Hi Dave Clarke,
I am very sorry to hear you continue to have problems with the Verification Builder. Could you send us another sample page, this time of your complex page? Open your complex page that is giving you problems in IE (not in our recorder), select Save As from the menu in IE, then select "Webpage, complete". This will create both a file and a folder we can use to load your complex page, study it and reproduce the problem you are experiencing. Please place them into a .zip file and attach it to a new support ticket that we can track and get resolved for you.
For the VS 2008 stability problem, can you tell me more about this please? If I understand correct, VS is crashing and then Windows is automatically restarting VS for you, correct? Can you tie the crash to any specific action i.e. what were you doing at the time of the crash? I'd like to try and reproduce this if I can. So far you're the only person reporting VS2008 stability problems like this so I'll need your help identifying what's causing the crash.
