Internet Explorer "Not Responding" Fix

    Question

  • I have found that after several weeks of constant "not responding" messages while doing a search function on any of the three major search engines - when I made Google Chrome my default browser that all problems ceased.  

    But silly me...I continued to click on the "e" on my desktop to access the internet and that was going back to internet Explorer as the browser so I deleted all the "e" shortcuts from the desktop, taskbars, etc and just click on the Google icon to access the internet and all worked out perfectly.  I know that I didn't have to "delete" the "e" shortcuts but why leave clutter on the desktop if I won't be using them anymore.

  • Hi,

    Usually, it is not suggested to have multiple internet browser installed at the same time. That may cause conflict.

    For Internet Explorer "Not Responding" issue, it can be caused due to corrupt third party add-ons or temp files.

    At this point, if you would like to disable IE, there is settings from control panle->program and features->Turn Windows features on or off.

ERROR!

     

    message "micrcrap has stopped working"  No Shalzbut!  You wont fix it.  Its been around for years.

  • Sorry to inform You, but I have been running with 2 Browsers for 10 yrs, and NOW it becomes a Problem? WRONG ANSWER. This problem only started about 1 month ago for Me. IE8 DOESN'T Work properly on XP SP3, IE7 Pauses on Load up and sometimes returns with NOT RESPONDING. What did you Brainiacs do to CAUSE these Problems. It was Fine for 10 yrs and NOW it's BROKE, and You CAN'T Fix it..

  • I have the same problem.  So do others that I work with.  I remeber the day when google would open instantly.  Now I sit there for 10 seconds on a brand new machine with 8GB of RAM.  Not sure what the problem is, but disabling all addons does not help.

  • disabling all addons does not help.


    So now you will have take more severe fault isolation methods.   E.g. assume there is interference from third-party programs which do not respect the No Add-ons request and so either disable them or remove them.   In the past products from Google have fit that category.

  • Well said Robert, My network has a firewall which doesn't even allow microsoft.com. Recently microsoft update sites were allowed and right away most of the users got these "IE 6 crashes when searching in Google" issues.

    Upon checking I understood that several security updates got installed through automatic updates. We had tried removing all updates, Still issue was there.

    Upon restarting a few machines the system was asking for authentication to "Install downloaded updates", which in turn installed Internet explorer 8.

    So it really has got something to do with the security updates or patches. Please refer the below forum as well

    Thanks in advance.

  • Newer IE browsers support a feature called Search Suggestions which Google apparently calls Instant Predictions or  Google Instant  for a feature name.

    http://www.google.com/instant/

    So, if you have that enabled I suggest you turn it off.   IE6 was created long before that feature appeared.

    Kudos to Robert

  • This is old but i figured I would reply since i am finding this info in my search feed. But they are very likely correct. There is updates for the browsers. Some updates wont cause conflict some will. Just because you have had it two years and now have a problem dosnt mean a thing.
