"Internet Explorer has stopped working" error message
« on: January 27, 2013, 07:01:01 PM »
I recently started getting an error message when I open Internet Explorer.
after some research i tried disabling different add-ons and found that Avast add-on "avast! WebRep" v7.0.1474.765 is causing the error.
The odd part is that another user on the same system with the same add-on does not cause the error.
Anyone know why or how to correct this?

Windows XP: Click Start> Control Panel> Add or Remove programs> avast> repair
 
Windows Vista / Windows 7: Click Start> Control Panel> Programs> Programs and Features> avast> repair

every word is like a seed thrown to the ground of the heart.it is for the Christian, with much love,
care for this plant, the fruit will come. come

Does this happen each time you use IE and each time someone else uses IE?
There might be something else going on.

What OS? Any other security software you have now or ever had and, if uninstalled how was it uninstalled?
Dell Inspiron, Win7x64 SP1, Pentium Dual-Core T4500, 6 GB Ram, Avast Free v2015.10.2.2214, Comodo Firewall 5.12 w/D+, MalwareBytes Premium 2.0, MCShield, Super Anti-Spyware Free, SpywareBlaster, OpenDNS Premium, Keyscrambler Personal, Ghostery. CCleaner, Greenshot, Firefox (latest build), Google Chrome (latest build) and, various browser security tools.

When you do something, do it with a purpose and do it on purpose.
