  • IE Crashes when downloading

    Hi all

    For a week now my home pc crashes whenever i do save target as in IE. Ive tried uninstalling IE7 but IE6 does the same. Then i reinstalled IE7 and it does the same. The download box hangs and then i have to close IE before i can browse again... any ideas? Tried google but nothing... cheers!

    Any logs in Event viewer?

    Does it crash on every link you have tried, or just certain sites?

      I'll take a stab in the dark... have you tried disabling your AV to see if it works then? Have you tried from Firefox?

        You could also try adding a download manager and see if it fixes the prob. I use Free Download Manager all the time because it's restartable and multi-threaded and it doesn't pester you with ads. Not saying it'll fix your "underlying" problem but it could get you out of the current situation.
        Cheers,

          @simonsays: It happens on every site i try - not checked event log... but will do

          @JeremyW: Yes firefox works but the other half doesn't like it. She uses IE . Not tried disabling AV but will do.

          @rvalstar: Im willing to give a download manager a try. Please can you recommend one? Thanks.

                I have the same problem on one of my home XP boxes. I've tried all sorts and searched for ages to try and fix it but alass nothing worked. Well apart from installing download software. Its been like this since SP1 and its a pain. I would be interested to know if you find more info on this one
