I assume you mean IE has thrown up a stopped working error in Reliability Monitor and then has recovered and runs again (until the next error). Is this correct?

Assuming so, go to Control Panel, Internet Options, Advanced and do a Full Reset. Check the box that says reset personal information. Do a Full Reset. This does delete forms and passwords.

When done, go to IE, Tools, Manage Add-ins and disable most or all the add-ins. I find add-ins can cause "stopped working" errors.

Make sure Windows is completely up-to-date. Help, About should show version 11.0.14. IE reliability has improved over the most recent 30 days. I have not had any IE 11 errors in Windows 7 or Windows 8 by doing all the above.

i would also look at upgrading your nvidia drivers since that is the problem module

I guess it is related to NVDia VGA driver... download latest, and do a clean install (remove old ones, there should be a check box when you install)

I already installed the latest driver and issue continues.

John,
 I did your suggestion too. But do I need to disable All add-ons? I only disabled the currently loaded add-ons.

More info: when I come in in the AM there is about 25 of these IE errors in the task bar.

At this point, there is probably a virus or other malware on the computer.

Scan with your own Anti Virus suite and then also with Malwarebytes (malwarebytes.org).
