Internet Explorer stops working

While trying to open PFD files I keep getting a error saying that Internet Explorer has stopped working, It was working fine then all of a sudden it ins't. Is anyone else having a problem like this? Anyone know of a fix?I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling.

Hi,
Just to let you know this solution worked. Thanks for the advice!
I can't understand how this happened. I guess you have to be careful what you download from the internet as the downloads seem to come with toolbar add ons that clog up the settings on your computer. I will keep your solution to hand in case something like this happens again in the future. It's okay if you've been formally trained in computer use. I'm afraid I missed the boat with computing in school.
Thanks so much
Lorna

  • Internet explorer stops working when i download itunes

    Every time I try to download itunes, Internet explorer stops working. Help!

    I'd first try downloading an installer from the Apple website using a different web browser:
    http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/
    If you use Firefox instead of IE for the download (or vice versa), do you get a working installer?

  • Internet explorer stopped working after installing iTunes 11.1.5

    Installed new version of iTunes 11.1.5 on pc running windows 8.1 and now internet explorer has stopped working.

    I have exactly the same problem with a new acer aspire. I successfully installed Itunes but windods 8.1 explorer stopped working. I had to deinstall itunes for IE to work.
    Thinking I have a corrupt install file I tried a second time but with exactly the same result. I shure would like to hear an answer.

  • Internet Explorer stopped working when I upgraded to Parallels 6

    I am fairly capable with computers and software, so your direction to a helpful resource would be appreciated if you don't know specifically how to address my problem.
    I am new to Apple as of this past April and I am still adjusting from the PC world. However, many of my programs still need Windows and one on-line subscription requires Internet Explorer. I installed Parallels and Windows 7 on my MacBookPro.
    Internet Explorer 8 stopped working when I upgraded Parallels from Version 5 to Version 6. It gave me an error message and did not open. IE8 had worked just fine on Parallels 5. My inquiries to Parallels went unanswered. Nor could find a solution on the Parallels website or the internet, in general. I downloaded and tried to install IE9 Beta from the Microsoft website when I saw it offered when I tried to find a solution to my IE8 problem on-line (Safari still works). Now I receive an error message "Internet Explorer did not finish installing". But, I am unable to finish its installation or remove it so I can start over.
    Any ideas??

    I think your problem is specific to Windows. You would have better luck in Windows-specific sites such as this one: http://support.microsoft.com/gp/pcieintro

    Hi,
    It may be that you will need to 'reset' Internet Explorer, but you can certainly check if this issue is being caused by an add-on as follows.
    Click the Start Menu, open All Programs, open Accessories, open System Tools and click on 'Internet Explorer (No Add-ons)'.  See if Internet Explorer now runs correctly.
    Let me know.
    Regards,

  • Why my Firefox is to slow?? Same as GoogleChrome?? Only Internet Explorer is working good! And i want to know Firefox its to slow open web sites! I want to use Firefox but i do no not wht to do is to slow! help me pls!

    Srry ill explain very bad myself there! The problem is at the time the Firefox its connecting to a "X" website, it takes to much time get in on the website =/, I got the same problem with GoogleChrome! But if i use Internet Explorer all works perfectly, but I dont want it to use IE, I want Firefox ^^ and I not know wht to do, I cleaned the registry, cleaned the cache and cookies mmmm I ´ve Avira Antivirus on the computer i did a full system scan and everything looks ok also I did a scan with MalwareBytes` Anti-Malware and all its ok again, I not know wht else to do!!! I turned off the avira and firewall of the windows 7 64 bits and didnt work too. Help me what can I do?

    Hello cor-el, thanks for your reply. I changed my settings for downloads to desktop and it has appeared on there. When I double click I am asked which program I want to open file. I click firefox and another box "opening install" says I have chosen to open the file which is an application and do I want to save it. This is the only real option so I press save file. I get a box saying this is an executable file which may contain viruses - do you want to run. I press ok and the final box showing C drive file name and desktop appears stating application not found.
    This happens the same whenever I try to install.
    To my untrained eye the application is not being recognised as an application and I cannot work out how to get it to do that.
    My plugin is still showing as out of date.
    Is there anything you could suggest. Thanks for your time.

  • Firefox and internet explorer doesnt work with mac os 10.4.7

    i can't seem to get firefox and Internet explorer to work on my g4 da mac with os 10.4.7. any suggestions...

    Did they ever work for you?
    Did you recently install some new software or make a hardware change to your machine?
    The first rule of thumb with misbehaving applications is to erase the Application's preferences and then try it again, but that might be somewhat dangerous considering that you could accidentally erase all of your bookmarks/favorites in the process.
    I'm running Mac OS 10.4.7 and I can get FireFox 1.07, 1.5, and 2.0, plus IE 5.2.3 to run, in addition to other browsers like Safari 2, OmniWeb 5.5, Netscape 7.2, and Opera 8.5 and 9.

    I updated Firefox and now Realplayer can't download any videos( download button in upper right corner of video don't pop up and there is no download option if I right click) if I use Internet explorer it works fine, I also went in to make sure I had it checked to pop up it is?! So it's not just youtube for me its all videos!
    == This happened ==
    Every time Firefox opened
    == the last firefox update
    ''locking due to the age of this thread''

    haven't tried it myself but saw this earlier in a blog somewhere:
    "try retro installing FF v3.6.3",
    makes sense 'cos I've only been experiencing the same problem with mozilla & realplayer combo since updating to latest FF v3.6.4
    noted that under IE realplayer plugin still works fine, button to 'download this video' comes on as before.....
    from what I read retro install will pick up all your bookmarks etc. do no worries there
    naughty, NAUGHTY mozilla people! you were 'bombproof' until today....what happened? good luck sorting it out though!!!! I still luv you!

  • Windows APP without real internet connection stops working in time

    Windows APP without real internet connection stops working in time
    Hello all,
    I am trying to get the following to work. We have an intranet page which users need to connect to, to operate some machines. This is done through an windows 8.1 Tablet with an assigned KIOSK mode app (Kios SP Browser).
    This works great as the assigned app is the only thing the user can run and we don't have to really harden the device. One drawback in using the assigned apps is that it needs to be an New App (as Microsoft call it)
    The app is installed on an reference machine which runs in workgroup mode (no domain connection is needed on the devices) and after the reference machine is installed it is imaged with the use of Acronis. After deployment the tablet has no connection to
    internet and the intranet page is wireless put available to the tablets. As a side note, the tablet operates with local accounts and the app is installed using an corporate hotmail account we created just for this purpose.
    I now deployed the image over 20 different tablet devices and this worked great until recently a few devices start to complain it needs to connect to the windows shop before the app can be started. As the devices don't have internet access this can't be
    done and the tablet is rendered useless for the user.
    How can i make the app available without internet connection ? and how can i be sure the app will continue to work over time without connection to the store ?

    Thanks for the reply.
    I can't unblock the internet connection as the wireless network doesn't have any internet connection what so ever. The main purpose is to be able to operate the machinery and nothing else, hence the kios app which is being used to show the intranet page
    which connects than to the devices.
    The problem is that after imaging the app works as expected but after a few days the app stops to work ...
    I found the following website over site loading an app without the needed appx files. It shows an way to capture the files during installation from the windows store.
    https://www.404techsupport.com/2014/06/installing-free-windows-8-modern-apps-without-the-windows-store/
    It is a bit strange to have it this difficult to install apps without the needed store and i think that Microsoft should make this easier. I hope this works better and after a few days i will give the feedback how this handles..
    If anyone knows of a better way .....

  • After a crash and update firefox will not connect to any webpages. Internet explorer is working fine. What's going on?

    Firefox crashed. Closed all my windows - did the auto update thingy with accompanying message. Brought up the windows that had closed as usual - all said "problem loading page". Firefox will now not connect to internet. It's not a problem with my connection etc - internet explorer is working fine. Anyone else have this problem today?

    So, it's been 13 hours now and no answers. From reading the Airport Discussion board "
    Airport has a self assigned IP address, 169.254.175.198 and will not be able to connect to the internet"
    is a very common problem and I find it hard to believe Apple has not responded with a fix. I may have to take it into a Genius Bar and see what they can do but I do not have high hopes.
    You know, I was talking to someone last week and the name Apple came up. "Ah", he said, "the Evil Empire". Their success has made them much more brash than MS ever was.
