What is Iexplore.exe application error?

Asked By 220 points N/A Posted on -

I am not a computer wise and I'm dumb on computers. I just use it to surf and send out emails. But while surfing the internet, an error occurred. It stated that:

"Iexplore.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience."

Each time this happens, I would just restart my computer and would just proceed to surfing again. This message appears more frequently now a days and I am not sure if restarting the computer solves the issue or makes my computer function even worse. The error message appears.

More frequently. I tried to troubleshoot or use the HELP menu in my computer but it seems that I could not find the answer there. I think for me to really diagnose or be able to fix the problem correctly, I would need to know the root or the cause of the error. Could it be coming from my hardware or is this a virus? It's so hard if you do not know much about computers. The error message appears frequently each time I browse or surf the net.

Could the error be caused by a browser problem? I hope somehow you can make me understand the error and help me stop the error message.

Hi Ttdeguzman,

This problem occurs because one of the following browser helper objects (BHO) is installed on your computer:

– BuyersPort
– Morpheus
– Morpheus Shopping Club
– WURLD Shopping Community
Additionally, you logged on to the computer with a limited user account. The BHO tries to modify certain system files and Windows Registry entries that require administrative credentials to access. As a result, when the BHO cannot access these files and registry entries, Internet Explorer stops abruptly.
To resolve this problem, remove the BHO from your computer. For information about how to remove the BHO, contact the manufacturer of the program.

The “iexplore.exe” file or program belongs to the Microsoft Internet Explorer web browser. If restarting the computer no longer works, try updating your operating system to the latest Service Pack to update the browser. If you have Microsoft Windows XP, download Windows XP Service Pack 3. This is for 32-bit Windows XP. This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows XP.

If you have Windows Vista, download Windows Vista Service Pack 2. This is the latest and last Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows Vista. If you have Windows 7, download Windows 7 Service Pack 1. This is the latest and only Service Pack update for Microsoft Windows 7. If you have Windows 8, download Windows 8.1. This downloads the ISO file for Microsoft Windows 8.1.

Updating to the latest Service Pack also updates Microsoft Internet Explorer to the latest. If the problem continues, just use a different browser like Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Opera, or SeaMonkey.
