ha!!

you know, when the pseudo experts were trying to tell everybody to lower their pagefile, everyone was reporting ie crashing all the time...nobody associated the two

mine too crashed back then

but since that myth ws proved harmfull, and most people now understand the folly of a small pagefile, ie hardly crashes at all.

mine has not crashed in who knows how long?

well, you can crash your ie with three strokes

hit control f (I'm counting this as one stroke)

now, type a word that is not on the page into the search box...it must be a word that is not on the page.(I'm counting this as the second stroke)

when the box pops up fininnished, hit f1

crash


tee hee hee

supposedly, this will crash on some boxes, and not others.

I have xp pro, amd processor

I just swapped out my ram, and am now running 256 for a while

I'd like to figure out why this crashes some, and not others, so if this does not crash your ie, then tell me your stats...maybe we can figure this one out, and it will give other benedfit

well, I guess more people do not crash then do, so this is probably not something we can figure out

oh well, carry on somewhere else then:confused:

AAAH what the heck?

Ok Dealer, you told everyone wrong. You said in your first post to press F11, not F1. My IE crashes when I push F1.

you probably have a corrupt fll. Try opening up a DOS prompt and re-registering these dll's by typing in exactly and hitting Enter after each one:

regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
regsvr32 Shell32.dll
regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
regsvr32 Urlmon.dll

You'll have to reboot. If it's still crashing try downloading the correct ver. dll's for your OS into your system32 folder. Then you would have to repeat above and reboot. This solved my problem.

I had shdocvw.dll crashing everytime, my version didn't match with IE6, I thought that was a new feature in IE6 SP1 ;-P
If all else fails, I'd do like Microsoft and reinstall
