Internet Explorer 9 Restarting RRS feed

  • Question

  • I switched to IE9 from IE8 and all day it does not matter which site I go to, it restarts and tells me that it has encountered a problem and has restarted.  I tried to just reinstall the IE8 but it tells me at the end that is detects a previous version.  I have all my favorites and links in my favorite bar and I do not want to loose it all. 

    So it there a way to fix the IE9 or to get the IE8 back to I have to unistall the IE9 and install the IE8 and then to my favorite links all over again?

    Thank You

  • Hi,

    Regarding the IE favorites, you can find them by clicking “Start”, type Favorites in the Search bar and press Enter.

    According to the IE issue, please try the following:

    1. Please refer to this: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/pc_ie_intro

    2. You can run Internet Explorer (No Add-ons) to troubleshoot the issue.


        1. Open Start Menu, then click all programs, select Accessories, open the  system tools;

        2. Right-click Internet Explorer(No Add-ons), run as Administrator.

    3. Reset Internet Explorer settings and see how it works.

    4. Test issue in Clean Boot mode and Safe Mode

    Hope this helps.
