Windows 7: Ghost in the machine

Ghost in the machine

I rather like Ghostery's Tracker Control function and have just downloaded and installed the most recent version for IE 11. Unfortunately, whenever I close my browser I get an "Internet Explorer has stopped working' flag; does anyone know how to eradicate this glitch?

I don't use IE, but it appears that the problem you report has been around for quite a while.
For example:
IE11 Desktop frequently crashing on Facebook, HuffPo - Microsoft Community

Solution was to uninstall Ghostery IE.
But they do have a web page and even a support link.

Let us know how it goes....

This is the second time this year I have attempted to use it; earlier-on I had a different problem and attempted to contact them but got no reply. I had hoped they would have fixed the glitch or at least started answering their requests for help but it is not to be. Are there any working tracker controls available for IE11?

It's much easier to use Superaintispyware

Thank-you Mr Thrash; I've activated the IE protection. Superaintispyware is a complete package, so I would be removing a lot of stuff I already have running right?

Ghost in the machine
Hi Folks. My periodical (Active PC) recommended Ghostery as a way of blocking trackers and it worked very well up until last week when suddenly it kept closing IE11. I removed it and downloaded the newest version but the same problem occurred. I contacted them but they ignored me. Anybody have any...

Ghost in the Machine... Self Reboots
Well, it has been happening more often than I would like to admit. All of a sudden my computer is at idle, it goes to screen-saver when all of a sudden, I see it restarting all on its own, no warnings, no BSODs, nothing. The electricity did not flickered, the UPS didn't make a sound or anything...
