    Hi There

    Have been getting the following error message with IE6 ( running under XP Home );

    Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close. Sorry for the inconvienience.

    Well Microsofts code it spews out means absolutly nothing to me, and clicking close zaps the browser.

    Does anyone know why this is happening or has any idea on how its fixed?

    With regards

    is there any specific time this happens? like certain pages or java or such? and have you downloaded all the critical updates? you might try going to a command prompt and doing a

    sfc /scannow to see if any system files got fubar'ed somehow

    IE6 Errors


    Have downloaded all the critical updates etc.

    It only happens when i cannot reach a website, ie typing in the url then hitting GO, it then take a bit of time trying to load, then bombs out with the error message.

    Hope that explains it a bit clearer.
