IE 9 and IE 10 crash on close with faulting module MSVBVM60.dll ( RRS feed

  • Question

  • When I close a specific web page from IE 10, it later crashes with message: 'Internet Explorer has stopped working'

    Details from Event Viewer:

    Faulting application name: IEXPLORE.EXE, version: 10.0.9200.16660, time stamp: 0x51f1c5f3
    Faulting module name: MSVBVM60.DLL, version:, time stamp: 0x4a5bda6c

    Web page?  Looks like a Visual Basic app?  If this is something that you trust you may change your symptom by either marking the "web page" Trusted, setting Protected Mode: Off (temporarily) or elevating the Task to be run as an administrator.  The idea would be that your Visual Basic app would be being bitten by "security/obscurity".  Then you could run ProcMon to try to figure out what is really happening.  In fact, if you don't really trust that app you should do that first.


    Good luck

  • Hi Robert,

    Thanks for your response.

    To clarify things, actually it is a VB IIS Application and I am able to open the webpage, perform some operations and log off from the application with no issues with the functionality. But after I log off and then when I close the tab, the crash occurs.

    Also the VB IIS Application has a reference to the MSVBVM60.dll

  • I'm having the same problem...IE 10 is crashing upon closing of a browser page hosting a vb6 activex control.  Were you able to resolve this?
