Perhaps the information at this site will help with the situation "My Internet Explore 8 restarts when I go to some web sites"
I have a Dell Inspiron 530 desktop with 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo E4600 processor with 3GB RAM and with OS Windows XP Pro SP3. While I now use Firefox as my default browser I have also been using Internet Explorer, recently upgraded from Version 7 to 8. The concern (which occurs in both versions) is that while I can open a web site with no problems, as soon as I close the browser using the red cross at top right I get the error message "IE has experienced a problem and needs to close". With version 8, one of the tabs that was open reappears with a message saying that this tab has been recovered. Event viewer shows event ID 1000 and a description as follows:
"Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 8.0.6001.18702, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x03200ea3."
While I can stop using IE all together, I am interested to find out what may be the cause. Could it be caused by an add-on because it seemed to start at about the time I upgraded Billeo (a form filling program)?
