Internet Explorer 9 Crashing on Websites

Oops something happen!!

Are you running into problems with internet explorer 9 crashing on you intermittently.  Well you’re not going to believe this one.

Most likely you are suffering from invalid font installed on your machine.  Not every site will crash, but the sites that use Helvetica font as the default font type in their stylesheet will cause Internet Explorer 9 to lock up.  Hopefully they fix this in a windows update.

Here is the simple fix:

Navigate to your control panel, then select Appearance and Personalization

Select Fonts

Locate Helvetica, then delete it.

Then restart Internet explorer.  Ensure you close all instances to make sure the fix takes affect.

Done! 🙂
