Removing the add-ons in IE


To mange add ons in IE you use path via Control Panel and Internet options or in IE via Tools – Internet Options to Programs- Manage Add-ons . However, if IE always crashes before opening , there is a link to the opening IE pure without add-ons , which can be found in the Start menu – All Programs – Accessories – System Tools . In Manage Add-ons you could see, disable or unwanted add-on . The majority can be removed under Programs in the Control Panel.




Malware in IE addons

In the latest case user called me about crachsnig IE I found which Internet Explorer add-on was causing the problem and that is part of Adware, which can not have you removed from the control panel .

Obviously, an active antivirus program on PC did not detect Malware , so I used another AV program Malwarebytes , which then erase all malicious code .



In the end it turned out not to guilty upgrade of IE 11 , but was the guilty one IE add-on, but unfortunately existing antivirus program was not blocking . Never overestimate the power of malware.
