Windows 7, IE 10.  IE seems to work ok EXCEPT when I click anything on the menu bar.  For example, Favorites or Tools.  2nd example, I click favorites (on the menu bar) and for two seconds the favorites list will show but then the "IE has encountered a problem and must shut down" error occurs.  Suggestions?  
Thank You.

Do you have any tool-bars, add-ons, etc. installed?

Try:

(1) Check if IE works okay in safe mode with networking.
(2) Disable all add-ons, etc.
(3 Reset IE.
(4) If still not working, uninstall IE 10 (Program and Features -> View updates  -> Search for IE 10 -> Uninstall). Use CCleaner to clean. Restart. Let Windows Update reinstall IE 10.

aadih,
I forgot to mention I already reset IE.  I restarted IE without any Add-ons.  Neither of these made a difference.  I looked to see if IE was available to uninstall in programs list and found that it was NOT.  After I read your comment I googled how to uninstall IE10 from Win 7 and saw that I need to uninstall it through Windows Updates not Control Panel/Uninstall Programs.  I will try that.  Thank You.

FYI: Control Panel - > Program and Features  -> View Installed Updates (left side) -> Search IE10 in the list -> Select IE10 -> Uninstall.

PCGalOfCal--I suggest you look in Event Viewer for Errors timestamped at the time you have the problem.  Look in Windows Logs|Applications and System.  The error messages in the General tab should indicate what the Faulting Module is.  That is what we need to know.  You can copy and post those messages here.

I uninstalled 10 and it reverted back to IE8.  I tried reinstalling 9 and 10 but they both failed.  In addition, the same problem is still happening with the current IE 8.  Attached is info from event viewer.  Not sure if this is helpful or not.  Suggestions what to try next?

Do you have a restore point before the problem happened?

If you do, the quickest solution is to restore your PC to an earlier point.

I'll have to talk about that with the client.  Not sure that's the best option in this case but I'll see.

She wants to call it quits for now and just stick with Mozilla.  Thanks for your help.
