Internet Explorer 9 crashes

Hi rc06

IE9 might crash even if you have toomany addons to it.
Please refer to the following methods to troubleshoot the IE crash issue.

1. Reset IE9.

2. Perform Clean Boot and disable security software to test the issue.

3. Disable Accelerated graphics
IE9 supports Full hardware acceleration for text, graphics, and video to provide a rich web experience. By default, hardware acceleration (GPU rendering) is enabled in IE9 to offer next-generation experiences with GPU-powered HTML5 graphics. However, it sometimes will cause IE crash.

To disable it, go Internet options -> Advanced tab -> select Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering.

If the issue occurs again, please check Application Log in Event Viewer.
You may also uninstall IE9 and use IE8 if you are comfortable using IE8. You will find more details about it at the below link:

Please reply to the post if you have any further queries.
Thanks & Regards

Just A Thought... Tried A Different Browser?

Yes, I understand you want to get IE 9 working and resetting it to it's default configuration is a good step toward doing so, but many prefer other browsers as a backup..

Free browsers such as Firefox, SeaMonkey, Opera, etc. are easy to try and you may just find you like them better than the Microsoft version for normal web surfing.

Just and example:

Hope this helps.

Sorry for delay reply, I recommend you should first un-install and re-install your Internet explorer, even after if you couldn't get it fix then must format your PC once and then try it.
