DEP causing Internet Explorer to crash

#1
I've been using Windows 7 for the last few days, and certain webpages that I go to cause IE to crash. It tells me something about DEP causing it. I disabled DEP to see if that would help, and now, going to the same pages just causes IE to "loop", and then finally "crash" (telling me that it stopped trying, to avoid "a loop"). I have no add-ons or anything installed for IE so I have no idea whats going on. I can view the same pages in vista with IE 7 just fine, so I'm not sure if its an IE 8, or Windows 7 issue.

If anyone can shed any light, I'd appreciate it greatly.

Thanks.

Hello,

Can you give us the exact error message you receive when it crashes. That's important in being able to troubleshoot your problem.

Has it always done this since day 1 or just recently?

If so, have you installed any new software or made any other changes to your system?

Do these sites use XML?

It says that the website can not be displayed due to Data Execution Prevention, then it gives me a link to click to read on how to disable it (which I've done). It has done it since day one. I have made no changes to the system, and the software that I had installed, I have since uninstalled (just to see if any of it made any difference).

When DEP is disabled, the website also will not display, it loads, then I get a message telling me that Internet Explorer has crashed. It attempts to recover itself, and re-load the page, and then crashes again. Then a page pops up telling me that the page can't be displayed and that as a means to prevent "Internet explorer from looping" it has stopped trying to load the page.

I've tried that too, and it doenst work. Now I get (as I have been) [This is w/o the enable memory protection feature checked under internet options) (and I assume with DEP disabled?)

Internet Explorer has stopped trying to restore this website. It appears that the website continues to have a problem.

What you can do:

Go to your home page


Try to return to pornbits.net

When a website causes a failure or crash, Internet Explorer attempts to restore the site. It stops after two tries to avoid an endless loop

Apparently, you don't understand when you visit some porn sites, they download malicious code and that's the reason why it's preventing it.

You probably already have junk on your computer from visiting porn sites.

I'd recommend a complete virus scan.

Not a single thing on the install, aside from the three windows updates it got right after I installed and booted up.

nothing to do with porn sites.. my sharepoint infrastructure I utilize @ my office does not work with IE8 and windows7

sombster,

I suggest you download a free software program called HijackThis. It gives you a listing of all the various components that start by default and your Browser Helper Objects (which I believe may be the problem.

Download it here and post the results back here for us to look over.

I've had a few problems running HJT on 64 bit, it seems that it can't find most of the ordinary files
