IE8 “Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close,” and needs to restart. It will Recover automatically but show no solutions as to what the problem was. OS: Vista Ultimate 64 bit, only occurs while watching sports (streaming video) on ESPN3.com . Recently upgraded Video Card which required updating Vista from SP1 to SP2 for use of DirectX 11.
In the last few years rarely have I ever had this problem with IE7 or IE8 but it has happened (note: using IE only, not with streaming video) . I wonder since this has just become more frequent if related to SP2 or with the new AMD/ATI graphics card Radeon HD 6870 and installing ( Catalyst 10.12 ) driver.
I have tried disabling Add-Ons, everything possible within IE8 Tools. I have uninstalled my Display Drivers and trying earlier versions. No longer have my old Video Card to reinstall cause it dead. The only thing I can think of is UnInstalling SP2. I do understand there is an IE Fix-It program. But because I get a Monochrome type color or lines and distorted images while watching the streaming video on ESPN3.com believe it may have more to do with the ATI HD 6870 card or Driver triggering IE8 to stop RESPONDING “Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close,” . ( It happens every few minutes as I am attempting to watch my sport games on ESPN3.com. )
Have suggestions or Solution please Post.. Thank You!
