Windows 7: Your last browser session closed unexpectly.

18 Apr 2014   #1

Widows 7 home premium 64 bit
Your last browser session closed unexpectly.

Every time I try to put an URL in the address bar, I get Internet Explorer stopped working window.
Then when I restart IE, it goes to my home page and works OK within the web site. As soon I try to type anything in the address bar, it does the same thing.
At the bottom it then has a narrow window stating Your last browsing session closed unexpectedly and a restore session button. I have no problem accessing other web sites from my "favored" list.
Also, some photos do not show in IE 10 whereas they do in Google Chrome.
Things I have done so far:
ran malwarebytes, S&D spybot, super anti spyware, reset IE 10, downloaded IE 11, went to restore before problem stated, but it stated that restore did not work.

See what this does,
Use No Add-ons mode/ Click the Start button and type in the search box,
Internet explorer

Click on the suggestion (No Add-ons) or itís located at,
Start/ All programs/ Accessories folder/ System tools folder/ No add-ons.
If using ie10 the first link will apply to ie9 as well,

Activate EPM if on a 64 bit version of windows,
Add the Run box to the Start menu list,
Open the Run command and Paste this into it and Okay,
"C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

Widows 7 home premium 64 bit

Hi ThrashZone,
Thanks for getting so quick with a reply.
I did get as far to shut down the add ons, but I restarted the PC thinking that it needed to be done to take effect and I got a BOD. At the moment I am replying from our other PC while my PC is doing the start up repair.
I think that I have now the IE 11, but there does not seem to be an easy way to find out which version (IE 10 or IE 11) I have. All it says it is IE 64 bit.

Wow do you mean BSOD = Blue screen of death ?
Try Safe mode with networking,
Shut down your machine, Unplug-Hold the power button down for 30/45 seconds (Power Drain)
Power up and Tap the F8 key continuously until you see a black page with white text,
Use the down arrow key to toggle to safe mode with networking/ hit the enter key.
Login as usual
Other advanced methods,

When you get into Safe mode with networking waste no time,
Run these scanners,
Review Jaceeís instructions to run Adwcleaner here post #7,
Ignore the title of the thread,
Instant Savings App
Screen shot of the download button to use for Adwcleaner

Manually Update them before running full scans,
Try not to use your computer while the scans are running, (one at a time of course).
Uncheck the box to Activate the Free trial from the final install options,
This one is the longest up to 4 hours, the others are only about 45 minutes,

Rerun the scanners starting normally post both scan results use the Text attachment option,
See the links above my signature picture on how if you need too,

The startup repair is still running, it can not be cancelled unless I use the hard shut down. Should I do that?
I did run the first two scanners this morning and no problems were found. Once I get the PC function again I shall do the MS security scanner.

Okay yea let it run,
Use Adwcleaner at least Microsoft security scanner is not near as good,

Exactly what sent you to bsod land ?
Not No add-ons mode ?
Not enabling EPM ?
Please give details,
You might post screen shots of your Show all add-ons page/ Toolbars and extensions,

Widows 7 home premium 64 bit

the start-up repair took more than three hours and my PC is now in working order except for the problem with IE I don't know if it is 10 or the 11 version.
The BSOD occurred after I disabled the add-ons and did a re-start because I thought it needed that in order to take effect.
I clicked on print screen key, and the pc shut this web page and went to my home page.
What does EPM stand for? I am technically challenged and have a hard time following the instructions.
I shall post this reply first before I attempt another screen shot of the tool bars and add-ons. Then I'll run the Adwcleaner.

The same thing happened with taking a screen shot. The screen flickered a bit, went to my home page and the "Your last browsing session closed unexpectedly and a restore " showed at the bottom of the page.
I shall now get to the Adwcleaner and run it. Thanks for your help so far.
