IE Keeps crashing on launch, please help

Hi There,

I am running Windows 7 Professional x86 (Legit copy).

Everytime i open Internet Explorer, it crashes and i get that "Check online for a solution" or "Close program" menu that pops up. It is highly frustrating!!!

This is on one of my work PCs so i NEED Internet Explorer as i stream camera feeds using H.264 with it amongst other setups which will only work with IE 8 or 9. Opera, Mozilla, Chrome etc, none of them will work as i've tested.

The error i am getting from IE is as follows:
Problem signature:

Start menu, type "internet explorer", try opening the one with no add-ons. Might help narrow it down further.

I thought this was a feature?

Have you tried installing then removing the latest version?

On the camera issues, that's what you get when people don't support standards. (And people ask me why I hate IE so much)

install chrome

Hi All, thanks for the help and suggestions!

For the ones who said Mozilla and Chrome, please go read OP again ;)

Will try "No Add-Ons" shortly and see if that helps. Thanks for suggestion.

@Lament: Appreciate the post, but TBH i dont know how to create a batch file using that :(
@droplet: If all else fails, i will give this a go. Thanks!

Quick question about "No Add-Ons"...

The cameras use Active X and H.264 compression... Upon 1st run i need to tell IE to install and run those. Surely with No Add-Ons i will not be able to use those components?

@Lament: Appreciate the post, but TBH i dont know how to create a batch file using that :(
create a new text document
paste all that stuff he wrote in his post into it and save
rename the file YOURNAME.bat (the .bat is the imprtant bit)
run the file (by double-clicking)

1 - Upgrade the PC
2 - Run Chrome or Safari
Upgrade? It's an i7 Processor with 6GB RAM, 4TB HDD Space, 1GB 192bit GFX Card... Upgrading is NOT the issue here mate. How did you the miss the part where i said you cant stream the H.264 cameras via chrome or firefox etc? It has now been mentioned atleast 4 times, if not more...
Install a real browser like Chrome or Firefox and most of your problems will disappear.
Please read above... and just in general...
