Help needed! I am one of those guys that has to use a Windows machine at Work. So I have a Windows 7 64-bit OS on my work laptop. I use Safari at home on my Macs. Since I have a browser choice, I surely want to use Safari 5 on my Windows 7 machine but so far I am having no luck. Safari runs for X minute (time varies) and then all of sudden crashes with a message "Safari has stopped working." I have uninstalled Safari, manually cleaned up all the Safari folders that go into user account preferences, ran a registry cleaner via WinUtilities so that all traces of Safari are gone. Then did a fresh install with Administrator privileges (I even tried the install with my own login ID) but either way the result is the same -- Safari 5 crashes at random. What can I do to make Safari 5 on Windows 7 stable? Please advice.

Thank you!

    I would like to see some reply on this because I'm having the exact same problem (including the obligation to Windows lol)

    Fingers crossed, the problem reports for those errors might cast some fresh light on the source of the problem.

    Head into your Problem Reports and Solutions control panel (or the Windows 7 equivalent ... the Action Center?) and look for recent Safari problem reports. Open them up and look through. Do they all seem to be saying the same thing? If so, paste the contents of a typical problem report into a reply here so we can have a look.
