Debug Assertion Failed! Error in Internet Explorer 7 and Google Desktop

<a href="img">"><img src="" border="0" alt="Photoserver.WS" />

<h2 style="background:none;">I am getting this error message:</h2>
<p>Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library </p>

<p>Debug Assertion Failed! </p>

<p>Program: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe </p>
<p>File: c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\include\list Line: 309 </p>
<p>Expression: list iterators incompatible </p>

<p> (Press Retry to debug the application)</p>
<p>Abort Retry Ignore</p>

<p>After troubleshooting for a while I have nailed it all the way down to "Google Desktop" creating this problem. I like Google Desktop and don't want to remove it, but every time I reinstall it, after a while the error starts popping up in Internet Explorer with no particular pattern. Has anyone encountered this error before?</p>

<p>I have Vista Ultimate Installed with SP1. I have done a clean install with only Google Desktop installed to rule out any other variable.</p>

As you are well aware of the problem

I only have two suggestions.

You could try removing the checkmark from "enable third party
browser extensions" at IE, tools menu, options advanced tab. (restart)

Or look here and let them know of your problem.

Thank you for your help. I am looking into it since I have been unable to establish a pattern for the problem, I have to wait and see if it comes up again.


I have followed both of your advice: submitted the problem to Google and made the changes on IE7. </P>


I will keep you posted on the outcome.</P>


Thanks again.</P>

Google Desktop has caused quite a few problems for users. I would have thought that more help would have been available on their site. Let us know how you get on.

Still giving me headaches....

by robert In reply to As you are well aware of ...

When I disabled the third party browser extensions the problem disappears. It is definitively the Google Add-In to IE7.

Unfortunately, when I do the above, the Google Toolbar also disappears. I love it because many times, when I need to do a search, especially for something technical, the way you word the search is crucial to find it and to narrow down the search. The ?Auto Suggest? feature of the toolbar makes my life so much easier by suggesting the wording for possible searches that I?ve become spoiled to the point that I can?t live without it. It is one of those tools that allow you to be so much more productive.

I guess I am at a point where I will have to decide to remove the Google Desktop and start getting used to the Windows Search?.. haven?t heard any comments at all about it yet?.
