A version of IE is 8.0.6001.18702 and here is a screenshot with a VS 2005 Call Stack:
Not worth looking into in my opinion. XP is EOL with extended support ending in April of next year. IE 8 may still have ~10% market share worldwide, but there are newer and better options regardless of what OS you run. Google does not support IE8 in thier web services and I see no reason Intel should either. Its an old non-compliant browser on an old OS, time to upgrade.

Your opinion is very important. However, Windows XP and IE 8 are supported until March 2014 and so far Microsoft has Not marked these products with an End of Life ( EOL ) status and updates on Windows Updates website are available.
So, let's Intel managers and developers decide what needs to be done and if there is a possible bug in IDZ web-application it needs to be fixed. If there is a bug it is still the bug. Period.
By the way, ALL financial institutions in a country where I live still support Windows XP operating system and IE 8.
I have reported this to our development people and will keep you informed of updates.

Can you more precisely narrow down what might be happening/what you are doing at the time of the crash, that might help.
