Windows 7: internet explorer not responding

internet explorer not responding

so recently, windows internet explorer has been not responding and needing to be restarted. It keeps saying it shut down unexpectedly. This happened numerous times as I was looking at images on google, as i click on "view image as full size". What can I do to make this stop? I have firefox and actually prefer it, but i dont want there to be any problems now or down the road

Ok so first obvious question, if you prefer FF, why don't you just use that?

Secondly, I would run a good virus scan program and this to rule out viruses and spyware.

Thirdly, there is a raft of reasons for that error message and consequent shutdown and it is pretty hard to diagnose without going through a lot of methods. Hopefully there are other members who can offer solutions. A quick google does come up with a number of things you can try

i do use FF for the most part, but if i were to use IE i dont want any problems.

I have AVG, i thought that covered maleware but i may be wrong

I'll try to look for a solution for my specific error then. it mostly happens if a tab isnt fully loaded and i click it, or when i try to open a pic on google or something
