IE 9 Crashes on MSN

Symptom:

You open IE 9 and go to http://msn.com   IE 9 crashes with the "Internet Explorer Stopped Working" dialog box.

Root Cause:

I do not know. I am suspecting that it is the Flash player.

Fix:


  • Try manually re-installing the latest version of Adobe Flash player. In my case this has corrected the issue.
  • If going to MSN is only your goal, MSN works perfectly fine with Firefox or any other non-Microsoft web browsers.
  • If you have to use the IE for testing and debugging and such, you can go to Internet Options on the control panel and make the home page to Blank.
