Try updating Visual Studio to SP4 and IE to version 6.

Most problems like this are contributed by DLL hell. Update your system to
windows 2000 which fixes it.

And when the next nt comes out, they say ohhh well to fix this thing you need to upgrade.

I have installed SP4 and upgraded to IE6 i dont have a copy of win2k so...

And it is still crashing, and it has only been happening since i installed visual studio.

Anyone know what the hell is wrong with them

Sounds like either a corrupted installation, or you need to clean your registry out. The final solution might be to format you hard drive and reinstall. Try RegVac www.regvac.com - it can search for bad registry keys, which may fix your problem.

Good luck.

I have formatted sice the problem first occured, infact i have upgraded most of the parts inside my comp, and the problem is still there, so it shoudnt be a corrupt instalation. Or reg keys as i have reinstalled it about 5 times.

Anyone have any ideas...

Have you searched on Microsofts site for any conflicts between IE and VS? You could maybe give them a call. Sorry, but if you did a format (not just a reinstall), then either there is an error on the installation disk of VS, or your hard drive is stuffed and you need to buy a new one. Anyone else got any idea's?
