For the next few days, I am intending to run with PageHeap enabled. I’ve gotten a few crashes that come up as heap corruption, so hopefully enabling PageHeap will help find the root cause.
For some time now, Internet Explorer has crashed for me in sometimes random scenarios. Before you get to bashing Internet Explorer, the main culprit behind Internet Explorer crashing is some sort of plugin or add-on. Therefore, with each crash, I use WinDbg to attach to the crash and do an analysis to determine a most likely cause. With the guidance of what it reports, I instructed Adobe Reader to not open in the browser, removed the Upromise Turbosaver for now, and removed the Skype plugin for Internet Explorer. With those changes alone, the Internet Explorer stability seems to have improved. There’s still something more happening though.
