    Internet explorer keeps closing

    Hello,

    Everytime I search something in Internet Explorer on Google. As I'm typing it will suddenly close Internet Explorer, can anyone help?

    I am using RM CC3 and it's on IE6+7. I have already done the usual checks, searching for spyware and viruses. We have the latest updates of virus scanners.

    It happens on newly built machines.

    Kind Regards,

    Miles

    Stuck Ctrl key and your search involves the letter "W"?

    I would suggest installing IE8 or re-installing the version currently installed. If you search for this issue in google most suggestions are to re-install.

    Sorry that was a bit stupid of me to say about searching for it in google, obviously this is an issue!

    Try testing this stuck key theory by unplugging the keyboard and using the on screen keyboard.

    Does the same occur if you use another search engine?

    Are you searching from the the built-in search box or navigating to google and then searching?

    What do the proxy logs say when it happens?

    Do you have any forensics software running on the machine (screen grabbing etc)?

    If you turn off all accelerators / addons in IE8, does it still do it?

    Is there any overzealous software restrictions / content / executable checking turned on in RM?*

    If you remove the RM components and take it off the domain, does it still happen?


    *never used it.
