It opened for me, but it took a long time with 100% of processor.

I am also using IE8 with Win XP Home SP3 and a HOST file as an ad blocker 
and McAfee Security Center.

Access 2000 DB
I need some help... I have several Microsoft Access 2000 databases that after upgrading to Office 2002 they crash. What happens is when you open the database, after several seconds Microsoft Office 2002 crashes with a general "Microsoft Access has encountered a problem and needs to close." I haven't found any solution for this yet. I've tried running Office in safemode, no luck. These are databases that I've used for the last 3-4 years under 2000 and never had a problem until upgrading to 2002. It's really weird, some of my databases converted over, so...

IE8 Crashes on Sites That Use Flash
I keep getting a message from IE that says it's closing IE to protect my computer, and it only happens on sites that use Flash. When I try to download the Adobe Flash Player (which I thought I already had), that's when IE decides not to display the web page supposedly because of a malfunctioning or malicious add-on.

IE8 not executing and uninstallable
I downloaded IE8 onto my laptop and it worked fine for awhile but now I'm unable to bring up the browser at all, and consequently cannot get online - even though I'm connected. The laptop is a Inspiron XPS Gen 2 running XP Pro and is tapping the net through wireless. I had just recently downloaded SP3 and KBxxxxxx updates. After that I was unable to bring up the expolrer. I thought maybe if I uninstalled and then reinstalled IE8, it might fix it. When I went to uninstall IE8 there wasn't a remove button in the Add/Remove for it. Has anyone run across this kind of...

async http handler crashes occasionally on iis7
I have an asynchronous http handler that crashes on iis7 (on w2k8 x64 or w7 x64) -- I didn't see this behaviour on iis6 (w2k3 x86) where it was running for around 2 years. It's reasonably reproducible under load. Basically the handler is just calling BeginRead() on a file, then BeginWrite() on HttpResponse.OutputStream, then when finished it calls the callback passed to BeginProcessRequest. On the odd occasion this callback throws a NullReferenceException, with the backtrace listed below. I've logged everything it does to a StringBuilder to check what it's doing, ...

WIN 7 and IE8
Hi, I have Windows 7 / 64. The computer came with Internet Explorer 8. All the previous Internet Explorer that I have had, when you are viewing and reading a page, you could go to File-- Send- and had the choice Send it by E-Mail or Send Link by e-mail. With Internet Explorer 8, if you go File-Send- the choices to Send Page by E-mail and Link by E-mail are grayed out. The only choice you have is to send Shortcut to the Desktop. My question is: how can I activate the 2 grayed out choices, so that I can send the page by e-mail? Thanks for any info. Doc Win 7 does not come ...

Since upgrading from ie7 to ie8 roughly 6mths ago I find slowly at first but gradually becoming more and more frequently while I am using IE8 it crashes. Most times it will recover but occasionally it wil BSD and reboot. I send the reports as requested by the MS system but do not restore from any earlier points as I believe the IE8 is itself the problem. I had hoped over time MS would eventually come out with a ho...

ESA Crashes during mailbox cleanup operation
We have an exchange 2003 enterprise server, and lately it's been exhibiting some strange behavior - when we try and run the mailbox cleanup process (which is just set to purge any items older than 30 days in the deleted items folder for all users) the Exchange Service Agent terminates (and gets restarted). Here's the log entry for that part: The Microsoft Exchange System Attendant service terminated unexpectedly. It has done this 1 time(s).

Outlook 2003 Crash without IE7
Hello All, I am having a similar problem to some posts here, but mine is slightly different. I have IE7 installed on a computer that is receiving messages from a guy in Venezuela in Outlook 2003. On this computer, I can respond with no problem. On another computer we have, IE6 is installed. The person with IE6 tries to open the same message from the same person in Venezuela, and it causes their Outlook (2003) to crash. I have isolated that it is upgrading to IE7 that solves the problem, but the user wants to stay with IE6. Is there any known difference between IE6 and IE7 that would cau...

client-server work locally but client crashes if launched elsewhere.
Hi. I developed an application for video-conferencing using Visual Studio 2005, Windows XP, SP2. I have a static ip and hardcoded it both on server and client. The client should connect to my machine and get video data, which is very large because I didn't use lossy compression (2MB/15 sec), afterwards it displays it. Everything works fine if I launch both server and client on my computer. But when client is started elsewhere most times it crashes suddenly, but 2 times it worked for about one second... I use winsock TCP for transmiting data. Have you ever heard of such problems? Should I p...

XL2007 on XP hangs/crashes when date cells are selected
Hi there Since 2-3 weeks I'm having a very annoying problem with XL2007 on XP. It keeps hanging (the app stops responding) when I select certain cells in certain documents. I tried switching off all macros, all formulas, error-control, all add-ins, but to no avail. I re-installed Office, but it didn't solve anything. I realized today that it occurs all the time I try to select a cell containing a date (formatted as date). Did someone encounter the same problem? Do you have an idea what might be wrong? I'm not a Windows expert, I usually use mac, but at work we use WinXP, ...
