IE 8 Beta RCA 1

  rawprawn 17:45 30 Jan 2009

I keep getting a message the Internet Explorer has stopped working, everything seems OK if I just continue.
I have tried disabling addons but it seems to make no difference.
Anyone any ideas?

It may be just a glitch in IE8 itself, it is still in beta so it may be something that needs ironing out in later versions...

  MAT ALAN 17:54 30 Jan 2009

Sorry NO, i haven't used any version of explorer since firefox was a pup....

Still an XP man for the moment, it does everything ineed it to do very well so no plans to change..

thread suggests its related to software conflict which is bound to happen in beta versions, it does suggest some progs to look at that at this time might be the source of the issue...

Thanks for the link, I will work my way through it tomorrow but as you say I think it is just a gltch in the beta version.

I have had a read and although I have the usual addins my Flash it is the lates version, the others I have are all seem to make no difference if I disable them.
I have scanned for malware and I am clean.
I run Kaspersky and SAS.
It hasn't had a problem so far this morning, but I'm sure it will later in the day.

I get it all the time since downloading IE8.It never closes down just the message to send report to Microsoft.
