I have two computers with the same sympton... Everthing worked fine the last time I tried to record a script, now the IE browser (6.2 sp2) crashes regardless what I do, if I have QTP 8.2 open. If I close QTP, then the browser is ok... I can no longer record anything as the browser crashes at the very start of the recording, can't even load the web page...
Yeah, I seem to be facing similar issue on one of my machines. As soon as QTP 8.2 is started it crashes the Explorer.exe and taskbar disappears. It was a fresh on the machine with XP Prof SP2.
Mike you using FF? I noticed this issue started happening when I installed an add-on...
Edit: Might also want to check that your system supports the minimal specs for QTP. Mine only has 504 MB, I believe 512MB is the minimal
