You need to right click on one of the IE entries there like I mentioned in my earlier post, and click on "View Details" and post what that says.

Windows 7 Professional 32bit
RE: internet explorer 8 no working

I've seen this occur on 4 computers in the past 48 hours:
2 using Win 7 Home Prem 64bit,
1 using Win 7 Professional 32bit, and
1 using WinXP SP3.

It might be a coincidence but all 4 units had just updated Adobe Flash player. One occurred within minutes of doing the update. After the flash player update, opening Internet Explorer 8 (same browser on all three) gave the message "Internet Explorer has stopped working" and it then closed.

Some of the things we tried which didn't work: Disabling the flash player plug-in did not work; uninstalling flash player did not work; doing a system restore did not work; opening IE in Safe Mode didn't work.

Solution for IE8: Using the Internet Explorer "Reset" found on the Advanced tab in Internet Options took care of the issue. It did not require checking the "Delete personal settings" option. See: How to reinstall or repair Internet Explorer in Windows 7, Windows Vista, and Windows XP (Method 1)

Hope that helps.

I find it quite odd, but maybe just a coincidence.

Around the same time as this started happening, Commonwealth Bank in Australia had a major computer glitch and their ATM's were spitting out free money to clients who were making withdraws. It didn't matter how much people were withdrawing, they were getting about $1,000 each.

Could it at all possibly be connected?

Oooh. Too bad my bank couldn't join in that, er, fun. ;-)

Still, I see a possible connection with the Flash update+IE.
