    From the MSFT knowledge base: How to reset Internet Explorer settings

    Is browsing always slow in Internet Explorer? Does it frequently freeze or crash? Do you receive error messages that say Internet Explorer has "encountered a problem and has to close"? Or messages that a Visual C++ "runtime error" has occurred in Iexplore.exe?

    If this is the case, you might want to try resetting Internet Explorer. When you reset Internet Explorer settings, all add-ins and customizations are deleted. You basically start with a fresh version of Internet Explorer.

    To reset Internet Explorer: URL -- http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923737.

    Ahhh, another IE hater.

    I use IE exclusively and like it. In fact I have had issues with FF and Chrome to a point I uninstalled them. They just did not work the way I liked. Perhaps I am just accustomed to IE and it's idiosyncrasies.

    No, I wasn't, and the update to IE 10 via Windows Update began late yesterday, if I remember correctly.

    Trying to get IE 10 installed and working properly has been an exercise in futility. I have tried several ways to install it in Windows Normal Mode, but the installation always stalls out about 2/3 of the way along and finally gives me an error message stating that IE 10 did not install correctly.

    The only way I'm able to get a completed installation is in Windows Safe Mode, and then, after rebooting into normal Windows, IE 10 won't display images. Even after resetting it, as suggested by Jose, images are not displayed. Fortunately, uninstalling IE 10 reactivates IE 9.

    I've never used IE, in any version, as my primary browser, as it has always been a disappointment when compared to the almost infinitely configurable Firefox, my browser of choice. Consequently, I use it only when Firefox runs into a website that doesn't play nice with it. For that, IE 9 will suffice.

    John, did you get the 64x or 32x version? 32x is worth a shot on a 64x PC, has generally been more stable in recent years while 64x apps get over teething. Or if you got 32x, try 64x.

    Following from IE9, assume you can find same in IE10 settings. Internet Options > Advanced tab
    ...try these one at a time, Apply, OK, close browser, reopen...
    Multimedia section, is "Show Pictures" ticked? If yes, untick. Then when you reopen browser, tick it again--may just need a 'kick'.
    Multimedia section, change setting of "Enable auto image resizing"
    Accelerated Graphics section, change setting of "Use software rendering instead of hardware..."

    In software troubleshooting, it's always worth a shot as one of the 'easy things to try' to disable and reenable whatever's causing trouble. Just cos the interface says it's 'on' doesn't necessarily mean it is.

    When you install the X64 version of IE you get both the 32-bit & 64-bit versions.

    Another warning re IE10 for Win 7 final release; if you have a LAPTOP running switchable graphics there is a bug that can cause kernel based BSODs. As I understand it, if IE is locked into not using hardware acceleration you may be able to avoid the problem. I've been informed by MS that they are aware of this problem and is working on it. For now I've removed IE10 from my laptop (but kept it on a desktop I built).

    A note - I just read the latest PatchWatch - Susan actually covers this problem very nicely. My DV7 is on the 'hit' list. So maybe Windows Update won't force it on me - however, the official IE download site had no warning when I did the download, and the installer obviously didn't check to see if I had a hardware situation where IE10 wouldn't work. Hopefully MS is doing something about this pending an actual fix. So thanks Susan! And while I'm a bit annoyed that I got hit by this, it's nice to see MS openly and quickly documenting the problem.

    Same expereince as Chinook: IE10 is junk

    Sorry, but I've had the same experience as Chinook. This is a Win7/32 system and when I installed Win7 as a CLEAN install last fall, initially I upgraded IE8 to IE9 after the system had been configured and updated with all the system updates. IE9 was unstable, crashed, couldn't open many web sites (about half) that IE8, Firefox and Chrome had no problem with. So I pulled IE9 and reverted back to IE8.

    Now I've tried to upgrade to IE10 and gotten the exact same results. It is unstable and unable to render web sites that the other browsers (all updated and current) or the older IE8 render with no problems at all.

    Someone at Microsoft isn't doing their job, there's no reason IE9 or IE10 should be crashing regularly when it encounters web sites that the other browsers have no problem with. It isn't worth the trouble of installing and uninstalling it--which will of course also purge any stored passwords you have.

    "Bad dog!"

    Interesting. On the sites that I used IE10 on with a desktop system, it seemed to work quite well with Win 7 Pro 64 bit. It was on a laptop - Win 7 Home Premium 64 bit with dual Intel and ATI graphics that I had BSODs. Maybe you could tell us what sort of problems and crashes you had. In my case, MS has publicly acknowledged the problems with dual graphics but has no ETA for fixes. As to IE9, I've been using it a fairly long time now, though not as my primary browser.

    BTW, I've had equally bad problems with Chrome on my laptop AND on older desktop systems. Chrome and ATI drivers don't seem, for me at least, to live and play well with each other. On both desktops and a laptop with ATI graphics I've had TDR errors in the ATI driver, which generally lead to BSOD's. I've also had problems using Chrome with GMAIL and other web sites where I do uploads and downloads; these file activities tend to crash the browser (a fairly well documented problem). Like IE10, the only system Chrome seems to do well on is my fast desktop with NVIDIA graphics.

    I found a solution for IE10 crashing right after it's launch. The problem was with "ClearType workaround files" detoured.dll and dwrite.dll, which you have copied there at some point when using IE9. Those files are in IE program files (x86) folder. So delete those 2 files and IE10 should now work fine!

    Also, workaround for the crash was to enable software rendering (instead of hardware rendering) in IE 'Advanced settings'. But when deleting those 2 files mentioned earlier, you can now use hw-rendering again.

    Just a warning; this may help some people, but it has nothing to do with, as far as I know, the ATI switched video BSOD's that come when you do the platform update and IE 10 installation on laptops with ATI / Intel switched video. Microsoft has made it very clear that these updates are not compatible with the laptops detailed in the list with this graphics setup. It includes various Dell, HP and presumably other laptops as well. If you do these updates without new drivers and fixes from ATI, your computer vendor and MS, you will likely BSOD in a fairly nasty manner.

    Again, just a reminder that there are 2 different issues. IE10 crashing, and IE10 plus video drivers causing BSOD's. Great to have workarounds for the former, still waiting for fixes from MS and ATI/AMD on the BSOD fixes.
