    Well, it seems that you have found your workaround already!

    Would be a usefull workaround for a home pc and not for a company with
    12000 users and several different intranet web applications, which
    have to be approved for new browser versions a long time.

    It hasn't been a known issue until your post. And, since it is only
    happening to you, something is wacky in your network.

    I don't think so, it happens at work and also on my private PC at home.

    Ok but if there is a bug here, what makes you believe that it will
    be fixed? There is a next version available that does not expose the
    problem. So it already has been fixed.

    I think you have to choose between living with the problem and rolling
    out the fix. Or do you see other solutions?

    I can give you the answer if somebody told me, which problem causes
    the crash. ;-)
    Perhaps there is an update for IE7, perhaps it can be solved by an
    Option? Don't know...

    I think the implication was that you already know this is not a problem
    with IE8, only with IE7.

    IE8 was rolled out not just as an improvement (as such) but also
    addressing bug fixes.

    IE8 is now the "standard" and IE9 is already indevelopment. Whether IE9
    will be back compatible to W2K and XP is yet to be seen.

    IE6 is already a red-headed step child and many sites are starting to
    abandon support for it. YouTube is an example.

    So your solution is to "upgrade" to IE8. If that continues to be a
    problem then it's likely your network.

    There will be no bug fixes or improvements to IE7. That is a dead
    product the same as all of its predecessors.

    You may also want to consider that IE is not your only browser to
    consider.

    I think his issue is that he has applications that are "not yet certified
    for use with IE8". However, considering that IE8 has been on the
    market for longer than a year already, and that it has been available
    for testing even longer, the support for those applications is
    apparently in a very sad state. When they have not certified it in
    well over a year, when will it be certified at all?

    Not nice when a supplier can hold back the rollout of new software in
    the company like that...

    (there are companies that are still stuck to IE6 because of bad webapps)
