Default A request to disable the Desktop Window Manager was made by process...


Hi there,

I have a Vista Business Laptop at work that keeps crashing IE8 or FF3.5.1
when opening a web-ordering website - IE8/FF3.5 just keeps opening and
closing...

Looking at the Event Log it has the following info:

- System
- Provider
[ Name] Desktop Window Manager
- EventID 9010
[ Qualifiers] 16384
Level 4
Task 0
Keywords 0x80000000000000
- TimeCreated
[ SystemTime] 2009-07-24T15:09:55.000Z
EventRecordID 5105
Channel Application
Computer GillM_Vista.somedomain.local
Security
- EventData
Windows Internet Explorer 8

There are other event messages which have the following:

A request to disable the Desktop Window Manager was made by process
(Firefox)

or
The Desktop Window Manager was unable to start because composition was
disabled by a running application


Searched online for "A request to disable the Desktop Window Manager was
made by process" and got returned a fair number of sites but nothing with
was caused by "Internet Explorer 8" or "Firefox".


Can anyone give me any pointers to how I can fix this issue...

Many thanks in advance.

MDA
