If IE keeps locking up, or getting an error message that says it’s not responding (in which case you have to go to Task Manager, force it to close, and re-open it), try this fix:

1) Start > Run > regedit

2) Browse down the following directory structure:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\explorer\BrowserHelper Objects

(Open the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE “folder,” then under that the Software “folder,” on down…)

3) Delete all keys under the last directory

(Again, they look like folders, with various numbers and letters)

4) Reboot the system

Just double click a blank space on the open window or the desktop & in about 10 seconds it will respond.

Learn to use Google Search.  :busy:

Make full system images to restore to if your computer goes bonkers.

One should always create a backup of the registry before any editing of
the registry is done!
