Internet explorer crashing

At apparently random moments Internet explorer crashes with the message

The instructions at "0x7c911e58" referenced memory at "0xffffffff". the memory could not be "read".

I have recently downloaded all the windows XP updates and the latest version of Internet explorer to try and fix the problem but it ha snot helped. I have also used C cleaner and another registry cleaner and have now run out of ideas - can anybody help?

There was a bad Microsoft update last month which affected I/Explorer.If you scroll back to after till after the 11th of last month you will probably pick up the faulty up-date and repair it.There was a fix from Microsoft to repair it.

You may have to reinstall or to repair Internet Explorer in Windows XP if you have problems with Internet Explorer because of damaged files or missing registration information. You may also decide to reinstall or to repair Internet Explorer 6 to resolve problems with Outlook Express in Windows XP.

Reinstall Internet Explorer 6 by using the Ie.inf file

Thanks for your help I am working through your ideas. Buteman I followed your link and have tried disabling IE add-ons this seems to have worked and it seems that the intrusion detection on Norton Internet security 2008 was causing the conflict. If the problem recurrs I will take your advise "F1"
