Your questions answered: IE7 crashes when a window is closed
I received this email today:
"I use Vista. Each time I close an I.E. window I get a message that IE has stopped working and, eventually IE restarts when I want it closed, Can you help?"
If I were a betting person I'd put my money on an add-on - most likely a toolbar.
You have two options - run IE7 in no add-ons mode, or use RIES (Reset Internet Explorer Settings).
Information about RIES is here:
If you decide to be more hands on and diagnose exactly what is going on, and try no add-ons mode, use the instructions below to troubleshoot the cause of your issue.
If the problem goes away when using no add-ons mode, then you know your culprit is an add-on. From that point it is a matter of trial and error to track down what is causing a problem.
