Windows 7: IE8 Stops responding/working

I don't get any BSOD. I only get the "Internet Explorer has stopped working" and it shuts and trys to restart the page and usually wants to send info to Microsoft or look for a solution. Although there never seem to be any solutions sent my why from Microsoft. I was able to put in an exception for DEP on IE8, but I had to head off to work and wasnt able to surf and test that but I will tomorrow. The DEP does seem to have worked with Googles Chrome. That is running fine without errors and I tried to make it crash. Multiple tabs, viewing flash videos and such. No errors on that one yet. Thanks again...

Only way I found it was after many gray hairs. My DEP was broken so I had to re-install. I would still be curious as to why IE is still puking (wonder if it has something to do with "private" browsing sessions.

How do you re-install DEP? Also I didnt see anyway in Windows 7 to uninstall IE8? I think you can disable it, but not totally uninstall. Is that correct?

ie8 windows 7 32 bit stops working

hi, not a techie, just a housewife but i had same problem 1 month after i got my samsung n150.
tried all, downloaded all fixes i could find, nothing helped, would not connect.

finally i tried this and it worked...

went to my guest account. hmmm...its working fine here. so i went to program files, ie, right clicked, selected send to email recipient and sent the whole ie file...listed as DEBUG... to myself.

then i switched back to my administrator account, loged into my aol mail thru aol 9.5, downloaded the file, saved it to my desktop.

Then i opened the file, found the file called iexplore, opened it and wham bam my ie8 is runnin like a scalded dog.

havent got a clue why, last ditch effort that worked after many sleepless nights ...

Hope it works for you.

Sounds like you're talking about the Start Menu shortcut which should point to: "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe".

To check the problem with your start menu shortcut just compare the target field in the right-click properties of the shortcut file with the good version that you emailed from the guest account. If you edit it to match the good shortcut that should fix it. You could also delete the bad one and replace it with the good one.

start menu ie8 shortcut

Thanks I will try that... as I found to my chagrin, the next morning when I powered up ad logged into Windows, i had to repeat the aforementioned procedure to fire up ie8.

Maybe your suggestion will provide a more permanent fix . I will post my results soon as I try it.
thank you again,
Kim
