Symantec Intrusion Prevention plugin crashing IE7
I noticed today that IE7 is instantly crashing/closing when I tried to load a particular site. I'm running XP Pro, fully updated, have rebooted, and have run Live Update on NIS2010. It didn't happen in IE7's No-Addins mode, so I started disabling plugins to see what was the cause.
Turns out it's the Symantec Intrusion Prevention plugin... disable that and the sites load without crashing. I appear to be able to leave the other Symantec plugin enabled as well.
The sites (actually specific pages on certain sites) I've noticed so far are:
Any ideas? It crashes IE7 without an error message, so I don't know what other information I can include.
Edit: I got it to throw an error, but the contents weren't that useful (couldn't be cut and paste and were a massive long list of loaded files). With this error, the event viewer did log the following:
Faulting application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.17091, faulting module unknown, version 0.0.0.0, fault address 0x05959df2.
Again not especially useful.
