IE9 crashing constantly

I don't know what's up with IE9 lately but mine is crashing randomly on all kinds of websites. even Western digital's site it just crashed 3 times for no good reason.
as far as updates go I'm all up to date. the last update I got was for security essentials and .net stuff.

is anyone else having any issues with IE9 lately?

Windows 7 Ultimate SP1 x64

Hello serpentracer

There are several steps to fix the problem!!

1.Disable all IE9 addons
2.Reset IE9 settings
3.Scan for Maleware (Use Malwarebytes : Free anti-malware, anti-virus and spyware removal download)
4.Install all updates

If the problem is still there, take a look at the IE solution center from Microsoft.

Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

I tried the steps in the tutorial:

Troubleshooting Internet Explorer Issues

By going through the process of re-enabling addons one by one I was able to identify the offending addon - Norton Vulnerability Protection.
With that disabled IE9 works fine.

IE9 Crashing

Thank you Zirro,

I followed your advice and disabled Norton Vulnerability Protection.

With that disabled IE9 seems to be working fine with me too. I have had no crashes since.

I thought Symantec had fixed that problem.

I am now using IE10 on Windows 7.
IE10 had a problem with Free Download Manager but a new FDM version fixed it.

Computer Crashing Constantly
I am doing simple tasks and my computer keeps crashing constantly. I had to restart explorer and it stopped responding when I right-clicked on it. The HDD is only 4% fragmented and it is so slow the HDD would be 65% fragmented.

wlm crashing constantly
me and a few others on the novatech forum recently picked this one up. The WLM program seems to crash a lot, the pinned icon shows it as running, but you cannot get the buddy list up, you open task manager and it shows as not responding, happening all the time for me now :(
