Whenever i have more than one browser open, (even if i click on a link & it opens a page) IE crashes. Even if a pop-up advert apppears, IE crashes. I have to press Ctrl Alt Del, and end the task, causing IE to close completley, and have to re open it. PLEASE HELP ME. Does anyone have this problem. I never had this problem before with Win XP PRO.

if that doesn't help, update your virus definitions, and do a scan.

and, everybody roll their eyes here;

at the beginning of xp, when all the sites were recomending a small static pagefile, everyone's ie was crashing.

the incidences stopped when everyone went back to default pagefile settings, so...just a wild guess...how much ram do you have/

anyway, let us know

Also have you installed or started using any helper files/proggies???

Did anything else crash or get messed up before this started to happen?

I did notice with my system once (XP Pro), my browser locked up a few times and after that it seemed that the drive that it was on was fragmented quite a bit. I don't remember if it was IE or another browser, but I defragged and the browser started working fine again.

I don't know if your temp internet files and browser cache has something to do with it??? If my thoughts on this part are way off base some please say so. :cool:

My logical thoughts if I came across a problem like that.

1) Trojan scan.
2) Virus scan.
3) XP Service Patch 1.
4) All else fails? :eek: ....reformat and reinstall.

ENTER
