I get this quite often, well not too often but the problem is there and is an annoying one. Sometimes it gives an error from sysfader.exe saying something like "The memory reference from blah blah to blah blah cannot be 'read' "

Does that mean that I have broken ram or something??

I tried looking in event viewer I can see errors like...

Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16608, faulting module ntdll.dll, version 5.1.2600.2180, fault address 0x00018fea.

Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16608, faulting module mshtml.dll, version 7.0.6000.16608, fault address 0x0005712b.

Hanging application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16608, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000.

And sometimes IE7 just crashes as I am trying to open a site. Other things still work on my computer but I have to "end task" on the crashing browser...

Broken ram? Dont think its virus...

Is XP updated properly?

If so, I would try uninstalling/reinstalling or repairing IE 7.

Do you have a nVidia graphics card? If yes, try updating/reloading the driver

You mean...IE hangs (according to Event Viewer)?

I ask again...is XP properly updated?

I have many hanging apps errors on my two systems, but never one with IE.

My hanging apps are usually indicative of coding errors by the program developer. Sometimes updates correct them, sometimes there are no updates and I just know what programs will reflect errors. Mine are all video applications.

IE 7 has many FAULTS. And it seems Microsoft is aware of it, However, any hopes for an update in the near future are SLIIM!
I eventually "rolled back" to 6.5. If you put a CD or DVD in your drive...go into "MyComputer" and Explore and look at what it causes the Icons to do!

At the moment, it seems that 6.5 is well worth going back to!

I would like to think my windows is properly updated...

But IE7 gives tabs which IE6 doesnt have >.>

Oh well, I'll use firefox I guess... But given those event viewer errors, there's not much you can tell? Like, my RAM is broken at all? Reason I ask is those sysfader.exe errors where it says some memory cant be read...

Hello Illusion13,

I have been trying to find information about this file: sysfader.exe, and I get conflicting information.

Some places say it is related to the graphics card
Some places say it is related to the fade effect on menus etc.
Some places say it comes bundled with video and graphics programs
And yet others say it is malware.

Can you do a search for the file and provide a complete file path? If you get more than one, provide all the file paths.

Note: I have read that problems with that file occurred also with IE6

Hello illusion13,

Orange Blossom is on the right track. :thumbsup: SysFader is the program in Win Xp used to apply fade effects. Also used to smooth out the fonts. It is not really needed.

Right click your desktop, click properties, click the appearance tab, then click the effects box.
Now uncheck the first four boxes. Not only do you not need any of these, but it should cure your problem and speed up your Desktop.

Instead of introducing new errors to the OS, it would be nice if MS fixed some broken portions first.

I have had the "Hanging application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16608" on a few on my Windows XP systems.
It seems to be related to an ADD ON that I haven't identified yet.
My resolution has been to RESET IE7. This means that any user configuration, except Favorites, is set back to the factory defaults, so make a copy of your home page tabs before you reset IE7.

To reset IE7, follow these steps:
1. Click the Tools menu, and then click Internet Options.
2. On the Advanced tab, click Reset.
3. In the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box, click Reset.
4. When Internet Explorer 7 finishes restoring the default settings, click Close, and then click OK two times.
5. Close Internet Explorer 7. The changes take effect the next time that you open Internet Explorer 7.
