Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.
I have a problem that's causing my web pages to intermittently shut down.

As aggravating as that problem is the pop up "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem........" box is even more aggravating.

It seems that years ago I found a way to stop that pop up box, but I can't find how to do it again.
Anyone know?

I'm using Win XP.

M2C, don't take this wrong, but IE is a problem. Actually, it's full of problems both real and potential. I can't help with the problem outside of advising you to look into a better, faster, and more secure alternative (Firefox, Opera, etc.).

Good luck.

m2. can the webpage run with firefox? There are a few websites that only work with IE, in which case i will use IE for that particular page..but for everything else...it's firefox. With firefox gaining market share and acceptablilty...people are making their web pages firefox friendly.

check it out man. i was a big hater of firefox forwhile...now i would never go back to IE.

Good Luck!

M2.....

Exactly what's been said so far.
I am happy with Firefox.
Only IE when certain web pages don't work well with FF.
Example Photobucket, web hosting site for photos, gifs etc.

"the pop up"

I'll ask our systems engineer and our man of many talents pc tech when they come in. Me, I don't know.

Don't you love the folks who think you've never heard of Firefox or some other browser and preach it like it's the word from the burning bush? :)

To disable script debugging, start IE - On the Tools menu, select Internet Options - then the Advanced tab, under the Browsing section, click to select the Disable script debugging (Internet Explorer) check box and the Disable script debugging (Other) check box if it is present - Click OK, and then restart your computer.

Thanks for the info and advice guys, I appreciate it.

Foxfire.
I tried it maybe three years ago. I don't remember exactly the troubles I had but there were a lot. It looked slick and I thought I was going to like it but it was a disaster. Possibly it would work fine for me now but I'd better stick with what's been doing, up to now, a good job.

This would be a deal breaker. I'm big into Photobucket.

Can FF be installed along with IE, so that either one could be used, or is that a bad idea. I wouldn't mind trying FF again but not if it interferes with what I'm doing now.

"Disable script debugging "
That's what I was hunting for.
Way back I found and disabled it but I couldn't remember how.
Sometimes when just moving within GT, like this morning, I'd get the warning and the page would shut down.
Thanks for the help.
I'll see if I still have a problem.

I use Firefox exclusively and I also use photobucket on a daily basis and I have NEVER had a problem.

Saying you cant use photobucket with firefox is not true.


There is a big difference between firefox 3 years ago and today.

You really should try it again.

So far so good. I've only been on GT and Photobucket for about four hours but neither page has shut down on me once.:)

Before disabling script debugging this morning, both GT and Photoshop shut down twice in a few minutes.



Never being one to leave well enough alone, maybe I'll try Foxfire on one of my "backup" computers.

You can install and use FF on your primary computer, it will not interfere with IE ... when you do try FF be sure to check out the addons especially noscript.

I recommend FireFox also, but chances are it is a add-on/extension in the browser that is causing the problem.

My problem is back.

Even with both script Debuging boxes checked I'm getting "Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and........." again and IE shuts down.

I've been kicked off GT three times in twenty minutes this morning. FF is looking better.
Any suggestions where to get it?

I wondered about that also.
I run Norton and Skybot to see if they pick up anything but nothing.

Try loading IE without the activex add-ons. I found that my perfectly stable IE went bonkers after loading the coupon surfer activex utility to print coupons on my lasers. Once I removed that particular activex add-on, my ie went back to it's normally stable self.

What are activex add-ons and how do I get rid of them?
Even though I've been into computers for years I'm technically pretty ignorant.

I used IE for so many years without trouble, I figured that something recently had been added/installed that was screwing up IE but didn't know what or where to get rid of it.
