This package with source resolves the Stack Overflow and out of memory problem with the Welcome page. The problem is an issue with the languageStrings.xsl that causes a recursive call in the startup javascript, this problem only appears in very sporadic situations. All this does is clear the IE cache of the file mentioned above...
1) use REGEDIT and go to this registry key:
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Embarcadero\BDS\XX.0\Known IDE Packages"
"HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\CodeGear\BDS\XX.0\Known IDE Packages"
where XX corresponds to your version of Rad Studio/Delphi/C++Builder
2) modify the data for this string "$(BDS)\Bin\startpageideXXX.bpl" again the value if XXX will depend of your version. Change the Data for the entry from: "Start Page IDE Package"
to "__Start Page IDE Package" (by prepending two underscores to the string)
3) start the IDE it should now start without the start up page appearing
4) Open the FixStartPage.dproj in the IDE and build the package (this presumes that you got the IDE up and running by either not showing the Start up page or disabling it in the registry)
5) in the Project Manager, right-click and choose "Install"
6) Shut the IDE down,
7) Reverse the registry modification in you did in steps 1) and 2)
8) Now every time the IDE starts the IE cache should be cleared, the Startup page should show and not cause a stack fault again.

If you only have C++Builder installed:
1) Run the "RAD Studio Command Prompt"
2) at the command prompt navigate to the location of the project file "FixStartPage.dproj"
3) then run MSBuild as follows: "MSBuild FixStartPage.dproj" without the quotes. This should build the package aka "FixStartPage.BPL".
4) in the IDE you can then install the package by going to Component | "Install Packages" | [Add...] select "FixStartPage.BPL" and click [Open] and then [OK]
5) you can now repeat the 6) - 8) of the above instructions
