    Internet Explorer


    I cannot launch the Internet Explorer in Windows 8. It immediatly responds with the message "Internet Explorer has stopped working."

    What to do?

    Hello Bobbe, and welcome to Eight Forums.

    It may be a bad add-on or toolbar causing an issue with IE. You might see if completely resetting IE may help.

    Hope this helps,

    Can't be launched from Metro or Desktop ?

    When you click the "e" icon, just an error message or does it launch to permit a reset as detailed by Brink ?

    Can't launch from any environment. Resetting does not help.

    In that case, you might see if turning off, OK, restart PC, turn on, OK, restart PC for Internet Explorer in Windows Features may help.

    If not, then you may need to refresh Windows 8.

    Also, recommend you check the Event Viewer in Control Panel to try to determine the cause and do research on the error code.

    Thanks for your efforts to help me, but I don't really understand your instructions. Do you want me to turn the firewall on/off, or what?

    No worries. I was referring to doing that with the listed Internet Explorer option in Windows Features.

    Had a look into theEvent Viewer, and there was a tremendous amont of error indications and warnings that I cannot iterprete. However, as far as I understood, the warnings were all connected to some maintenance actions on a databasecache, operations that had not been fully accomplished which obviously could have serious effects on the performance.
