Possible Conflct With Internet Explorer and EMET on W8.1

Postby nesivos » Fri Jun 12, 2015 9:37 pm

This problem does not exist on my W7-SP1 computers only my Windows 8.1 computers.

Internet Explorer 11
EMET 5.2

I start IE and it freezes. I get an error message that the program has stopped working then another message to close the program; i.e., Internet Explorer

I have done a couple of clean installs of W8.1 for other reasons and IE works until right after I install EMET 5.2 and Crypto Prevent using the default settings. I always install Crypto Prevent last when doing a clean install. I am using the default settings in IE and EMET which includes protection for IE. I also have the Windows sidebar blocked in CP. Set during the install.

I checked the Windows Event log and this is what I got. Below it are the settings for IE in EMET.

I have posted this on Microsoft Answers but so far the only response I have gotten is to reset IE to its default settings which is impossilble for me to do in the program since it freezes right after the home page MSN.com opens.

Any ideas?
Could there be something in Crypto Prevent which is causing a conflict?

Any help you can give would be appreciated. Thanks

looks like emet64.dll is causing error, i would reset Internet settings through control panels "Internet options".
is emet an Anti-Virus package?
have you tried not installing cryptoprevent or can you undo/disable it to see if it's that?
not sure if windows-apppatch-apppatch64 would be a blocked location but it would rule it out.
