    I would like to know one thing if you Can you open the Action Center then go to the taskbar -> Maintenance -> View reliability history -> View all problem reports. Then right-click on a few of the "internet extensions for win32" "stopped working" errors and view the technical details. Post this detail in your further replies.

    It seems as your system is affected by a virus or a malicious program. Hence i would recommend you to download a freely available antivirus install this antivirus on your system and then scan the system using this antivirus. Delete or heal all the threats detecte by the antivirus. I hope that this will fix your problem.

    This type of issue are mainly caused due to the add-on or third party extension which are loaded automatically on your Internet browser. Since the internet browser is unable to work with the add-ons and also with the newly installed extensions which ultimately result in the errors which you are getting. So uninstalling these add-on and the extension will solve this issue.

    Sometimes such issues are caused because of the spyware/malware present in your system. That's why it is recommended to install an updated version of an antivirus and then run this antivirus on your system. Remove all the threats detected by the antivirus. After the removal of all the antiviruses your system will work normally.
