While loading/viewing a web-page, using Microsoft Internet Explorer Version 7, under Windows Vista (4=WindowsNT, 5=Windows2000, 7=Windows7), it "crashed".

Try the same web-page from another computer also running Vista and IE7. If it works, then something on your computer is the problem.

Restart your computer, and try again to access the same web-page.
If you get the same problem, upgrade to Internet Explorer 8, and try again.
If you still get the same problem, contact the author of the web-page, and get them to investigate.
