Avant Browser has stopped working

Post by rods » Sat Aug 22, 2015 9:45 am

I am using Ultimate version 2015 build 27. About two weeks ago I started to get an error message "Avant Browser has stopped working" giving me the option to close the program or search Windows for a solution. I have chosen the latter and all is well for a while but the problem persists. I have tied to go back to Build 17 but this has not solved the problem so I am back with Build 27. Can anyone help me please? I am running Windows 7 Professional.

Did you install any extension/application before the problem appears?

Sorry - My hasty reply!!!! I've checked the add-ons and nothing is listed uner Avant. There are severl listed under IE but none ticked. I know however, that I am using a password logon system (can't know remember which one). But I have been using this for years. I can't think of anything else.

I've been having problems, too. I've added nothing to the browser. It's just been slowly increasing in crashes until now it crashes every time I open it. It's actually in a crash the right now but I was able to open this tab.

Can Avant still work after you closing the error message?

Yes, providing, obviously, that I opt for "look for Windows solution" rather than "close Avant".

Mind you it is over a week now since I saw the message!!!!! Very strange.

Sometimes I can open new tabs, sometimes not, sometimes the program shuts down completely worth the error message. I will try to post the error messages in each different case. I have no extensions of any kind loaded. It seems to revolve around the amount of scripting in the page I'm viewing, particularly the flash player, but also heavy JavaScript such as interactive slide shows. Pages heavily weighted with these things seem to bring it on.

Looks like the crash is being caused by the trident engine.

The crash problem may happen on any site? is there any site can reproduce the problem?

Pretty much any site. I've noticed it happens more often on heavier sites, more scripting, flash, videos, etc.. Usually with about five tabs open at least. I've tried disabling flash animations, that didn't do it. I have no plugins of any kind, latest version of IE, chrome, fire fox, windows seven ultimate 64 bit. It's not a showstopper, and usually only happens about four or five times a day.
