I just came back after long time, and all this new look is fine, but every time I open some thread, my IE7 shuts down.
I am in the proccess of making me a slipstreamed XP, so this is happening on the crisp-clean XP with freshly installed patches and dotnet frameworks 1.1, 2, and 3. All patched and everything.
At the moment I don't have any other browsers installed.
This is what happens:
It closes IE window only on first page of the thread. It doesn't if the thread spawns on more than one page AND if I'm on other than first page. It happens just as the page finishes loading.
I fixed it by installing latest Adobe flash player. (10-something) Previous version was 6 (one that came with IE7 or SP3 for 32bit XP), so I'll mark this thread as "solved".
Replicating the problem is easy. Just uninstall adobe flash player, and it starts all over again.
My guess is that one of the flash-based ads is causing it.
Anyway, I thought you should know about that.
