IE6 Shuts Down in some websites


Susan S

Having a problem on a Win 98 SE machine running IE6. IE
shuts down unexpectedly when going from page to page
within some, but not all, websites. I get the message
that it has "experienced a problem and must shut down".
The error signature is App Name: iexplore.exe AppVer:
6.0.2800.1106 ModName: msvcrt.dll ModVer: 6.1.8293.0
Offset: 00015ca2
Have tried reinstalling, running the detect and repair,
to no avail. Any ideas?

Let AD-Aware Scan your system for advertising Spyware

If you use a HOSTS file, beware of this new issue.
Ad-Aware has decided to include a new detection when scanning the HOSTS
file. This now creates a "Bad hosts file entry" in the log file generated at
the end of a scan. The best thing to do is to place a check in each entry,
right-click and select: "Add selection to ignorelist". Otherwise if you let
AWW "fix" these items it will trash the HOSTS file! Even if you have it
"locked" by [example] SpywareBlaster or Winpatrol. It does not return the
attributes and renames the HOSTS file incorrectly to hosts.



p.s Reset the 3rd party browser setting.
