Tips For Solving Problems With Internet Explorer

If you can open Internet Explorer but can't get to sites on the Internet, or you find that web browsing is very slow, you should first make sure that you have a good connection to the Internet.

Windows provides a built-in troubleshooter that can automatically find and fix some common problems with Internet Explorer.
Open the Internet Explorer Performance troubleshooter by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button, and then clicking Control Panel. In the search box, type troubleshooter, and then click Troubleshooting. Click View all, and then click Internet Explorer Performance.
If your Internet connection is good and you tried the troubleshooter, but Internet Explorer is still having problems, try the following:
  • Disable all add-ons
  • Reset Internet Explorer settings
  • Run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
  • Update Internet Explorer
Disable all add-ons
Web browser add-ons add features (for example, extra toolbars, animated mouse pointers, stock tickers, and pop-up ad blockers) to your web browser. While browser add-ons can enhance your online experience, they can occasionally interfere or conflict with other software on your computer. Try starting Internet Explorer without add-ons to see if the problem goes away. Here's how:
Click the Start button Picture of the Start button, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).
If disabling all add-ons solves the problem, you might want to use Manage Add-ons to disable all add-ons and then turn on add-ons only as you need them. This will allow you to figure out which add-on is causing the problem.
To open Manage Add-ons
Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button.
1. In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Tools button, and then click Manage Add-ons. 
Reset Internet Explorer settings
If disabling add-ons doesn't solve the problem, try resetting Internet Explorer back to its default settings. This removes all changes that have been made to Internet Explorer since it was installed, but it doesn't delete your favorites or feeds.
  1. Close all Internet Explorer or Windows Explorer windows.
  2. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.
  3. Click the Tools button, and then click Internet Options.
  4. Click the Advanced tab, and then click Reset.
  5. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
  6. When you are done, click Close, and then click OK.
  7. Close Internet Explorer and reopen it for the changes to take effect.
Run the Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool
Malicious software and viruses can often cause Internet Explorer to slow down or stop working.

If you are able to access the Internet, go to the Microsoft website to download the Malicious Software Removal Tool, which you can use to check your computer for viruses and malicious software.

Update Internet Explorer
Running Windows Update can often correct problems by replacing out-of-date files and fixing vulnerabilities.
1. Open Internet Explorer by clicking the Start button Picture of the Start button. In the search box, type Internet Explorer, and then, in the list of results, click Internet Explorer.
2. Click the Safety button, and then click Windows Update.
3. Follow the instructions on the Windows Update page.
Note: If you can't open Internet Explorer or if it opens briefly and then closes, the problem might be caused by low memory, or corrupted or missing system files. Restart your computer to clear the memory and then open Internet Explorer by itself.
