Since downloading Internet Explorer 8 I continually get the following error message when leaving a site..."Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close.  We are sorry for the inconvenience."  Error signature is "AppName: iexplore.exe  AppVer: 8.0.6001.18702  ModName:  unknown  ModVer:  Offset:  1007830d."  An unhandled win32 exception occurred in ieplore.exe [3452] Just-In-Time debugging this exception failed with the following error.  No installed debugger has Just-In-Time debugging enabled.  In Visual Studio, Just-In-Time debugging can be enabled from Tools/Options/Debugging/Just-In-Time."  I've tried everything I know and still get this error.  Does anyone have any suggestions on correcting this problem?

Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; Vista 64-bit SP2) as well as your IE version when posting in an IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next reply.

1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)? <= Read before using!

3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed, is your subscription current, and is it supported in IE8?  What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?  What third-party firewall (if any)?  Were any of these applications running in the background when you installed IE8?

4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought it)?
