Windows 7: IE stops responding - Help

13 Dec 2010   #11

Windows 7 Professional 64 bit

1. Add the following registry value:
Key: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\MAIN
Value: TabProcGrowth
Data: 0

2. Close any and all open Internet Explorer windows, and wait 60 seconds for any lingering iexplore.exe processes to close (this is the default close timeout for IE). Then, open a new Internet Explorer window and browse away.

3. The next time IE hangs, go to the Task Manager (start > taskmgr) and click the "Processes" tab. Right-click the iexplore.exe instance in the process list, and select "Create dump file". This will create a dump file (usually named iexplore.dmp or some variant on that name) in %temp%.

If you do manage to create a dump file of IE, please zip or rar it and then upload it and link to it so we can download and analyze for you.
Hmmm I don't know how to add keys. I'll search to find out how. Thank you.
