Blue Screen crash when I try to execute Internet Explorer

When I attempt to open Internet Explorer, I get a crash to the Blue Screen with an error message that says "Windows has encountered a problem and needs to shut down. . ."

It advises me to update my drivers or go into the Bios and disable system cacheing or memory shadowing.

Then I get the message:

STOP: 0x00000008E (0xC0000005, 0x80635466, 0xA10552D4, 0x00000000)

I've updated all my drivers, replaced the hard drive, and added 2G of RAM to no avail. I've also run a full virus scan with an updated McAfee.

Nothing has worked.

I'm running a Dell XPS desktop with 3G RAM, P4, 3.5gh processor.

Does this ring any bells with anyone?

Try switching out one RAM stick at a time. If that no work, try another graphics card. Does it not happen on anything else?

Ill try that

In reply to: Try...

I'll give that a shot.

It only happens on when I attempt to run IE and only when I am logged in on my profile. On my wife's profile (and a third one I created to test it) IE starts without a problem.
