One of the most common complaints among Internet Explorer version 10 users is its continual crashing. One minute you will be happily browsing the Internet, and the next you will receive a message stating, “Internet Explorer has stopped working and needs to close.” If this scenario sounds all too familiar, here are some tips and tricks that may just help you solve this problem.
