Vista and NTDLL.exe crashes.

I have a remote user, running Vista Enterprise 32-Bit with SP2 on a Lenovo x301
This is one of many simailar laptops, all running the same image.
The laptop also runs security encryption software (as do the others), this means I cannot do a system restore, the software will not allow it.
The main symtoms are that the sidebar crashes and so does IE, if I start ie with no add ons it is fine, until you navigate to any page then it crashes.
I have reset IE and reset the advanced functions too.
Getting the following in the logs:

I have also checked NTDLL.DLL and it is the same version and size as other laptops.

Any Ideas?

I know you said that you started IE with no addons, but what you should also do is enable them one at a time after ensuring that it starts up and runs correctly.  Click  on Start, All Programs, Accessories, System Tools, and click Internet  Explorer no Add-ons.  If this stops the problem  you can try to narrow down the problem add-on.  Restart  IE normally, then click “Tools” on the Menu Bar and select Manage  Add-ons.  Disable all of your add-ons and then  re-enable them 1 at a time until you locate the add-on causing your  problem.

It is not the add ons, it is when you try to browse to a page, it is just that without the add ons it doesn't look for the start page. It is exactly the same when you start to load a page, whatever page you pick.

Looks like many people that had this problem found that it was caused by the memory.
So I would check your RAM. Try reseating the modules. Replace them or test the computer using 1 memory module at a time in different slots.

Turned out to be the Thinkpad Replicator drivers, rolled them back and now okay.
