    Hello Hidnface, and welcome to Vista Forums.

    You may have a bad add-on causing this. Resetting IE may help.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Did you install or change anything right before you started getting this error?

    You might see if doing a System Restore at startup using a restore point dated before you got this error to see if it can fix it for you.

    Re: Internet Explorer bug

    I have restore points and will try these.

    I suspect some changes/tweaks I made to vista some times back which may cause IE to be instable.....but don't really know which tweak can cause IE to malfunction.

    Note: Everything's working fine on my Vista. Only IE is bugging.

    Do you know how can I reset all tweaks done on vista and make it as fresh without removing my documents?

    Thanks

    Well, hopefully a System Restore dated far back enough will do the trick for you. To be safe, you should backup anything that you do not want to lose though.

    PROBLEM SOLVED!!

    System restore was not helpful, unfortunately.

    So I uninstall IE 8 and returned back to IE 7...but still not working. I choose the Normal Startup for windows vista services from msconfig. Reinstall IE 8. Disable Protected Mode for Internet Explorer (Internet Options > Security > uncheck Enable Protected Mode.

    Now it's working.

    For all those (like me) who use 99,9% Firefox, there's a useful plugin for Firefox 3 called IE Tab. With this plugin installed, you can open every pages that need IE (like microsoft updates). No need to use IE anymore

    Have a nice day
