Hi all, I was having a problem with Internet explorer, she stopped opening altogether. I tried all the tricks suggested by Windows but it was impossible to remove or uninstall or reinstall regardless of what method I used so I eventually found myself using this fix.
I tried Toms method first—then the one above it Pulsars. I tried the Default first as suggested—then the Aggressive. After the Default I noticed that Windows explorer had started playing up, the windows opened in a succession of Tiles, a simple search would result in endless pages.
After the Aggressive attempt I lost the Desktop completely. Opening in Safe mode saw the desktop load and all my files seemed intact. System restore seem to continually fail. The opening welcome window opens fine but I get an empty blue screen with an active Pointer & ‘Probe 2.exe—Abnormal program termination ‘warning instead of the Desktop loading.
I purchased Reimage from this site but it too has failed to restore the desktop and I am navigating via the Task Manager. It does seem to have restored Internet explorer however.
Any Ideas or suggestions please Folks?? Cheers
(I am using another computer to send this although the above machines Internet works fine)
