When you attempt to open Internet Explorer, you may receive the following error message:
Iexplore caused an invalid page fault in module Urlmon.dll.


This behavior can occur if there are multiple entries for QuickView Plus in the registry.


Important This section, method, or task contains steps that tell you how to modify the registry. However, serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly. Therefore, make sure that you follow these steps carefully. For added protection, back up the registry before you modify it. Then, you can restore the registry if a problem occurs. For more information about how to back up and restore the registry, click the following article number to view the article in the Microsoft Knowledge Base:
322756 How to back up and restore the registry in Windows

To resolve this behavior, remove all but one of the QuickView Plus entries from the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\InternetSettings\Accepted Documents
NOTE: In some cases, there may be only one QuickView Plus entry in the registry. Removing the entry should also resolve the behavior.
