I use Internet Explorer 9 (version 9.0.8112.16421) with Windows 7 and Symantec's Norton Internet Security 2012. These programs have been working compatibly for quite a while with no problem on both my desktop and laptops computers. Quite suddenly last evening my problem began on my desktop (a Mac-Pro with Boot Camp I use as a PC). Every time I start up Internet Explorer, it stops in the midst of coming up, and displays an "Internet Explorer has stopped working" message. That message window repeats every time I select either "Close program" choice. I can only get out of the loop by clicking the upper right-hand "x" on the IE window, and then the "x" on the message window. (Symantec Community Forum references this problem and suggests that "rootkit" malware may be the cause, and suggests asking Bleeping Computer.) Here is the detailed "Problem signature" I get in that message window:

FWIW, I did a Windows upgrade after posting my previous message. IE seems to be working now on my machine. I haven't checked the event log yet, but I'm back online.
