I've been trying to install swagbucks on my husbands computer. I have it on mine and have no problem. When I download it on his I immediately (within 30 seconds) get a message " INTERNET EXPLORER HAS STOPPED WORKING. A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available". Then I uninstall in and the IE works fine. I contacted swagbucks and they said it's a browser issue and to check my internet options but it doesn't say what to check for. I would appreciate any input. Thanks

Hi Victoria -
There may be several reasons why you can't access Swagbucks, and these include your Antivirus or AntiMalware programs.
As the site has a Medium rating, some A/v or A/m programs will block the download of the Swagbucks program.

You can disable your Antivirus for a short time while trying to download, then reactivate it once it is installed.
This is another way A link to Swagbucks Facebook page if you want to go that way.

Tell us how you get on by doing either way, and we may have other links for you -

Thank You -
