Ms Office And Internet Explorer Crash After Upgrade

Microsoft office and internet explorer crash after upgrade to windows 7 premium 64 bits. I bought my pc in october just before windows 7 was released. It came with vista premium 64 bit and a voucher to get windows 7 as soon as it was released.

I did get my copy of windows 7 via the retailer and did the upgrade (i would have preferred a clean install but apparently that was not possible). After that the system is microsoft unfriendly. All other applications work without problem but all microsoft stuff just crashes.

- Internet explorer crashes if you try to open any internet shortcut. You can only open a blank
Page and then type in a url. If you click on any url shortcut anywhere else, it craps out. Whenever i reenable ie (windows features) then it re(installs) [we all know it is there all the time], win restarts for the update to the system and as soon as i open ie. It says "internet explorer stopped working" followed by "windows is looking for a solution (that never finds)" and after than the only alternative is to debug or close. Ie is totally useless on my system. Firefox on the other hand still works like a charm.

- Office applications such as excel and word crash if you click on any microsoft office document
  Shortcut. You can only open a blank document and then use the file dialog to open a document.

- Outlook crashes after the wizard.

All in all, the entire microsoft suite has gone to craps. I have uninstalled ie, i repaired office, i removed and reinstalled office but the problems continue.

Reinstalling win7 and reconfiguring my system will take at least a couple of weeks and i need it to do my work. All other applications (third party) work without a glitch, all microsoft applications are crashing. Besides if i reinstall win7 i will have to go through the hassle of reactivating kaspersky without loosing my 3rd license as well as flight simulator x which was also activated.

And no, it is not my antivirus (kaspersky 2010).

Security Updates Stop Internet Explorer From Connecting To Internet

All ie7 security updates i install (cumulative or not) cause ie7 to not be able to connect to the internet. I have to uninstall the security update in order to connect to the internet. I have windows vista 64, ie7 and cable internet. I have checked for virus's several time using microsoft security essentials and malwarebytes antivirus and it always comes back clean. I am also running windows firewall and have put internet explorer on the exception list as well as turned it off to see if that was causing it from connecting and it did nothing. Can someone please tell me how to fix this.

Two Internet Explorer

I have a hp pavilion notebook pc. I was running vista home premium. I had a "free upgrade" when windows 7 was released. I followed the install (update not clean install) instructions for windows 7 and everything showed successful. My problem is i have 2 internet explorers. 1st- "internet explorer (64-bit)", 2nd is listed as program(x86) internet explorer. My computer is running a 64-bit system. This happened when i upgraded to windows 7. I thought (x86) runs with 32-bit system. How do i correct this? Problem installing other software.

Which Version Of Internet Explorer Am I Using?

How can you determine which version internet explorer you are using? I have been using version 7 but recently downloaded version 8. However, i keep getting messages on my yahoo web page saying that i am still viewing the browser with an old version of ie. I still have the old icons for ie on my desktop and on my start menu. No matter which one i use, i get the same message. When i look at my uninstall/install software listing, it does indicate that ie8 has been installed. Why i getting the message from the browser?

Internet Explorer 8 Memory Leak

So, a couple days ago, i installed internet explorer 8. I was sick of ie7 sucking so much memory up, nearly 1. 5 gigabytes of ram. But i was wrong that upgrading would help. Whenever i start up ie8, it takes up about 50, 000 kilobytes of memory, not so bad. 30 minutes and 15 web-pages later, internet explorer is up to 400, 000, which isn't that bad, right? Nope. 45 minutes later, internet explorer is slowing down, and using a whooping 1. 43 million kilobytes, nearly 3/4 of my entire ram. 1 minute later, ie8 stops working all together.

My first suspicions lead me to believe that add-ons* were causing this madness, so i deleted and uninstalled all of them. Didn't work. Deleted all the temporary files. No beef. I searched the web for answers, but i found none. The problem is so annoying i've been using my old sony vaio, instead of my vista.

Internet Explorer Stopped Working

I can not use my facebook any longer. If i use gmail (googlemail), i can see only inbox. I can not even forward emails or reply emails. Once i try to reply my emails or sign in facebook, the pop-up blocker appears and says "internet explorer has stopped working! A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. Windows will close the program and notify you if a solution is available. " I didn't do any changes to my computer aside from installing some dictionaries cd and copy and paste some fonts files and powerpoint files from my memory stick to the desktop. I tried to change the internet settings, but it was still useless.

Only Internet Explorer 64-bit Works

Only internet explorer 64 bit works. I've searched everything. And no answers. I believe it a driver thing but i know others have experienced this issue.google chrome won't work nor will firefox, nor will ie 32 bit. Multiple reboots. Total scan, don't have norton, installed nod 32 and uninstalled it, did the winscock things as admin, all the other suggestions too. Problems with adobe flash downloads. Etc. Yes, i've done everything and tried everything and still no fix! Why is none from microsoft giving an answer.

It happened before about 2 months ago to me and i roll backed to a date. Then it worked. Then re-installed all windows update. All was working fine then google chrome stopped working. Just like that 3 days ago. I tried to restore/rollback to that same date and nothing. Then went through all the updates again and a million other things. I don't want a work around. I want a fix! Can anyone suggest the boot method so both 32 & 64 bit drivers work properly? It's very frustrating. It's a new hp computer running windows 7 64-bit and windows essentials as my antivirus.

Internet Explorer 8 Crashes Constantly

I am very, very frustrated with my new windows 7 ultimate os(4 gb ram) because, ie ver 8, crashes constantly. I tried firefox on the pc and it crashes also. Therefore, it is something in the os versus the browser. It works just fine on my win. Xp pc. I am trying to use christiancourses.com and when i go to one of the free discussion threads, it crashes - every time.

Vista Games Explorer

My games explorer on vista home premium 32 bit loads up slow. I open it up and it takes between 30 seconds to a minute before it loads in. In this time the laptop seems to hang till it loads. Does anyone know why or how to fix? I think it's a problem other people have had looking around the net on forums but no solutions i have found as yet. Once opened up subsequent openings tend to respond quickly until the next re-boot! Although it can recur in the same boot session if i do quite a bit of stuff such as play a few games and then try and relaunch the games explorer. Can't understand why it's so slow to open. It wasn't always like this!

I had the same issue on another computer running vista so it seems to be common.

X86 File - Internet Explorer 8 Will Not Work

I have recently bought windows 7 and installed it and i have ran into a few problems. First my system is a 64-bit system and i have x86-files.

1) here is my main problem internet explorer 8 will not work when it is started from the x86 file. However, if i start internet explorer from my x64 file it will work correctly.

2) i have no idea how to uninstall the x86 file of internet explorer 8 so that i can reinstall it. When ever i attempt to uninstall it tells me that trusted installer is stopping me.

More information. I have other programs saved on x84 files and they work fine example: microsoft office, adobe, etc. So i'm wondering if there is not a problem with the internet explorer 8 file.

Here is my question how can i uninstall the x84 file of internet explorer so that i can reinstall it.

I found out some more information. I found out how to turn ie8 but i still dont know how to uninstall the program here is the website that showed me how to turn it off: www.Digitaltech.co. Cc/504/how-to-uninstallremove-internet-explorer-8-from-windows-7-build-7048/

Internet Explorer Does Not Work After Automatic Update

Windows xp with sp3 is downloading the updates for kb972270 and kb955759. They seem to install fine, but when i reboot and go into ie, i immediately get a windows error. (Sorry, did not get the error code. ) After removing both thru the control panel, add/remove programs, ie works fine. But xp will immediately download the updates again. Another xp with sp3 is working fine. Don't know if it has anything to do with it, but according to the add/remove program list, it appears that kb955759 was installed first and then kb972270. With the other pc, kb972270 appears first in the list.

No problems with any other programs, just ie.

Flash Player Causes Internet Explorer And Firefox To Freeze

Every time i open chess titans my computer blue screens hard drives running through ide disappear. When flash drive plugged in adobe flash player causes both internet explorer and firefox to freeze. Windows 7 professional 64bit, p5w dh-deluxe motherboard q6600 2. 4 ghz processor 2 gb g. Skill 800mhz memory, geforce 8800 gts video card, 10, 000 rpm hard drive, ultra 1, 600watt power supply w/ 117 amps on 12v rail ect. All windows updates and newest drivers on everything.

I have multiple possibly unrelated problems. First, every time i open chess titans my computer blue screens (doesn't actually show the blue screen) just flips off and back on. I am running the minimum amount of ram for windows 7 x64 but i will play hard core games fine. I uninstalled and reinstalled the program. Second, i have 2 hard drives running through ide (non raid) they work fine until i plug in my flash drive then they disappear i can't even find them under disk management.

My flash drive is formatted in ntfs and is 64gb so possibly windows in recognizing it as a hdd. Finally, adobe flash player causes both internet explorer and firefox (whichever one has the page open) to freeze when loading certain web pages eg. Pandora.com  some pages work fine like adobe (it says flash player was successfully installed) but most pages do not. Any ideas?

Internet Explorer 64-bit Missing From All Programs List

How do i restore internet explorer (64 bit ) to the "all programs" list? I dragged internet explorer ( 64 bit) from the "all programs" list to the desktop. Then, by accident i deleted that shortcut which went to the recycle bin which i actually emptied after. When i clicked on the start menu and the "all programs" list again the link to internet explorer (64 bit ) was missing to my dismay. Is there anyway i can get internet explorer ( 64 bit ) to show again on the "all programs" list? Windows 7 home premium

Upgrade From Vista

I just ran the windows 7 upgrade advisor beta and it says this : you can do an in-place upgrade to the 32 bit windows 7 home premium or ultimate. If you choose to upgrade to a different edition you will need to preform a clean installation. Does this mean i could not do a in-place install to windows 7 professional 32-bit ? And why cant i ? Is there anyway i can? I would like to find a way since my school is part of the msdnaa and windows 7 professional is available for free to me as a student. Please don't be to technical in any replies, i am only a little above an average computer user.

Upgrade From Vista Getting Stuck At 87%

Windows 7 home premium (x32) upgrade from vista hp (x32) is consistently getting stuck at 87% in the "gathering files, settings, and programs" stage. The compatibility tool indicates no conflicts. I've uninstalled virus protection, tv tonic, itunes, and logitech quickcam (as previously indicated by the compatibility tester. ) It does say i should download an updated realtek rtl8187 wireless driver to install *after* win 7 is installed.

I've left it running up to 14 hours, stops at the same place (87%) every time. (Though the file count is different everytime, so the actual absolute number varies. (e.g. This time it's 503490 of 592438. ) C:windowssetupact. Log hasn't been written to since the install first began, and indicates no errors. Setuperr. Log is empty. Any ideas?

Vista To Win7 Upgrade

Last year i purchased a pc with vista home premium 64-bit installed by the manufacturer, no os disk included in the box. I want to upgrade to windows 7 professional 64-bit. I am looking to purchase an oem copy from a local retailer. It doesn't seem financially necessary for me to pay $70 more for the cardboard, plastic and extra paper that retail version includes. I do understand that an oem copy can only be installed on one pc, however, this is not a concern to me. My only concern is if i can successfully install the oem software onto my system.

Free Upgrade From Vista

I bought a new dell laptop with vista installation disks with the promise from dell.com that i get a free upgrade to windows 7 when it was released. Now that windows 7 is released i would like to upgrade because my desktop program keeps breaking and my 3 month computer is being slowed to a crawl which is completely unacceptable . Theres so much clutter on the website that id sit here ours trying to find the upgrade link. So please if someone could go about explaining where this link is, i would be very much appreciated since i really don't have to go on dell.com and chew them out on their lies.

The whole reason why i didn't decide to pay the extra $150 to go to my favorite os, windows xp, is because of the hope to going to windows 7. The computer is the new studio 1555 so dont try to tell me that it was not out when the windows 7 free upgrade from vista was being incorporated into new laptops.

Vista Refusing To Upgrade

I just spent 28 hours downloading my student copy of windows 7 from microsoft it's not cheating (i'm also getting a dvd version in the mail in a couple of weeks but couldn't wait)

Now when it comes to installing, it will not let me upgrade from vista home premium to windows 7, despite the fact that the upgrade advisor said i can upgrade. It gave me the option but then said i cannot and need to do a clean installation.

I don't understand? I cannot do a clean installation either until my dvd arrives and would prefer  to do the upgrade instead.

Windows vista home premium cannot be upgraded to windows 7 professional. You can choose to install a new copy of windows 7 professional instead, but this is different from an upgrade, and does not keep your files, settings, and programs. You’ll need to reinstall any programs using the original installation discs or files. To save your files before installing windows, back them up to an external location such as a cd, dvd, or external hard drive. To install a new copy of windows 7 professional, click the back button in the upper left-hand corner, and select "custom (advanced)".
