Repairing Internet Explorer

Because the Windows operating system relies on many components of Internet Explorer, any problems with Internet Explorer can affect other areas of the system. One possible source of a problem can be an Internet Explorer add-on. Add-ons are apps that you install or "plug-in" to Internet Explorer to allow it to work with content like videos and games.

You can disable add-ons in by selecting Manage add-ons in Internet Explorer's Tools menu. In the Manage add-ons window that appears, in the left panel click on "Toolbars and Extensions", then in the right panel click on the name of an add-on. Information about the add-on will appear in the bottom panel, along with a [Disable] button.

Internet Properties dialog box

If you're getting the message "Internet Explorer Cannot Start", you can access the Manage add-ons dialog box through the "Internet Options" link in Control Panel. In the Internet Properties dialog box that appears, click on the Programs tab. Then on the Programs page, click on the [Manage add-ons] button. The Manage add-ons window described above will appear.
