Internet Explorer and Office Documents - SysFader: iexplore.exe - Application Error

I was getting the error below from Internet Explorer when I would try to open a Word Document (or any other Office document) through Internet Explorer.  Apparently this is because I have a mized Office environment.  I installed OneNote 2007 but the rest of my Office (Word, Excel, Outlook, etc.) is Office 2003.  As mentioned in this post renaming the OWSSUPP.DLL found here:  
  • C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12

to another name will solve the problem.

SysFader: iexplore.exe - Application Error
The exception unknown software exception (0xc06d007f) occurred in the application at location 0x77e55e02.

Hi Peter,

Rename the file C:\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\OWSSUPP.DLL to something like OWSSUPP.DLL.OLD

To remove the sysfader.exe error, I have the download of IE8, do the uninstall via control panel then install IE8 let remove the current version (update of IE7 to IE8) then once it has installed, go back and reinstall via windows components then reboot, updates will filter in and IE will be stable again?? It has worked for me for you?????
