bsod 0x0000008e vista when using ie

Tapostol used Ask the Experts™
I have a dell latitude d630 laptop with dual boot; vista ultimate and xp pro. Whenever I use IE in vista only i will eventually get the bsod 0x0000008e. I have ie8 and all of my drivers are updated and this happened after a fresh re-install of the os.
Any thoughts?

Look at the parameters of this error and write them for us if you have trouble posting dump file.

Microsoft recommends for your error:
- Make sure you have enough disk space.
- If a driver is identified in the bug check message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates.
- Try changing video adapters.
- Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates.
- Disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.
Bugcheck 0x8e = kernel mode app threw an exception
The rest of the bugcheck will help.  I can get it from the minidump(s).  Please copy the dumps out from c:\windows\minidump to your Documents folder.  Rename each so it ends in .txt
Run msinfo32 - save with default NFO file extension, then add .txt file ext to the NFO file so it now looks like a txt file to the EE system
Zip the dumps & NFO-text file up and attach to your next post.
What was the size of the partition that you installed Vista on?  Did you install OEM (Dell, HP, etc... ) Vista version or full retail Vista?  Any new hardware recently?

Thanks for the reply's but I am now gettting muliple bsod's so I am going to nuke it and re-install. I think an MS update is what caused the issue the machine ran fine for a long time as is..
