This is a discussion on IE7 exits instantly within the Windows XP Support forums, part of the Tech Support Forum category. When I try to open the internet using ie7 it exits within 1sec. I can see the home page appear
I deleted a load of music files and some games to free up some space. I have tried system restore anumber of times but no luck. The computer is a laptop that my son uses mainly for games. Could it be somekind of virus as he never scans the computer (he's only 7). I ran a scan now and found there was some spyware.
Not much telling . . when you get into IE, click on Tools . . manage addons and disable them all. See if it behaves differently. You might install IE8 and see how it works ( aftere disableing all addins )
The web page flashes up then goes before I have time to do anything. If open IE without add ins then the page is completely blank and there are no options to to anything. If I try to do a search in the google box at the top right hand side then the page exits instantly and a bleep is heard.
I have tried opening IE again and this time it just freezes and it says 'not responding' in the top left corner and on taskbar.
