Internet Explorer not working RRS feed

  • Question

  • A while ago, I had come here for a similar reason, but it had just gotten worse.

    The following message has come up for a few programs but particularly Internet Explorer.

    Internet Explorer has stopped working
    Windows can check online for a solution to the problem.
    => Check online for a solution and close the program
    => Close the program

    It appeared once in a while, and Internet Explorer would close without notice frequently.
    I thought maybe it was because my IE was out of date, so i upgraded to IE 8.
    The next day, I turned on my computer to find the message (above) had come up straight away when I opened IE and closed it straight away.

    The following message was also included.

    Problem signature:
      Problem Event Name: BEX
      Application Name: iexplore.exe
      Application Version: 8.0.6001.18702
      Application Timestamp: 49b3ad2e
      Fault Module Name: StackHash_fd00
      Fault Module Version:
      Fault Module Timestamp: 00000000
      Exception Offset: 02af0715
      Exception Code: c0000005
      Exception Data: 00000008
      OS Version: 6.0.6001.
      Locale ID: 3081
      Additional Information 1: fd00
      Additional Information 2: ea6f5fe8924aaa756324d57f87834160
      Additional Information 3: fd00
      Additional Information 4: ea6f5fe8924aaa756324d57f87834160

    Is there a way to fix this without restoring the whole system?

    P.S. - why does my IE work when i say it didnt?
    im using someone elses computer =)
