An unhandled exception happens when a program violates the integrity of your system configuration and the system responds by blocking the program. Internet Explorer unhandled exceptions often occur due to corrupt add-ons, downloaded utilities such as toolbars that run in your browser, or popup blockers. If you receive an unhandled exception error frequently, disable the problem add-on to fix the problem. If that doesn't help, reset Internet Explorer to factory default settings to solve the unhandled exception errors.
