    IE stops working!!

    After upgrading to Windows 8, the I.E. went to hiding, so I retrieved and pin it to task bar. Now, after I open it, it closes right away when I try to go onto a bookmark. The error message says "Internet explorer has stopped working" A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available".
    Does anyone anyone know what's going on?

    IE stops working when opening first window!!

    Exactly - and this started when my Laptop -after a Google search - accessed a DELL support page.

    The Google/DELL support page became the Homepage for not only IE but also for CHROME which also failed on start-up. ( so I have been surviving using OPERA )

    Registry editing of the Homepage has now fixed the problem for CHROME , but IE keeps crashing short after startup.
    As Opera was the only working browser it was set as default and hence the IE Metro version was disabled. I have now set IE as default, and now IE Metro starts up but that has given minimal improvement.
    It takes a little longer before IE Metro crashes, and IE Metro for unexplained reasons displays an IE7-WEB welcome page ?? just before it crashes - in fact I had to repeat the start of IE twice before I managed to make the screen-shot.

    Any hint as to what is going on here ?
