IE - The webpage caused an error and was closed

October 2016


When typing an address into the address bar, I usually get the message "This tab has been recovered. A problem with the web page caused Internet Explorer to close and reopen this tab". Occasionally, I get the message "Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears that the website continues to have a problem".


  • Right-click on the "Internet Explorer" icon --> properties --> In "General" tab -->click on "Delete" button --> Then click on "Delete all" button --> Check the checkbox "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons" -->Click on "Yes" button --> OK.
  • If the problem still exits, try to open "Internet explorer" without add-ons.
  • Right-click on "Internet explorer" icon --> selects the option "Start without Add-ons"
