    Internet Explorer has stopped working


    Every hour or two I get a message "Internet Explorer has stopped working. A problem caused the program to stop working. The program will be closed down". Except that it does not close down, just locks up.

    It seems to happen when I close down tabs. Sometimes IE can recover from this if I end task it. But sometimes I have to reboot the computer.

    This is the desktop version of IE. No extra Add Ons except Norton items and Flash.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

    Hello Vince,

    You might see if completely resetting IE10 may help.

    Hi Shawn,

    I reset IE as you suggested, I've been running it for a few days, it seems to be good now.

    Thanks for the help.
