    Help!!! I keep getting crashes using IE6 w/ my WinXP Home Ed. on a dual HD, where the physical D drive is dedicated to XP. While surfing the web, I will get the message that explorer has problems and will be closed, and an error log will be generated...I have encountered this several times, since receiving an automatic download and install for IE6 last week. I tried to "repair" explorer, and ran scr /scannow...but got the message "Please insert your WinXP Professional Disk"....hello!....I do NOT have XP Pro installed on my pc! I have the full home version!....How do I fix this annoying problem? I have NOT been able to find any answers to this...here is part of the error generated using drwatson:
