So I'm sitting here trying to get the Windows Live OneCare version 1.6 story up on the front page, and I can't figure out why Internet Explorer 7 keeps crashing. I've never ever seen it crash before. And yet, it always seems to happily commit suicide right before I'm done putting the news article together. I finally track the problem down to the fact I keep launching the OneCare home page to grab the link.
Yes, you read correctly. It would appear that Microsoft's Windows Live OneCare home page causes IE7 64bit to crash. I took the liberty of downloading Firefox x64 to make sure it had nothing to do with 64bit web browsers in general. Nope, Firefox loaded the page just fine. How embarrassing for Microsoft. The issue has been reproduced on two separate Windows Vista machines with entirely different configurations. Can anyone confirm the issue with IE7 x64 on XP?
Note: On Vista x64, IE7 32bit will load the site correctly.
