See if this will bring you back from the brink...

Might be a bad addon. You can try running IE in no add on mode (safe mode) to see if it still happens.

(This tutorial has the shortcut for IE no addons which you can temporarily use, or pin it to your start menu), which apparently, looks like they removed form the start menu in Windows 7 RTM. I don't have it there anymore. But the shortcut still works for Win 7.

Or try resetting IE to see if that will clear it from crashing.

Looks like Antman snuck in and posted the reset tutorial when I was writing.

Thanks for the tips, I can already tell if I go to, rather than right clicking the live messenger icon, in either Add-on or no Add-on it is much better.
