Why does msvcrt.dll cause Internet Explorer 9 to crash?

For the past 3 weeks, I’ve been experiencing IE9 crashes within a few seconds after opening IE9, no matter which website.

My PC has Windows 7 Ultimate SP1.

Checking the Event Manager brings up the following error:

??Application: iexplore.exe
Module: msvcrt.dll

Exception: 0xc0000005
Displacement: 0x00009c7f
Process ID: 0x964
Application Path: C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
Module path: C:\Windows\system32\msvcrt.dll

I’ve disabled all addons and restored IE to its default settings to no avail. I feel that this problem began after a regular Windows 7 update. I checked the update log and all items were correctly installed.

Thank you.
