Windows XP Service Pack 2 includes a problem with Internet Explorer 7. Browsing sites including a script that uses the "removeNode" function may cause the browser to crash. Displaying the details of the error provides details including the Mshtml.dll module. The solution is to update Internet Explorer via Windows Update or installing a later Service Pack. Service Pack 2 is not an up to date fix and should be replaced with the most recent pack anyway.
Click the "Start" menu. Click the "All Programs" folder.
Click "Windows Update" to open Internet Explorer. Wait for the Windows Update program to load. Click "Yes" and "OK" to any messages that appear.
Follow the prompts to install all the available critical updates. Reboot your computer as needed.
