This is not a spyware or temporary internet files problem, I am a developer at a large website and the few clients who receive this error get it on every IE browser they encounter (we have logged in as them in a lot of places). I figured I would get that clear from the start.

The problem is probably related to iframes and some DHTML, but it works well in Mozilla Firefox for all. When IE (6) is used to access the page, the page freezes and the error that is submitted to Microsoft is this:

szAppName : IEXPLORE.EXE     szAppVer : 6.0.2900.2180     szModName : hungapp
szModVer : 0.0.0.0     offset : 00000000

Please help. We advertise that Internet Explorer is the browser of choice for our app and currently are pointing these few people to Mozilla as a work around. Does anyone know what can cause this error when using DHTML with iframes

A quick overview is that I am creating a page with a series of divs (call these outer_div for this discussion) each containing an iframe 1px by 1px. The iframe src is a page that returns a div (call this inner_iframe_div for this discussion) and an onload functinality that takes the innerHTML of the 'inner_iframe_div' and puts it as the innerHTML of the div that contained the iframe to begin with.

in other words the iframe src has similar code to this: onLoad="parent.outer_div.innerHTML = inner_iframe_div.innerHTML";

dont hold me to context here...this is just to explaint ot you that the iframes parent div content is replaces by the iframes child div content (eliminating the iframe) on load of the iframe src. It works and works well, except for these few people in IE.

This works for 98% of the cases. 3 of our customers get the above error in therir account after the page loads (and surprosingly all the content comes back from the iframes into the parent divs) and it is happening wherever they log in.

So, this instability is causing me a lot of stress today, would someone please help

For the past 3 days I have been driven crazy by this same problem. It got so bad that every page I visited would freeze then crash and always the cause was "hungapp" or ntdll.dll. I did everything to try and fix the problem but visiting forums and websites with advice became impossible as the page would crash. I don't think it's caused by a virus or any malaware, adware or spyware but then again I am not a computer expert. I do wonder if registry keys are somehow involved. I didn't think to adjust or upgrade my java. I even downloaded a process monitor to try and pinpoint the problem area but all to no avail. I was to the point of reformatting the computer or throwing it in the pool...lol. I have now changed my browser from IE7 to Mozilla and so far so good. I still get it happening now and again so I would like to find a more permanent solution to this problem. I would appreciate any input you can give and I hope this helps to give some at least a temporary solution to this problem.

Cheers.

Had the same problem: please put this search in Google and run the IEfix utility:
