Iexplore.exe is the Microsoft Web Explorer file. Basically, iexplore.exe is used to access the Internet when users enter an URL in the handle bar. The location is displayed on the consumer’s screen when the appropriate page is found.
You might come across the next error message when utilizing the Internet Explorer software:
“Iexplore.exe has encountered an issue and must close. We are sorry for the inconvenience.”

Cause of the Error:

This error usually generates when you have one of many following Browser Assist Objects (BHO) added to your Web Explorer:
1. BuyersPort
2. Morpheus
3. Morpheus Buying Club
4. WURLD Shopping Group
You usually experience this error when you’re logged on to the PC with a unauthorized user account. BHOs attempt to entry system files and Windows registry entries and modify them. Since a restricted user account has restricted rights, the BHO is unable to make these changes. This causes your Internet Explorer to crash and produce the error message.
