Windows 7: An add-on failed to run

26 Mar 2013   #1

Windows 7 Professional 64bit
An add-on failed to run

On some sites I get a pop-up that says "an add-on failed to load" or something like that. Is there anyway to tell which add-on IE is talking about?

If you have the Command bar in your page view/ Right click above the browser bar and click on Command bar,
Click on Tools/ Toolbars/ Disable add-ons,
There might be a listing of problem add-ons.

Nope, just what add-ons are there. It doesn't list any problems.

Even the listed add-ons will show how long it takes them to activate,
Did you notice the timing ?
Open Event viewer/ applications and services and internet explorer see what it shows.
