Is browsing always slow in Internet Explorer? Does it frequently stop responding (hang), or stop working (crash)? Do you receive error messages that indicate that Internet Explorer has "encountered a problem and needs to close"? Or that a Visual C++ "runtime error" has occurred in Iexplore.exe?
If so, then you might want to try resetting Internet Explorer. When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ons and customizations are deleted, and you basically start with a fresh version of Internet Explorer. This article helps you reset Internet Explorer.
To have us reset Internet Explorer for you, go to the "Reset Internet Explorer for me" section. If you would rather reset Internet Explorer yourself, see how to do it in the "Show me how to do it" section or go to the "Let me reset Internet Explorer myself" section.
