    Hello Everyone,

    After wandering on the google high-lane for a few days i've decided to try my chances here in hopes of an answer.

    My situation:
    I have a set top box that boots into internet explorer as a shell. If you kill internet explorer it will immediately reboot. I use this to have internet on my TV, since I have no open internet feature on my PC and sometimes a laptop just does not cut it. What i get from time to time are the infamous:
    "Internet explorer has stopped working"
    > Check online for a solution and restart the program
    > Restart the program

    The reason as to why i get this error is known to me but i am not looking to resolve the issue.
    What i want is simple, if internet explorer stops working, dont show me the error just restart.
    Or even better kill yourself and let my shell reboot you.

    After a lot of searching (and most of it goes about fixing the problem, which does not really interest me, as this is known to me.) i have not found a single clue if this is even possible. I tried installing a watchdog, but sadly most of the watchdogs just monitor the process list, if the watched process dies, the watchdog will restart it. So that is also not the answer to my problem.

    I was not sure if posting it here is the right thread or if i have sound have posted on the OS board.
    Guess that depends on the answer as well, if i can fix this using internet explorer options or OS options.

    I really hope someone can help me out!
    Looking forward to some replies.

    Thanks in Advance!
