    Hi,

    While loging into OpenID, the
    internet explorer 6 crashes.
    Is there any workaround to this bug ?

    I would prefer not to upgrade the
    Internet explorer unless the
    upgrade is done for free.

    Thx in advans,
    Karthik Balaguru

    The Upgrade to IE 8 is free. It also comes with Service Pack 3. If your XP
    is not up to SP3, this could be part of the problem you're having. If you
    are up to SP3 and still running IE6, I'm confused as to how that can happen.

    Both IE7 and IE8 are free (if you're running WinXP SP3) but you do NOT want
    to upgrade in hopes of fixing an existing problem.

    Is Automatic Updates enabled and is the computer fully-patched at Windows
    Update?

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(another) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on the
    computer (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    In the computer that was used during that
    time, i think, the automatic updates was
    not enabled.
