  • Hi Mark,
    this forums topic is the operating system Windows Home Server. Therefore your question here is off topic. Since Internet Explorer 8 is a Beta product, you should post in the related Beta newsgroups and report a bug on Microsoft Connect.

    This being said, could it be, that IE 8 is not the main reason. Did you already uninstall it and try again?  If this doesn't help, either try an earlier system restore point or check the event log for more detailed error messages or warnings. Try to run chkdsk /f /r from a command prompt to fix eventual disk issues.

    Can you open folders below C:\ by clicking Start/Run and entering a folder name (i.e. C:\Windows)?
    Could also be, that a corrupt file in C:\ is causing this crash.
