IE stops working when I click MS links!

So I'm not sure why, but for at least the last few weeks when I click on a link here

associated with Microsoft it will immediately give me the IE has stopped working,

checking for a solution, then close program windows...

All of these in the reliability monitor are from clicking MS links,

Is anyone else getting this? Any ideas why only on MS links?

Thanks.

Have you tried resetting IE?

Tools > Internet Options > Advanced Tab > Reset

Or maybe it's a virus

Thanks G1LLY,

Yes I have reset IE, and scans come up clean.

This only happens when I click on a microsoft link in a post here in the forum.

I've used this tool a couple of times too,

Can you right click the IE entry there in the reliability monitor, and see if it gives you a View Technical Details option. Click that and post what that says. Might give the faulty module. Or check in Event Viewer under Windows logs - Application.

It looks like it's WOT.dll

Same thing in event viewer,

I'd get rid of WOT if it was me. But that's your call.

You're welcome.

If you don't want to get rid of it you can try uninstalling completely, cleaning temps, etc and reinstalling it. But that may do nothing.

I just got rid of it and tried a couple links, no problems!

I'll just do without it, I don't surf recklessly anyway. Thanks again.

I'll call this solved.
