IE9 Beta Crashes on every page with Intel Express 4 Chipset Graphics

I have a Dell Lattitude E5400 running Windows 7 x64 and decided to try the IE9 beta that has just been released. Unfortuneatly, the browser crashed on every page load. After some investigation I found it was caused by my graphics driver. The E5400 uses the Intel GMA graphics driver from the Express 4 chipset.

Problem driver version was 8.15.10.2141.

Working driver version is 8.15.10.2202.

You can get the new driver here:
