Windows 7: IE11 error, many popular pages cause freezing, constantly restarts,

09 Aug 2016   #1

Windows 7 Professional x64
IE11 error, many popular pages cause freezing, constantly restarts,

Dell Precision 7510 16G Ram
Windows 7 x64
IE 11
IE11 cookies set to manually accept or block, 90% are blocked
Avast antivirus pro service paid
Malwarebytes pro service paid
Acrobat Flash set to manually allow for every start request

Issue: MOST IE11 pages cause a freeze at some point, and IE tab needs to be restarted or page reloaded. Most times the reload goes on longer before freezing, sometimes not. . .

Sample event

Faulting application name: iexplore.exe, version: 11.0.9600.18377, time stamp: 0x575b1122
Faulting module name: unknown, version:, time stamp: 0x00000000
Exception code: 0xc000041d
Fault offset: 0x000000001496d780
Faulting process id: 0x5f4
Faulting application start time: 0x01d1f22b19f70e82
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Faulting module path: unknown
Report Id: dc68d02b-5e28-11e6-82d4-847beb3931ff

any suggestions for a joyful browsing experience?

all MS hotfix / security updates are applied, except windows 10 spam, except today, which is patch Tuesday I believe
All hardware drivers are up to date,
sfc /scannow run with 1 constant issue: isub3mon constant corruption, though not at the last run
CCleaner run, registry cleaned,

whew, any other questions I can answer to help point me in a joyful direction?

>Disclaimer: I do not use IE unless I am forced to do so on certain web pages.

So, until someone more expert at interpreting error codes comes along...

Perhaps try resetting IE?

Or perhaps try repairing/reinstalling IE?

Also, you wrote:
registry cleaned
That *might* possibly be (in)directly contributing to your problem.
Even MS says that "registry cleaners" are unhelpful and can cause more damage than they fix.
A number of related references may be found HERE and HERE.

Thanks for the suggestions. I also use Chrome and Brave, but IE does give me the option to block cookies, which is the primary reason for using it, plus some need to use Silverlight applications. . I read the registry cleaner posts, and I have "cleaned" a pc which would barely work with both CCleaner and Defragmentation, but to benchmark which was most responsible, didn't think to do that! so point taken!

I will reinstall IE11 but I have the same issue on the homebuilt tower which has had certain issues in the past, and most were OS / APP software issues, not my hardware or settings. . . and were eventually fixed with OS updates. . . but given MS and its desire for Win10 and all its Trojan properties, I hate Microsoft software at times. . .

Uninstalled IE11 x64, then went to reinstall IE11 x64, and IE11 x64 won't install either manually or with Windows update.

Error link goes to a non existent web page. . .

any suggestions now? HELP!

I have a Dell laptop and a home built gigabyte tower, both machines are software identical and having the same IE11 issue. The tower was the one which I tried to reinstall IE11 but failed. Had a restore point from a couple hours earlier and restored IE11. BUT, now the laptop IE11 issue has completely disappeared this morning or so far this morning! no changes in this laptop at all, as I used it for reference while tweaking the tower. . .

I have no idea what changed or if anything has changed. . . but I still hate Microsoft's business practices. .

thanks for reading and helping
