Can't run Internet Explorer 11
Posted on 2014-02-21
I have tried several times to update from IE9 to IE10 or 11 and every time when I run it I get:
Internet Explorer has stopped working with the 'close program' button. Then I get the 'Windows is checking for a solution...' then the sorry can't find anything with another 'close program' button. I'm then in a loop that con only be stopped with Task Manager.
There I see one instance of iexplore.exe and another of iexplore.exe *32. When I stop the latter its gone.
I would love to kiss goodby to IE altogether but there are certain sites that require it so I'm stuck with it. Unfortunately some of those sites now need later than IE9.
I have installed it using Windows updates and by downloading the install from MS. I am running Windows 7 Pro x64.
I have tried running iexplore.exe from both the 'Program Files' and 'Program Files (x86)' locations but the result is identical with the above.
Anyone got any ideas?
