Unbelievable: ALL of IE8/FireFox3.5.1/Chrome2.0.172.37 CRASH when I press CTRL to open a link in a new tab on Windows 7 Ultimate RC RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm new to Windows 7. I began from RC. Last weekend, I installed RC on my new laptop. In the past week, I suffered a terrible crash experience with various browers on Win7RC.

    First, I used Chrome and it crashed!
    Second, I used FireFox and it crashed too!
    Third, I would like to try Safari and Opera but I gave up....
    Forth, I have to directly pick up IE8 and it crashed TOO.  MY GOD!

    All the brands of browsers crash, when I try to press CTRL to open a link in a new tab, when I try to press CTRL+T to open a new blank tab, when I try to fire some shotcut ....
    The crash won't happen when I open the first page in the first tab. But it happens when there are some other pages open in tabs. I aslo observe these pages may contain ActiveX, Flash, Silverlight.

    Here are 3 three event log for the three brands of browsers. All the errors happen regarding with the module: C:\Windows\system32\kernel32.dll

    IE

  • Today I figure this out finally. It's caused by the incompatibility of PowerWordLite developed by Kingsoft and Google on Windows 7.  It would be more terrible on the 64-bit edition.

  • I am experiencing the same chrasing too... but I really need to use this PowerWordLite... Does PowerWordLite has some upgrades to support Win 7 or Vista now?

    Thanks!

  • On the offical page http://g.iciba.com/, it says the latest stable version 1.95 supports Vista, but no Win 7.
    On the 2.0 beta2 page http://g.iciba.com/beta/, the team blog says they are trying to approach Win 7 on the coming version 2.
    In my test, version 2 beta2 still has incompatiblilty with Chrome. It cause Chrome to crash occasionally. FireFox/IE looks well.
