Since upgrading to Windows 8.1, whenever I'm using the Metro/Modern version of Internet Explorer it just randomly closes/crashes. It boots me back to the Start Screen, then restarts, opening the same tabs that were open before the crash. I can't spot any pattern to it - I'll be reading a website and it just closes, restarts, then puts the same page back up. Will work fine for a random amount of time (sometimes works fine for ages, sometimes does it several times in quick succession), then the same issue occurs. I've had it happen on a variety of websites - Neowin, the Kerbal Space Program forums, some comics and even Bing, so I can't see how it is a website specific issue.
The weird thing is, the desktop version of Internet Explorer 11 seems to be entirely unaffected. I've not had one crash with it. As a result of this I'm somewhat struggling to find any solutions, as others with issues have the opposite problem (desktop version crashing, Metro fine).
I've so far tried resetting IE to the defaults (twice), uninstalling add-ons (LastPass), removing tracking protection lists, turning off the predictive page loading feature, turning off the display tabs/url option, checked for malware, and more I can't remember.
I've checked Event Viewer, which shows the following "Application Error" records:
Faulting application name: iexplore.exe, version: 11.0.9600.16384, time stamp: 0x5215d145 Faulting module name: IEFRAME.dll, version: 11.0.9600.16412, time stamp: 0x5243e8ac Exception code: 0xc0000005 Fault offset: 0x0000000000388cba Faulting process ID: 0x1318 Faulting application start time: 0x01cecfd206022be1 Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\IEFRAME.dll Report ID: 7311934f-3bc5-11e3-be96-74d02b7a1ff8 Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID:So I'm really lost as to what to try next. Help?
