I have a Windows 7 Pro user where his IE 10 keeps on crashing.  I get the attached error message.

I have tried the following:
1. running IE with the addons disabled
2. did a chkdsk
3. reset all IE settings to factory default
4. uninstalled and re-installed IE10
5. Ran the following Microsoft hotfixes:
microsoftFixit.IEaddon.Run.exe
microsoftFixit-portable.exe
microsoftFixit50195.msi
msert.exe

I'm not sure what else to try.  Any Ideas.

When I get strange problems like that I think malware.  Run RogueKiller, TDSSKiller & SuperAntiSpyware and see what you come up with.

I ran that Microsoft product and then webroot, and they both came up clean.

I find that it's common for one or more anti-malware products to tell you something is clean and then a different one finds the problem.  I've had really good luck with RogueKiller lately.

Thanks, I'll try that next time, I did a system restore from a restore point from last week, and it's working fine. I'll try those next time this comes up.

If you are sure there is no malware I would run sfc /scannow but I'm betting on malware.  I would also uninstall Flash and Java and delete all their ActiveX and BHOs.
