Visual Studio 2008 Test Edition Web Test Recorder causes Internet Explorer 7.0 crash


 

Just recently had an issue with Windows XP Professional w/SP2 and Visual Studio 2008 Test Edition recording a web test.  The user would add a new web test and when IE 7.0 was launched and the URL to the website was entered the browser would crash.

It turned out that if McAfee VirusScan 8.0i was installed this problem would occur, upgrading to 8.5i solved the problem.
