Every time I go on a forum I frequent, I always get a Microsoft Visual C++ Debug Library Message

Here is exactly what it says:

Debug Assertion Failed!

Program: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
File: c:\program files\microsoft visual studio 8\vc\include\xtree
Line: 293

Expression: map/set iterators incompatible

For information on how your program can cause an assertion failure, see the Visual C++ documentation on asserts.

(Press Retry to debug the application)

 

I have no idea what C++ is or anything so if anyone could help me, it'd be great. I don't have microsoft visual studio 8 or whatever, I don't think.

 

Thank you!

Re: IE Help - Debug Assertion Failed

I get this in Firefox and Chrome - notably Chrome when it pops up every 10th page or so. I don't have Visual Studio and regularly clean out my system with Search&Destroy, AVG, CCleaner etc. If I click Ignore Chrome crashes but Firefox plods on for a while then crashes too. Ho hum.

Re: IE Help - Debug Assertion Failed

have you tried checking in Tools|Internet Options|Advanced and UNchecking the "enable debugging" and "display script errors" boxes?
The other option might be to stop using internet exploder and use Firefox instead..

Re: IE Help - Debug Assertion Failed

I was about to ask you if you joined the Darkside and went to IE...  didn't know IE had that option... lol...

Figures... Microsoft and Microsoft....

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool, than to speak and remove all doubt.

Re: IE Help - Debug Assertion Failed

What do you use Microsoft Visual C++ for? (if this is what you said you don't have, check your program list, or go to Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and check in there)

You could just uninstall it... That or there might be a setting that's set to automatically debug things... I'll check mine out to see if I find anything. 

I've never gotten an error message that had already attempted to debug, just one that gives me the option if something shuts down all of a sudden...

C++ is a programming language!

Re: IE Help - Debug Assertion Failed

could be a poorly programmed ActiveX object, possibly malware of some sort. i would suggest running 'Adware' and 'SpyBot Search & destroy' (or equivalent), clean out your IE temp folder and remove any unneeded ActiveX objects.

GUG has a great thread on Spyware and Viruses Explained that you may want to read as well.

I have tried malaware removal as well as an anti-virus removal and with no success!..THis only started after I did updates.

Re: IE Help - Debug Assertion Failed
Same here. I just downloaded the update to Adobe Acrobat, and now I'm getting this error -- it's driving me crazy already! I can't visit any site without it popping up. Clicking on "retry" is the only selection that keeps it from popping up. That is, until I click to a new screen, hit "back", select another link. Ugh! >.<
