    Default SDhelper.dll Causing IE 7 Final to Crash!

    I just installed IE 7 Final on Windows XP Home SP2 and for what ever reason when I have a few tabs open and go to close IE 7 with a few tabs open IE 7 crashes. And the error says its caused by SDhelper.dll

    Download crash info here

    it looks like the SDHelper.dll file that blocks "bad downloading" of IE is not compatible with IE7.

    from the Tools section of Spybot 1.4, click on Resident to open the Resident section and UNcheck the SDHelper option to disable Resident SDHelper protection for IE. hopefully IE7 will work without crashing your XP machine

    see if this helps you out, gate1975mlm

    Default Spybot & IE 7

    I'm curious how many people have this issue. I had brief access to a machine with both after I saw this thread, so I tried to beat it death with about 8 or 9 windows and about 8 or 9 tabs in the 1st window. No problem, but I didn't have time to test very long.

    How fast were your XP SP2 PCs, tashi?

    we may also have to ask gate1975mlm how fast his XP computer is [aka. CPU type & speed and how much RAM is installed]

    I'll see if I can test out Spybot 1.4 with IE7 on my XP SP2 home PC which is a custom-made computer 1.2Ghz Pentium 3 with 384 MB of RAM, 40Gb HD

    I now have installed the final release of IE7 on my XP SP2 home ed. computer, tested Spybot 1.4 with SDHelper disabled first, ran IE7 with a bunch of tabs open & closed IE7. no crash. I enabled SDHelper in Spybot, ran IE7 with several tabs open and exited IE7. again no crash. the crash might be machine specific.

    it would have been nice if gate1975mlm gave specs on his XP computer (cpu type/speed, hard drive brand/capacity and amount of RAM installed)
