Windows 7: Internet Explorer 8 Bug

Internet Explorer 8 Bug

When running Internet Explorer 8 and you open a new tab it randomly crashes and the usual error options come up asking to send info to Microsoft, close program or debug the program.

It's a real pain but does it happen to anyone else?

Same happens to me. I found a fix thought google, but it only works during THAT session, the next time you start OS same problem. I switch to FireFox for now.

In addition to what Dinesh said, try selectively disabling your IE add-ons until the problem no longer occurs. Iexplore is a bit like a "container" process - on most people's machines there are non-default modules (of varying code quality) running in there.

SFC /SCANNOW wouldn't go astray either, just in case one of the IE modules is itself corrupted.

Not exactly off-topic, but certainly divergent -

For many builds, IE8 will frequently prompt me to setup my preferences. As many times as I have seen the screen, I should be able to describe it better, but... I can't.

I just click Ask Me Later and continue to use my previously selected prefs.

Here is the fix I spoke of in my ealier reply.

To resolve this issue, re-register the DLL files that are related to Internet Explorer. To do this, follow these steps:

1. Click Start, and then click Run

2. Type regsvr32 urlmon.dll in the Open box, and then click OK.

3. Click OK when you receive the following message:

■DllRegisterServer in urlmon.dll succeeded
4. Repeat steps 1 through 3 for the rest of the DLL files by replacing the regsvr32 urlmon.dll command in the Open box with the following commands:

■regsvr32 actxprxy.dll
■regsvr32 shdocvw.dll
■regsvr32 mshtml.dll
■regsvr32 browseui.dll
■regsvr32 jscript.dll
■regsvr32 vbscript.dll
■regsvr32 oleaut32.dll
Now your IE8 Open in New Window/Tab feature, should work simply fine. __________________

I've had that as well. I can only hope there will be an update to fix this on the 22nd.
