I am using IE6 with winxp prof. When i hv two or more site open or an ad site pops up, if i close any site or ad pop up, IE comes with message 'IE has encounteed a problem and will close down' n the it closes. I hv to re open IE. Any work, message etc being worked is lost. Can u suggest any remedy and cause of it
In IE if i hv two sites open n close one, IE closes too and have reopen IE and any earlier work is lost, soln?windows xp
i would probably download IE7. even when microsoft claims something is still supported it often stops caring about it very quickly.

This is most likely caused by a browser "add-on" These are things that you add to your browser like toolbars.
Here is what I did to fix the problem:
Click on "tools" and then click on "manage add-ons" then select "enable or disable add-ons"
On the next screen disable ALL of your add-ons then close IE down completely. Reopen IE and then open a few websites. then try closing one. If your browser stays open then go back to your add-ons and enable them one at a time.
Note that each time you enable an add-on you will have to close your browser completely for the change to take affect.
Depending on how many add-ons you have this could take a little time but once you find the one that is causing the problem you can keep it disabled and then your browser should work fine.
Does this happen with any other applications? If so, I would not rule out the possibility that this is hardware related instead of software -- sounds like you could have a corrupted stick of RAM in your computer.
Do as the previous poster suggested and get the upgrade to IE7 -- it should replace any corrupted files and fix the issue. If it doesn't, look into your hardware.
