    Hey

    I dont know what's happening to my laptop.. it wont let me open up the interenet server. It says:

    Internet Explorer has closed this webpage to help protect your computer

    A malfunctioning or malicious add-on has caused Internet Explorer to close this webpage.
    and then closes.

    Any quick tips to get it working again?

    I have Microsoft security essentials and have scanned it.

    At the top it says
    Interent explorer is currently running with add -ons disabled... click here to manage or remove your add ons.
    I dont know which to remove?:confused:

    And then below that it also says:

    All Internet Explorer add-ons, such as ActiveX controls or toolbars, are turned off. Some webpages might not display correctly.
    To continue to your home page, click the Home button.
    To browse using add-ons, close Internet Explorer and then start it again.

    This is what it says: i dont know what to do about it.

    Add-ons, also known as ActiveX controls, browser extensions, browser helper objects or toolbars, can improve your experience on a website by enabling content such as high-quality animations. However, some add-ons can also malfunction or display content that you don’t want, such as pop-up ads.

    When an add-on, such as a toolbar, is installed on your computer, it becomes part of your browser and operating system. In some cases these programs might contain spyware. In the worst case, a malfunctioning add-on might affect the performance of your computer or cause problems accessing the Internet.

    Thanks..i've read it.. and thats the same message im getting, but i dont know if i should do it or not?

    Goto Internet Explorer -> Tools -> Internet Options -> Advanced -> Scroll down to Security -> Uncheck “Enable memory protection to help mitigate online attacks*”

    Close all browser windows and restart the browser. The issue should have been fixed
    Ive not had this problem before... anyone else?:confused:

    Just give it a try. You've got Microsoft Security Essentials installed anyways, so there's no harm in trying. It's not like unchecking that box and you'll be more prone to attacking, I don't believe so.

    Assuming that you've not yet fixed this, go to your start menu and in the "Search programs and files" box at the bottom, type in "iexplore -extoff" (without the quotes). Does that allow IE to load correctly? This command should run IE in "safe mode", with all add-ons temporarily disabled.


    I have to agree with this though:

    Switching to Chrome is definitely a good way to go! :p:
