    "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    Hi! I installed Vista Ultimate last night and all is well with everything,
    except that when I try to download ANY file anywhere, a dialog box pops up
    that says "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working." I think it allows me to
    restart the browser from the dialog box. I have tried this from another
    IE-based browser (Maxthon) and have had the same problem. I am able to
    download from Firefox 2.0.

    I have tried turning off protected mode and user account control, but it
    still has the same problem.

    Heeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllp!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Thanks!

    What else have you installed?

    Was this a clean install or an upgrade?

    Re: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    What else have I installed? Lotsa stuff - this is my home PC that has been
    upgraded from Windows XP SP2. There has been nothing installed after the
    upgrade, though, except sound and video drivers. IE7 was misbehaving before
    I did any driver updates, though.... Don't know if this helps - if you need
    any more info let me know. Thanks!

    No, but I'll give a shot.... I'm not at the computer in question right now -
    I'm at work and it's at home. I'm just looking for things to try... Thanks,

    Mike -

    I'm home now. I tired both of your suggestions, and IE7 still crashes when
    trying to initiate a file download.

    Any more suggestions out there? Thanks!

    RE: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    I've tried what was suggested to me -

    - Running IE7 with the Phishing Filter off (disabled);
    - Running IE7 without add-ons.

    I still get the "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" error when I try to
    download a file. (It works fine in Firefox, of course...) Does anybody else
    have any dieas what could be causing this? Thanks!

    Re: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    is it any file from anywhere or just something specific from a particular place.
    would it be possible to post what file and from where.

    Re: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    I wish I could say it was a specific file - it started when I tried to
    download "Crap Cleaner" from http://www.ccleaner.com from its alternate site.
    It now extends to EVERY file I try to download from the web. It happened
    just now when I was trying to download a gadget from the Gallery to the
    sidebar. The event log says it's happening in ntdll.dll... Thanks!

    Re: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    might run some good cleanup scans.
    for virus/trojan/malware.
    there are some online ones if you do not have any installed.
    most of the virus program publishers have one on heir web site.

    Re: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    I have done what you recommended - I ran a full virus/trojan/spyware etc.
    scan with PC-Cillin 2007 and found nothing except for cookies. I removed the
    cookies. Still no change.

    I tried reinstalling Vista Premium as an upgrade, and still no change.

    I tried re-registering DLLs: urlmon.dll, actxprxy.dll, shdocvw.dll,
    mshtml.dll, browseui.dll, jscript.dll, vbscript.dll and oleaut32.dll.
    Interestingly enough, they all re-registered EXCEPT shdocvw.dll and
    mshtml.dll, which give the message:

    The module "XXXXXXXX.dll" was loaded but the
    entry-point DllRegisterServer was not found.

    Make sure that "XXXXXXXX.dll" is a valid DLL or OCX file
    and then try again.

    If I remember correctly, SHDOCVW.DLL controls file downloads from Internet
    Explorer. Could a corrupt shdocvw.dll be causing my problem? And if so, how
    do I correct this? I guess I could ask the same question about MSHTML.DLL.

    Thanks for your help!

    Re: "Internet Explorer Has Stopped Working" on ALL File Downloads

    I am currentally using Windows Interenet Explorer 7, or it's supposed to be
    the latest version w/updates.

    I am using Windows Vista Home Basic 32 bit version.

    I am also using the Microsoft Finger Print reader w/latest updates "That do
    work with my Vista", which I might add is a great program because I hate
    typing in or double clicking passwords and information like that.

    Ok here is my problem, within the last few days or so "Which I didn't
    notice this problem untill a few days ago", When I log onto IE 7 and
    internet my computer has started freezing and then ask me to make a
    selection either close the program or reload it or stop it. It's really
    frustrating. I have a feeling everyone is going to say it's the Finger Print
    reader, but it doesn't happen with everything, I wish I could be more
    specific as to when it happens but it seems to have a mind of it's on. As of
    now I have UAC and IE7 Protected mode "ON", and plan to keep that on.
    Although I have noticed that certain site's like yahoo's podcast site want
    let me d/l or listen to their podcast on my computer with protected mode on.
    Any idea's or thoughts would be appreciated. I am no expert and I know a lot
    of you out there are! Thank you for your time.

    One last thing and I hope I don't catch any crap over this but I have a
    friend that has a forum that is awesome and I would like to list his link
    here for anyone who likes sports. It's called "The Sporting Nation", and
    here is the link

    http://z6.invisionfree.com/That_Spor...tion/index.php

    Do me a favor and tell them Dirty-Bird sent you!

    That's not why I posted this message though, I really do need some
    information about this problem. Any thoughts would be appreciated! Thanks
    for taking the time to read.
