IE8 32 and 64 bit

    I am tired of IE8-32 firing up with "Internet Explorer has stopped
    responding" on my W7x64 laptop (Event ID 1002 in "Windows Log -
    Application". NB why nothing under "Applications and Services Logs -
    Internet Explorer"?). This happens every day, often more than once.

    Although I have FF and Opera, I thought I'd try IE8-64. Not had a "Stopped
    responding" message, but can't stop "This website wants to install the
    following add-on 'Adobe Flash Player Installer' from 'Adobe Systems
    Incorporated'. If you trust the website..." appearing every few minutes,
    whether I agree to the install or not. AFAIAA, there is no 64-bit version
    of the Flash player, so why does this message keep appearing Flash is
    installed and running on IE8-32).

    On other thing. I see in Tools | Options | Programs that "Internet Explorer
    (64-bit) cannot be the default browser". Why not?

    Thanks. But I spoke too soon - IE8-64 just crashed with the same message
    and Event ID 1002.

    I see that there is no ActiveX support for a level 2 browser. No wonder MS
    doesn't allow it as a default browser...

    1. Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

    => Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No add-ons).

    Troubleshooting and Internet Explorer's (No Add-ons) Mode [Applies to IE7 &
    IE8 in all OSS]

    2. Does the behavior persist if you Reset IE Advanced settings (RIES)?
    http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows7/Reset-Internet-Explorer-settings

    3. What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed IE8?

    4. Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?
