Windows 7 & IE 8 Validation Errors RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    Yesterday I installed Windows 7 RC (Build 7100) onto a toshiba laptop. Today, when I've been adding applications, such as Office 2007, VS 2008 to the machine and been using IE to browse the web I have been experiancing lots of Validation Errors. 90% of them have stemmed from within IE but a couple of been caused by Explorer.exe

    the IE ones take the following format:

    Proccess Name: iexplore.exe
    Assert offset: 000120DF   << The value here is not the same each time.

    the two methods that I know have forced the error are:
    1) when using google as the search provider and typing in the inbuilt search box
    2)Closing the IE Browser while doing a download (i.e. leaving the download dialog open)

    Any ideas as to the cause of this problem or any solutions. I did search the forum a bit, as well as the internet to try and find solutions.

  • Hi,


    Thanks for posting in Microsoft TechNet Forum.


    You need to install updates for Windows Internet Explorer.


    A Compatibility View list update is available for Windows Internet Explorer 8: May 5, 2009



    Meanwhile, you need to fix the incompatibility problems between Internet Explorer 8 and the Google Toolbar.
