How to Reset Internet Explorer

Is your Internet Explorer crashing all the time? The browser may have become unstable from too many add-ons causing the program to freeze. IE has a reset option available but should only be used as a last resort to fix major problems. By resetting the browser, IE removes any and all favorites and add-ons previously installed.

To reset IE:
1. Go to Tools » Internet Options.

2. Click on the Advanced Tab.

3. Under Reset Internet Explorer settings, click Reset.

From this point, you can start rebuilding your customized settings by adding Favorites and Add-ons.

To create a Favorite, select Favorites » Add to Favorites.

For IE Add-on options, go Microsoft’s Add-on Gallery to download. Be cautions of re-installing the same add-ons that were installed previously — it may result in your browser becoming unstable again.
