Whenever I use close the IE (IE8) after browsing I get a crash like this:

IE Crash

It looks like MS are not trusting themself. Is there any way I can fix it? (Other than using firefox or chrome that is.)

Could be an addon misbehaving. Try running IE with no addons(it's buried in your start menu under Accessories->System Tools) and see if the problem persists. If it does not, disable add ons one at a time until you find the culprit

Yes disabling add ons worked..although I don't know which one caused the problem. – user10056 Sep 10 '09 at 16:45

Disable memory Protection option in Internet Explorer options -> in advanced tab


Have look on this "How do I turn off Data Execution Prevention errors?"

Disable addons separately, one by one. If you have IE 7 or 8 you can access them through Tools -> Internet Options -> Programs -> Manage Addons. You can then disable/enable single addon. If you have many it can take you quite some time, but at least you'll know which addon is problematic.
