Windows 7: IE8 issues...

IE8 issues...

Hello all,
Windows 7 is going great so far but after a few hours of use IE8 quit working. When executing IE it flickers for a sec like its going to open then closes. There is not a process running for it either. I can't figure out how to fix it. I couldn't find an install for IE8 that I could try reinstalling with. I keep getting "Internet Explorer 8 is not supported on this system etc." There is not a vista or Windows 7 install on the MS site... Anyone had this issue? It was working fine at first... No application errors or clues in the Event Viewer either. Any help appreciated, thanks!

there was nothing in the event viewer???

not even the confirmation that the app started??

if not there might be a bigger problem with the OS....

have you tried downloading process explorer??

it would be in the software section labeled free great programs for win 7

keep it open when you open IE...

does it open and close???

Hello Alpha404,

You might see if resetting IE8 may help fix it.

Internet Explorer - Reset

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Thanks for the advice but it appears that to apply this fix I would be able to have to get into IE8. I'm not able to even get the application to execute. Thanks for your reply though!

Alpha02,

You can use step 2 to go through the Control Panel to open Internet Options to do this.

I see the iexplore.exe process begin in process explorer but it only lasts as the application flickers for a second which I mentioned it does as if it's going to open and then terminates. In XP you can launch IE in a safe mode which disables all browser add-ons. Can you do that in Windows 7? I wasn't able to locate that executable if so... Ideas?

open start menu and type internet explorer....

the no addons is basically the safe mode you are looking for...

Well that looked like it was going to work but IE still crashed. Process terminated and no event in Event Viewer. Geez.

Is there a switch to start IE in safe mode via run command?
ie. iexplorer.exe -noaddon
...or something like that.
