  • What version of IE are you running? make sure your Antivirus is up to date and not causing this.

  • Hi,

    If the issue persists you could try to capture a user mode dump of the crash which has the potential to identify the cause.

    You can configure Windows to create user-mode dumps. Create a System Restore Point first.

    If you copy and paste the following in Notepad and save as a .reg file (save with the .reg extension and give it any name such as iedump.reg), then right-click the .reg file and select "Merge" to add to the registry, a .dmp file at the time iexplore.exe crashes should be created in the C:\CrashDumps folder:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\iexplore.exe]

    After Internet Explorer (iexplore.exe) crashes, can you then make the .dmp file available (provide link) via a public folder on OneDrive or similar site?

    Here is a link on using OneDrive :

    More info on collecting user-mode dumps:

    To stop the creation of the user mode dump files run the following registry file:

    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

    [-HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\Windows Error Reporting\LocalDumps\iexplore.exe]

    You can delete the C:\CrashDumps folder anytime.
