Greetings BC Users!

As the defacto IT guy at our workplace, I'm stuck with trying to sort out an issue we're having with IE8 in a Dell Pentium 4 2.8GHz desktop running XP Home with SP3. This is our primary office computer, used mostly for invoicing/accounting and internet/email access.

Presently, Internet Explorer opens fine, and has no problem with opening sites. The problem occurs when closing Explorer or (generally) any window within the IE8 environment. At that time, you get the Windows "thunk" sound effect and a "Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library" window pops up with an Abnormal Termination error message - here's a link to a screenshot: http://i51.tinypic.com/kcy1ci.jpg

If you click on "Ignore", a second message pops up - screenshot linked here: http://i52.tinypic.com/esrdc3.jpg

Clicking "Abort" or "Retry" usually avoids that second message, and will sometimes allow you to use and close Explorer (after reopening it, of course) without the initial error recurring. Explorer will always reopen and work.

I have uninstalled and reinstalled IE8 and performed all updates to no avail. No toolbars are present, and it behaves the same when run without add-ons.

I'm ashamed to say that we're not currently running antivirus - our previous ISP had it included, but our new one does not. (This error problem is much more recent than the change in ISP). I'll be dealing with the antivirus thing shortly.

I've seen plenty of posts from people with IE script errors, but not this one exactly. Any ideas? We'd go strictly Firefox, but the software interface for our CCTV system's DVR only works with Explorer (and only in Compatibility View mode).

Have you tried re-installing?


Also when is the CCTV getting upgraded to a 21 century system?  :bananas:
