XP Pro, SP3, Lastest updates, IE8, AVG9 (Free)

Hello,
I have a big problem with IE8 inasmuch as when I visit almost any web site that tries to run an activeX control IE8 will crash. I have removed and reinstalled IE8

I have disabled ALL my addons in IE8 and turned of DEP but it still crashes.
For example if I visit the adobe site and ask to install Flash Player. After I press the "Agree and Install Now" button the popup bar shows on IE8 then the Application Error dialog pops up with.
"The instruction at 0xacc0068 referenced memory at 0xacc0068 the memory could not be written.

Spent hours at it but can't find a solution.
Full AVG9 virus scan has been run with out finding any problems.

Any ideas please?
IMK

A little further testing and I have downloaded from ToolbarCop.
So maybe it is just Adobe I am having big problem with.
Do we have a fix and can anyone recommend web site that have good activeX controls to test with.

Just tried to test at www.pcpitstop.com/testax.asp and it crashed IE8

Many thanks IMK

Do you mean reboot the PC in safe mode and try again?

Don't have Inet access in Safe Mode so can't access the web to check.

In safe mode with network I went to Adobe site to install flash.
ActiveX bar enabled and was able to click it and download started briefly but crashed again.

I run lots of software on PC MS development c++ ver 6, Microchips IDE, MS Office, Outlook, etc etc. and this is the only thing that crashes so I think PC hardware is good but IE8 or something in that area is the issue.

Will be offline now for four hour.
Many thanks IMK

Fixed it.....

Found on adobe web site the downloads to uninstall and then reinstall Flash and Shockwave from the PC and not the web.

Ran all four of these and problem seems to be fixed....

Why is this software always such a pain and source of much grief?
