Windows 7: Adding favorite to IE8 crashes the browser

You could try some basic maintenance:
c:\ (properties): Disk Cleanup and Tools/Error Checking;
sfc /scannow in a command prompt window.
If you have the Windows disk, try a repair install.

I've already done the sfc scannow, and deleted the temp files multiple times.

I'm not really willing to mess around with a repair install for something like this.
Mainly because this seems like some type of incompatibility, rather than a bad install.
So far, this is the only true system bug on this installation.

I'm disappointed that the Microsoft help line is down every time I try it.

That help line was down every single time I tried, so I eventually gave up and set firefox as my default browser.

Well anyway, I had to do a reinstall for another issue, and now i'm able to add favorites again.

I wish Microsoft had been available to help me sort out what the problem was on this. I would have like to understand where the error was.

if you look through the first page of this thread, you'll see a link I was given for microsoft tech support. but every time I tried it, tech support was unavailable.

the strange thing at the end of the day, is that it was only that one install that did it, even though i've been using the same setup programs, whether it's my kids computers or mine.
