    Hi,

    Welcome to discussions

    Help others to help you by posting what you have tried to stop the crashing.

    In mac, cleaning up internet clutter has been known to help.
    Cookies, cache, Icons folder etc...

    Enable the debug Menu in Safari that may help, if like Mac there are net files there you can empty.

    To enable the Safari debug menu on Windows

    C:\"Program Files"\Safari\Safari.exe /enableDebugMenu

    See Macosxhints for more details, on how to use the command.

    Ok leave I you to the Window users hope someone can help you get it sorted, albeit i hope something I posted helps.

    1) My post was not directed at you, or to your issue, was it?

    2) Safari needs to be quit to apply the Debug..

    3) Safari does not need to be launched to clean internet clutter.

    4) Try being polite, your frustration does not give you the divine right to flame me or others trying to help.

    I am having the same problem. I am running Vista 64-bit, and the debug switch does nothing. Also, I have tried making a symlink to the Safari directory in Program Files to check for hardcoded pathnames; this does nothing either. Safari has not run AT ALL.

    Are you running Vista 64-bit or 32-bit?

    Hi,

    You're welcome. From the apple developer site....

    "To display the debug menu in Safari 3.0 for Windows, use a text editor to add the following to the Preferences.plist file located at C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\Safari\Preferences\Preferences.plist :"

    <key>IncludeDebugMenu</key>
    <true/>


    Good luck, Hope that helps.
