IE9 32-bit crashing.

My internet explorer started crashing one day. And this error was logged in the applicaiton log.

After lot of surfing and reading through blogs. I stumbled on this solution myself. I was comparing the registry keys from my machine and another one which had IE-9 installed. I found that this key was different.

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\UnattendBackup\ActiveSetup\Home_Page]. On my machine it was set to an intranet site of our organization.I changed that to http://www.google.com. The internet explorer started working again. On the first launch it still went to the intranet default site. But was not crashing anymore.
