    I get this error message every time I close my Internet explorer. It started after I reformatted my hard drive and reinstalled everything. I have XP Pro SP2 and IE 7. Thank you.

    iexplore.exe - Application Error
    The instruction at "0x07ea9b97" referenced memory at "0x00000014". The memory could not be "read".
    Click on OK to terminate the program

    You iexplore.exe is corrupted. May be your Internet Explorer Setup.exe is not fine.

    Try to repair it. OR Download a new copy of its setup.

    You can also report to microsoft website.

    IE7 is VERY finiky. Your computer MUST be clean of ALL malware before downloading it.
    Do you have malware (spy) protection?

    It's an indication of memory corruption someplace -- perhaps virtual memory. That can be flushed ...

    But try this as a test; in IE7 you have the ability to run it without "plugins": Start > System Tools > Internet Explorer > No add-ons;

    If it doesn't happen in that mode you can selectively enable/disable add-ons to find out which one is doing it in the IE Tools > Add-ons menu.

    By the way, why did you reformat?

    It's possible you have some corrupt ram if you were having major problems previously.
