IE10 crashes RRS feed

  • Question

  • I developped an asp web site and it has been working fine for the last 4 years. It is a local web site installed on about ~200 Windows Servers (2008 and 2008 R2). Recently IE10 was added to the Windows Update so all servers downloaded the update. Now when they access the page IE keeps crashing. I don't believe it is a configuration problem with the servers since it is not specific to 1 machine (about 200 servers, my own Windows 7 dev machine as well as the tech support computers).

    Since the web site didn't change recently and it is working fine on IE6, 7, 8 and 9 as well as Chrome and Firefox, I doubt the issue is with the asp web site itself.

    I tried it on my dev machine so I could start the debugger and it is an access violation in IE10. Obviously any web site, even if there was a bug, should not make a browser crash.

    From what I can see, it seems that problem occurs on pages that have an update panel that is refreshed every 5 seconds (but maybe it is not the source of the crash). They are local web sites (with private information) so they are not public. It is a major issue to us because we have to revert to IE9 on all ~200 servers and it is impossible to revert to IE9 on all the computers that access the servers since we have no control over them.

  • Hi,

    google analytics.... IE10 has tracking protection turned on by default. server versions of IE run in Enhanced protected mode by default. IE10 includes mitigations for XSS.... iexplore.exe 'crashing' is usually associated with incompatible Addons.... see Advanced tab of Internet Options for crash recovery options. When asking questions include the full error messages you may receive. The first step in troubleshooting IE issues is to test in noAddons mode.
