Win7 x64 IE problem

Recommended Posts

I have been having a problem on 2 different computers, one at home and one at the office. They are doth running Win7 x64, one is pro and the other is ultimate. The problem I am having is after a while, my IE stops working. It works fine after a reboot, but after a while when I open it (it could be a day or a couple of days) it just sits there like it is trying to open the page but it never does. I don't think that is is a networking issue because I can still open shared folders from my server. Does anyone have any ideas?

i would say first disable any add-ons that might be running in IE, then see if you can get it to crash again.

I've tried that, the problem still happens.

Can you get a hang dump of the iexplore.exe process the next time it happens? IE is an x86 process (even on x64 Win7), so download and install the x86 debugging tools (using the instructions linked).

For now, the .dmp file should be sufficient. Zip it up, and then put it somewhere we can get to if you can.

I didn't see anything obvious in either dump (in fact, the browser was completely idle). However, I could tell that approximately 1 hour had passed since the browser last attempted something, and *something* had spawned a worker thread in both the frame and tab processes (but possibly died out). I took the stack base and stack limit for that thread, and found this in the frame process:

I found this in the tab process, confirming an RPC call likely to spawn the xmllite thread in the frame proc:

It looks as if xmllite was loaded for something, IE went down into the network (winsock) stack, and there was some exception that caused a debug break. However, since no debugger was attached, you probably have a "hung" process waiting for commands from a non-existant debugger. Also, I noted that the stack base in the tab process was invalid, which could mean something bad happened while the thread was being created, but in any case a static dump of this probably isn't sufficient to show the issue. It'll probably take someone at the console when the problem first occurs to dump it then, if that's even possible.

It could be an xmllite issue, but I don't think that's likely. Is it always the same website that's up when the browser hangs?

I have found that the problem is with my Avast antivirus. When I have the problem with IE, I can stop the Avast on access protection then reopen IE and it will open fine, then re-enable Avast and all is well for a while.
