Internet Explorer Crashes When Browsing

Hi everyone.

I know it's a shot in the dark, but a co-worker of mine keeps having his IE 11 crash when clicking links, browsing, etc. He is running Win 7 x64 SP1 on a Dell Precision M6600, current on all updates.

I have copied and pasted the event from the event log below. It's not much to go on, but I assume being able to repair system files with a windows disc might do the trick. It's a Dell laptop, so I'm having to try and locate a disc that will let me run the repair option. I tried using a Win 7 x64 SP1 disc that came with another machine, but I got an error message when trying to repair saying that it wasn't "compatible with this installation of Windows."

My solution for the time being: use Chrome ;)

I'm fairly stumped, because I haven't had this issue with IE on any other machines with a similar configuration.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

d3d9.dll is part of DirectX.  Try re-installing. You may also want to take a look at this since some programs require a specific version of DirectX:  http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/windows7/diagnosing-basic-problems-with-directx

You may also want to verify your video drivers are up to date.

I would update the flash player and java. Sometimes those can cause issues. Also i would disable hardware acceleration on the flash player as this fixed this issue for a PC i was working on one time with this same issue.

*cough cough* Switch to Chrome or Firefox *cough*

But in all seriousness, I would roll back of IE (Or a complete uninstall, be sure you have another browser in order to re-download IE), do a restart, and then upgrade back to IE 11.  I have run into this issue before where nothing resolved it short of a complete re-image of the machine.

RoloTony --
From a Command Prompt (as Administrator)  run SFC /SCANNOW

That should fix corrupt or missing files.

The Java and Flash versions were ok (though that wasn't a bad suggestion). I reinstalled DirectX and the graphics drivers. He hasn't reported any issues so far (fingers crossed).

Thanks for the help guys! I think this case is closed.
