unknown software exception (0x0eedfade)

Microsoft Internet Explorer just "evaporates" and displays the following message :

< iexplore.exe - Application error >
x "The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occured in the application at location 0x7c812a5b"

when I open certain pages of C|net sites.
Does the same with Lavasoft.
No error when I open the pages using AoL browser.

What's wrong?
I use DELL XPS M-170 laptop
2 Gig Ram
Win-XP Media Center edition (with SP2 presumably)the computer is 6-months old and all updates downloaded regularly.)
MacAfee and SpyWare Doctor but it started doing this even with McAfee disabled and before I installed Spyware Doctor. In fact I encountered the problem when I tried to downnload Lavasoft's free Adaware-SE and couldn't do it so bought Spyware Doctor instead Happy

No problem with my other laptop, an older DELL M-50 Precision with Win-XP Pro recently re-installed.

Posting email addresses in the clear is unwise.

This is not meant to offend you but it may be a sign you are not being careful enough (yet.)

About IE. Try this. Look up BHODEMON and remove all BHOs from IE. I find them to be more trouble than they are worth and a common failure item.

Thanks for the advice.
? Do you mean I should disable all "enabled" BHOs, using BHODemon.exe?
Or should I just erase the bhodmon1 folder, which must have been carried on to my new computer when I transfered my files from my old one. How did that BHOdemon ever got onto my old computer though? I don't know. Maybe you're right: I'm (still) not careful enough!
Should I remove all Browser Helper Objects from Internet Explorer, includeing the one by McAfee??
I now find that pages from are unstable too.
I'm a bit lost here.
Thanks for helping.

From what's a BHO to I don't want them.

What a BHO is to I don't want any is the typical journey. I think that it's your choice how to dispense with them but I offered one tool.

This time I don't get it. I may have a language problem. Did I say sth. wrong?
You write :"What a BHO is to I don't want any is the typical journey. I think that it's your choice how to dispense with them but I offered one tool."
What tool -- what journey?
How am I to dispense with BHOs?
Can anyone redirect me to another helpline?
Yours humbly,

BHO Demon

Here is a link to the program BHO Demon.

This program will analyize and list all the BHO's on your computer.

It will make suggestions as to which are bad and which are good.

You will then have the choice to keep or delete each individual one.

BHO-Demon 2.0

Thanks a lot. I.E. more stable now.
