I have windows XP Pro and I downloaded Safari 3 because I am a Mac user and I wanted Safari on my XP machine. I crashes every time that I try to open it up. It pops up the box Safari has a problem do I want to send it to Microsoft. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I built the computer, Windows XP Pro

    Just wanted to add some of my own experiences to this.

    Crashes when accessing Java/JavaScript pages.

    Also found issues with username/passwords in the urls.

    Crashes on Sharepoint with authentication.

    Crashes on Citrix MPFS4.0 web interface.

    Maybe some of this applies to you.

    Same here. It seems like WinSafari is having the same troubles of the first edition of iTunes 7.2, which didn't work on older processors.

    I can't login to our proxy.

    As soon as I enter my details and click login the app crashes.

    I am having this same problem - "Safari has encountered a problem and needs to close" blah blah

    I agree with Federico Parodi, it looks very like the problem with iTunes 7.2.0.35, which has now been fixed.
    That crash was apparently caused by "an SSE instruction set that is not present on some older CPUs". For some reason, Apple do not have any hardware that matches this configuration in their QA lab. Any Apple techs looking might wanna check that out.
    Only difference I notice is that, for me, Safari looks as though it's about to load, then crashes. With the iTunes crash, it went straight to the error with no delay. I just see the top of the Safari window, then it crashes. Still, it looks similar.
    Oh well - firefox is probably better anyway.

    Yes. I have the same problem; I just installed the beta of Safari for Windows on my Pentium 2 400 MHz machine. It rune windows XP Pro and crashed instantly. However, I also installed it on my XP Home 3 GHz system and it runs fine; i thing it does have something to do with an SSE instruction.

    I'm running on Vista Ultimate on an Intel Core2Duo E6600, hardly an old CPU and Safari crashes me instantly when I launch the program

    I'm having the same problem here...

    I'm quite disappointed. I would expect that from Microsoft, but not from Apple.

    The problem is probably not the processor, since a friend with a Duron could get it to work.

    Indeed, this does appear to be another case of the dreaded SSE instruction bug, at least from what I can tell.

    The exception code in the crash report that I'm encountering is 0xc000001d (illegal instruction) - just like in the iTunes bug.

    The exception occurs in Virtual PC for PowerPC Mac (which has no support for SSE instructions), but I don't get the error on a real Pentium 3.

    Apparently Durons do support SSE instructions, or at least there were several references to such support that I found with a Google search.
