Severe browser crashing


Mana B.

I have set up a default news web site as my home page.
This was not a problem before. Now something happened to
that site or in my computer. Every time I tried to launch
my browser, obviously browser tries to load the default
web site and crashes immediately. I am not even getting
any chance to stop site loading in the browser, clearing
cache or changing the default home page location as
crashing is occurring within a few seconds. And I did
not changed any configuration in this browser crushing
machine. I also noticed before, due to occasional browser
crashing, there are some site which I was able to see with
IE v5.5 are unable to view in IE 6.0 (I am currently using
IE v6.0) Browser crashes immediately.

Incidentally, from my other computer I am able to go to
that default news web site without any trouble.

Please help me to this browser crashing problem.

Mana B,
The first step to resolve your problem:
Control Panel | Internet Options | Advanced [tab]
Uncheck: "Enable third-party browser extensions (requires restart)"
Click Apply\Ok and restart.

If this allows IE to start, see:
Dealing with Unwanted Malware, Parasites, Toolbars and Search Engines

Don't forget to re-enable the "3rd browser extensions" option (if used)
Many legit applications use that option.
