How to resolve 'res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#' error (Internet Explorer stopped working while viewing a website)

While testing a website I was developing, I got an error message saying "Internet Explorer has stopped working". This is followed by this line added before the URL: res://ieframe.dll/acr_error.htm#.

I was using Internet Explorer 11 in Windows 7 64-bit machine.

I tried disabling all add-ons in IE but that did not resolve the issue.

I've found this solution to my problem:
  • From Tools menu, open "Internet options".
  • Go to the Advanced tab.
  • Under "Accelerated graphics", tick the box that says "Use software rendering instead of GPU rendering".
  • Click Apply and Ok.
  • Test your website. You might need to restart your computer if it does not immediately show any effect.
This worked for me.
