    Like something out of the redundancy from the redundancy department in the
    redundancy ministry I got this message recently from IE 7:

    The exception unknown software exception (0x0eedfade) occurred in the
    application at location 0x7c812a5b.

    Anyone with any insights as to what this means and how I can go about fixing

    This behavior is most often caused by an add-on that is incompatible
    with IE 7. See if the behavior persists when running IE 7 in 'No
    add-ons' mode.

  3. I know of two causes for the vast majority of such problems:
    1. Incompatible add-ons: What if you right click the IE icon on the desktop
    and choose Start Without Add-ons?
    Or go to Start | All Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet
    Explorer (No Add-ons).

    2. Malware already installed on the computer: Help with malware
    All MS-MVP Sites.

    Unexplained computer behavior may be caused by deceptive software.

    So How Did I Get Infected Anyway?
    For quite a few people it's by installing Messenger Plus, whose ads for
    malware don't identify the malware as such and try to convince you that you
    owe it to the author. See also:
    Don't ever do a "default" install of anything. Always choose Custom and see
    what else is being carried along. Don't install any extras you're not sure
