IE immediately crashes within new XP Pro install
by David M - 1/15/13 12:57 PM
I've resurrected an old Pentium 4 system (with 1gb ram, good video card, 80gb hdd) to give to needy grade school child. HDD was reformatted, XP Pro installed without any other programs, system running stable, however when I attempt to use IE to find video drivers, it immediately crashes....I get the IE has encountered a problem and has to close message. I installed the SP2 from MS disk, and IE crashes. Am curious what the problem is, as I know the system is good as I once had Win 7 working(though extremely slow, and Win 7 doesn't have the LAN or sound drivers for the P4S800 motherboard.) My thought was because of older version of IE but my uncles old Acer system with XP has no problem with IE.
I'd appreciate any help or suggestions. Many thanks.
