Hi having trouble with IE8- Event code ID is 1000 , Source is Application Error

Faulting application iexplore.exe . version 8.0.6001.18702, faulting module mshtml.dll version 8.0.6001.18783, fault address 0x00209d7c

Anyone have any idea how to correct? IE wont open properly and "needs to close"

You could try a few things in internet optionss:
Open up the control panel and select internet options

Under the advance tab you can reset IE to default settings
Under programs you can disable addons

Another option you could try is to reinstall IE 8

Which OS are you using, and I'd try disabling all addons/plugins like Goober suggested.

Re-installing IE often fixes most things like this, so that's a good option too

Mshmtl.dll (Microsoft HTML Viewer) problems are not limited to IE; they can be experienced with any software product that uses that library, ie Outlook, Live Messenger, etc.

I'd recommend trying to replace it.

When I did a fresh install of Windows 7 RC1, I couldn't launch IE8 at all without it crashing. This was after clean install without any extra software installed. I don't remember whether it was related to mshtml.dll because I'm so used to IE crashing on me that I don't much pay attention to it, but I can tell you that I haven't had any issues with IE8 since I switched to a newer build of the RC1, the 7137, which, I believe, also comes with an updated version of IE8.

My point here is that I think you might be able to simply replace the mshtml.dll with a newer one, in case it's old and/or corrupt.

My mshtml.dll is of version 8.0.7137. Depending on your OS you may have two of them. If you're using a 32-bit it's probably just the one in Windows\System32. Check the file's properties for version number although I'm pretty sure it's that 8.0.6001.18783 shown in your error message.

Make sure you have all patches installed from Microsoft Update.

Run REGSVR32 Mshtml.dll via console in Windows\System32 just to be sure.

Mainly, replace the mshtml.dll with either another of the same version or, if compatible with your OS, an updated one.

Thanks Core-Replaced Mshtml.dll file and ran REGSVR32 Mshtml.dll and it was successful.
Long and short of it, back in business. I noticed my event log showed Microsoft IE8 Update on date everything went downhill. I wonder if that had anything to do about problem, as I just noticed same update wants to install??? please let me know your thoughts.

Normally I run all patches WU has available but if I used IE8 I wouldn't install that one. I've heard of a lot of people having had problems with IE8 after applying that patch. As always, YMMV.

Hi, when you go to one of these site switch IE8 into 'compatability' mode and the site should hopefully display correctly.

I too have noticed on some vBulletin sites that IE8 doesn't display 100% correctly but by adding that site's URL to the compatability mode list generally sorts the problem.
