It may or may not be a virus. If it is a virus, it will NOT be easy to get rid of it. Download and run (free) SuperAntiSpyware:
http://www.superantispyware.com/?tag=GOOGLE-SUPERANTISPYWARE
or similar program.
Don't get your hopes up, though. Not that SuperAntiSpyware isn't a good free program, it will find it and remove it, but the virus is so vicious that most any spyware/antvirus program can't remove all of it. There's always that one little registry entry that can't be found. So, IF it is a virus, and IF SuperAntiSpyware or similar program can't get rid of it (it comes back after being removed), don't waste any more time! You'll need to erase your hard drive (using Sure Delete or similar program) and do a clean install of the operating system...of course, after backing up your existing files up first. Be careful not to drag the virus with you.

It may also just be a recently installed (or _uninstalled_) program that is messing up the works. If so, try uninstalling that program and use another similar program.

If you recently _uninstalled_ a program, you can try a registry cleaner. I use eusing.com's registry cleaner.

After all that, you will probably have to go to start>run>type in: cmd > type in: sfc/scannow (Have your installation cd ready.) to replace any system files that may have been damaged or deleted either by the registry cleaner or other "defective" software when it was installed or removed.

Additionally, (I can't remember what it is for Vista, so this is for XP, but should be similar in Vista) go to: start>settings(classic view)control panel>administrative tools>event viewer>applications
Post back any warnings you see (in full), as there may be a specific application that is causing the problem. That "problem" application may be spyware or a third party application that is not compatible with Vista.

IF you hold down the "Ctrl" and "Alt" keys and hit the "Del" key, select "task manager" info in there may help idenify the problem process or application.
Here's the Microsoft website for problems with Windows Vista:

Try it, it may work for you.

    Many times a lot of problems can be solved just by going to the Windows Update site and manually downloading updates and keep going back until no more updates are offered. This is a known issue and the fix may be in one of the updates.

Hi! IE 8 has some errors / bugs in genuine itself, so if there is any bug in system, then these both errors lead to IE struck mode.

please consider to remove the present IE and try to install IE 6 or IE 7 for the time being that to if you want to do in IE, otherwise try to opt for Mozilla or chrome.

but the word "APPcrash" represents word of "application crash", so better to install fine one before complete uninstall of present one.

Don't forget to mention error code in next reply mail if the problem still exists with above operations!

APPCRASH


Do a recovery at boot up. You are missing files for some reason. IE can't find what it needs. Either some kind of virus got it or you have a programming error. Do a Recovery at boot up. Immediately after the recovery, scan for viruses.
