Any help would be appreciated: IE6 is locking up solid!! Cannot cntrl-alt-del to shut it down. Mouse is hung, no keyboard responce. I have to power down to and reboot (pull the plug). I let the system sit for a while but to no avail. This has happened 7 times in the last day. Number 7 was while typing this post the first time. (I swear XP is screwing with me!!) Worse yet, when I reboot the system goes along like nothing happened! No scan disk, no message about windows recovering from a serious error....nothing. It just starts again and has not kept any changes that I might have made during the session like an installed piece of hardware. Background: This is a FRESH install of XP on a machine that was running fine on an upgrade of XP from ME. That was little buggy but NEVER locked up. I did this fresh install yesterday in the am. I started fresh by booting from the CD, formating C:\, chose NTFS and gave XP its own 10 gig partion. Then, after the install, all programs have been re-installed one by one on a different 10 gig partition. Everything works fine but this one issue. Any help, thoughts, ideas? System: Gateway AMD 1.2 GHz, 768 mb RAM, 2 ata100 hardrives 20 and 60 gigs, Flat panel with an ATI 64 meg Raedon 7000 VE, CDR, DVD. HELP!
