Internet Explorer is the most popular web browser with more than 40% market share. But It is known for its low performance. After few days of usage, condition goes worse and it frequently starts freezing and crashing. 

Most of the time it freezes and shows error saying “encountered a problem and has to close.” Sometimes it also shows Visual C++ “runtime error” warning message.

Most of the time, virus and other malicious programs are responsible for this unresponsive behaviour of Internet Explorer. Virus modify settings of browser which make it work different and unresponsive.
