Hi All,

I need help here, Win 7 on Dell Vostro 64 bit os sp1.
-Anti Virus: Norton Security Suite

Ie 9 is where the issue started if opened it would close instantly. the 64 bit version is / was fine. Opening with no add ons had no change.

I uninstalled IE9 only to find the problem stayed, IE8 32 crashes and IE8 64 bit works fine... The no add on for IE8 has no change.

Running either as "Runas Admin" no change. Also resetting IE had no change. Logging in as Administrator and running it had no change.

Creating a new user and attempting to run it had no change.

One other issue that might be related I can not uninstall Java 6 update 25, it states the MSI is missing and I cant find a copy any where to remove or re install and remove.

If you have not followed the instructions, see http://www.java.com/en/download/faq/remove_olderversions.xml .

IE 8 may be damaged, I would simply reinstall it, http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/internet-explorer/downloads/ie-8 and then reinstall the applicable critical updates.


See http://javatester.org/version.html or http://www.java.com/en/download/testjava.jsp
