How to Fix Internet Explorer


In Five Steps…
So what exactly is the IExplore.exe error?
Iexplore.exe error is basically an error which is related to you trying to open your IE browser application. There are one of three errors that this issue may be related to.
1. The explore.exe error that you are encountering could be the result of additional programs that you have installed on your IE browse in order to improve and personalise your internet surfing experience. For example, eBay toolbar, Daemon Tools toolbar, Google toolbar or YouTube toolbar are all capable of causing your browser window to crash.
2. A Microsoft add-on, which is called ActiveX, is another reason why you may be experiencing the iexplore.exe error. To put it simply, ActiveX is a small piece of code which is inserted into Internet Explorer in order to help it to communication with various applications and tools on the various websites that you visit; this is all done by adding a small file to your system. In most cases the ActiveX will work without causing any damage to your system, most likely without you even noticing, but there are also those rare instances when it leads to anI nternet Explorer crash.
3. The last reason why you may be encountering this error is because of a bug in your installation of Internet Explorer.
What can you do to repair this error?
1. Remove Browser Toolbars
If you are using any toolbars, then they should be the very first things that you uninstall, in an attempt to rectify your problem. It’s possible for you to uninstall all of them individually, normally by just right-clicking on them and selecting remove or something similar.
2. Windows Update
Check for any free secure application updates for your operating system that may be able to repair your problem with IE; just click on Start >> All Programs >> Windows Update. Then click on the “alter settings” option and select “Automatically (recommended) download updates for my computer and install it”.
3. Windows System File Checker
(SFC) or System File Checker is an excellent program which comes built into Windows, which you can use to monitor any corruption or deleted files on your computer.
It’s not a common occurrence, but there are times when the data on your main hard disc have become corrupted or have been removed, which could have been caused by something as simple as a small power surge or black, or the running of a certain program while switching the computer off, leading to the damage on your system.
Take some time to scan your hard disc using SFC; if it finds any missing or corrupt data it will automatically replace it. In order for you to use this tool, you will have to put your Windows installation CD into your CD player. The moment you put it in, click on Start >> Run, then type SFC/ scannow and push Enter.
It should take no more than a couple of minutes to scan your entire hard disc. Once the scan has been completed, restart your system and verify whether or not the problem has been fixed.
4. Clear Your Registry
The registry is basically a databank, where all the information on your software and hardware components is stored. Over time, as you install and uninstall programs, and as you build up tendencies, running certain applications more than others, it leads to your registry becoming cluttered. A registry that is old and cluttered can lead to the IE error that you are encountering.
The best way to clear your registry is through the use of a registry cleaner tool. The tool that I personally recommend you use is SpeedyPC Pro, this is primarily because it’s rated the no. 1 registry tool in the marketplace right now, and the fact that it also has a number of additional components, such as malware removal and privacy protection, which will both more than likely come in handy for you.
