When I say they I am referring to Microsoft. Today I upgraded to the new security pack for IE6. Ok so I am on top of things. Anyway, maybe it wasn't the new updates (I think it was) but whenever I do a search with a search engine, like google or the ie address bar) AND SEARCH "warez", INTERNET EXPLORER CLOSES! Do this: 1. type warez in the address bar of ie and search (with msn) and report what happens. (this is without the new security updates applied) or 2. If you applied the new updates, do a search for warez and tell what happens. or 3. if you dare, if you don't have the sec. updates for ie, do test 1, and if nothing peculiar happens, apply the updates and do test 2. This will see if the security updates from Microshaft are closing ie when you search for warez. Thanks.
