the Messenger application from the Windows Components.

If it didn’t solve the problem, then go to C:Program FilesInternet Explorer, now locate the iexplore.exe file, Press shift and right click on it, click on Run as, select the 2nd option and run it as administrator (if you use win XP), if you use win7 then simply right click on iexplorer.exe and Run it as an administrator.

Internet explorer will now open. Go to Tools, Manage Addons, remove the MSN toolbar and Messenger applications.)


2. Your computer may cause crash problem for corrupt registry.  Most likely your registry bloated and overstuffed with an assortment of unnecessary data. So you could clean your registry and remove all the useless material.

3. Your computer might have virus and malware problem. So download an antivirus program with the latest update definition and do a full scan for virus. Remove all viruses and malware found on your computer.


Your problem should be solved if you do the following things. If you still have not managed to solve the problem, do a clean setup and before opening any hard drives, install a antivirus software and scan everything.

If your computer suddenly crashed after opening a website on Windows Internet Explorer, try opening the same website on Windows Internet Explorer the next time you start the computer to validate the cause of the problem. If the computer crashed again, try opening a different website on Windows Internet Explorer on the next restart. If the computer still crashes even after opening a different website, try updating Windows Internet Explorer to the latest version supported by your operating system.

If you are using Microsoft Windows XP, you can update to Windows Internet Explorer 8 but your operating system should be running on Service Pack 3. To update to Service Pack 3, download and install Windows XP SP3 Network Installation Package. If you are using Windows Vista or Windows 7, you can update to Windows Internet Explorer 9. For Windows Vista, you should be running Service Pack 2.

To update to Service Pack 2, download and install Windows Vista SP2 (KB948465). If your operating system has become unstable or it displays and behaves very differently than before, try running SFC to fix any damaged system files. Click Start, Run, type without quotes “cmd” then hit Enter. In the command prompt, type without quotes “sfc /scannow” then hit Enter. When you are prompted, insert your Windows setup CD on the CD/DVD drive and then continue.
