Runtime error 217


I 've got a problem with IE 8.

Sometimes, when I want to enter any text at various pages (like , and many others) there is a error message:

Runtime Error 217 at 02E37E3D


Internet Explorer  has stopped working.


1. There is no add-ons installed.

2.  Security level in IE has been set to default (I've reset this)

3. All temp files has been removed.

4. I've disabled "enable 3rd-party browser extensions" option in Advanced tab.


What else can I do, to fix this problem?



IE version : 8.0.7600.16385

Windows 7 Enterprise.
