Internet Explorer 8 crashed after going to Tools, and Manage Add-ons on two Windows 7 64-bit computers with EMET 3.0 installed


  • EMET notifier popped-up with DEP and mandatory ASLR mitigation errors for iexplore.exe.  Also, got the below error in the App event viewer.  When I disabled ASLR and DEP for iexplore I can go to Manage Add-ons without IE crashing, but that defeats the purpose of EMET.

  • Hi WSSupport,

    This is a known issue with IE8. The normal operation of IE8 shouldn't be affected, just the Manage Add-Ons page.
