Hey everyone,

 

I have a friends PC here which will crash when opening anything in IE 11. Internet explorer is up to date so is Windows but when I run the Microsoft Fix it tool it states that Data Execution Prevention is disabled, and it alerts me that it will enable it. When it does this internet explorer will then work for a short while but then it will crash and do the same as before.

 

Any ideas?

 

Thanks,

 

Darktune

 

**EDIT**

 

After some more digging in event logger it's stating the the problem is due to a faulty module - Ntdll.dll

 

any ideas on that. I've done some research on that but it's thrown up nothing interesting or relevant.

Have you tried running System File Checker? ( sfc /scannow from an elevated command prompt )

 

Also Nvidia driver could be the culprit. You could completely re-install.

 

Good Luck

I have tried sfc, that came up with nothing.

 

Also there is no Nvidia driver currently installed so I cannot see that being the problem.

 

Java was installed the same day the computer started doing this, so maybe there is some sort of conflict?

 

Thanks!

Well, I would uninstall Java and see if the problem re-occurs. Then make sure that if you re-install make sure you have the latest version.

You might check and see if 'compatibility view' is turned off if so enable.

Hope this helps

Good Luck

I should have really started with the uninstallation of Java, I just never thought it could/would do such a thing. Lets hope it'll fix it.

 

I did check if compatibility view was off (which it was) but thanks.

 

I'll let you know what happens.

 

Thanks!
