How to Repair the “Internet Explorer has stopped working” Problem

Sometimes Internet Explorer just crashes. There is no obvious reason, and Windows just tells you that Internet Explorer no longer works. It says it’s “looking for a solution,” but no matter how long you wait, nothing happens.

Surprisingly, this is a fairly common problem. While this problem is quite frustrating, it’s usually not hard to solve.

What causes the “Internet Explorer has stopped working” issue?

  • As with many Windows problems, the problem is usually that programs can’t access certain library files called DLLs (Dynamic Link Libraries). They allow programs to communicate with each other, exchange data, and function properly. However, if these files are damaged or lost, applications will not work.
  • The error can also be caused by corrupted cache files and incompatible plug-ins.
  • It can also be caused by a third-party “.dll” file conflicting with iexplore.exe.
  • Another reason could be that Internet Explorer is loaded with many unwanted toolbars, BHOs, add-ons, and extensions. Certain security settings in Internet Explorer can also cause this problem.
