I get an unfamiliar error message and a browser crash whenever I attempt to reply in Hotmail. Here's the error message:

"Maxthon has blocked an Error, Fault address: 7D55B7E 01:000BAF7E C:\WINDOWS\System32\mshtml.dll"

any ideas?

'mshtml.dll' is a component of Internet Explorer, and since Maxthon uses your existing IE rendering engine (since it doesn't have it's own) the problem is actually with IE rather than Maxthon. You could confirm this by using IE instead of Maxthon, and under the same circumstances (replying in Hotmail) the same error should occur. If it does I would suggest you visit Microsoft Update (where IE is mandatory) and download/install all updates pertaining to IE.

If IE doesn't have the same problem (unlikely) you could simply use IE and ditch Maxthon. If it's IE6, you could consider updating it to IE7 which offers tabbed browsing like Maxthon so you wouldn't be losing that must-have feature.

I've also discovered that having Google Desktop installed can cause mshtml.dll errors, though it seems Google have corrected this with their latest version. I was under the impression that Google Desktop updates itself but can't confirm this as I don't use it. If you use it, it would do no harm to get the latest version and install it over your existing one.
