I have a problem with my sister's computer, which used to be mine like 5 years ago.
DualCore Intel Pentium E2140, 1600 MHz, Gigabyte P4M900. 2,5 GB ram DDR2.
I had screen resolution problems with a new monitor last year and a BIOS update fixed it right way, so it's updated.
Fresh install of Windows 7 Ultimate x64, 4 days ago.
As soon as I open IE 10 it crashes right away, no matter if the home page is set up or it's blank. And it will reopen and crash again in an endless loop until I close it.
I read somewhere that it might be a problem with memory, and I kinda suspected that because I had some BSODs back then with WinXP. I ran Memtest86+ for 16 hours, 14 passes, and no errors were found.
I even tried using just one of the memory modules (one is 2gb and other 512mb), and swapping the slots. Same error.
I'm guessing some hardware issue or driver
conflict? I really don't know.
This is the same exact system I installed in my mom's PC 2 weeks ago and also mine like a year ago and we have the same apps and it's alright.
My sister's PC barely has apps installed, just avast! antivirus, MS Office 2010, Adobe Reader and Java; nothing else.
This is the event log: Problem signature:

Does anyone have any suggestion? I don't know what I could try.
Thanks a lot.
