    XP Pro SP3 IE6


    I have just installed all the new critical updates. Now, on ocassion, after
    a web page has almost loaded the browser simply shuts down.
    No particular website , no sense at all. Must be something in the updates.
    Any ideas what?

    Do you have the same experience when you start Internet Explorer from
    the 'no add-ons' icon?

    Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer
    (No Add-Ons)

    Do you have the same experience after you have reset Internet Explorer
    settings?

    You should know: IE 6 is dangerously out-of-date and represents a real
    security risk. You owe it to yourself to upgrade Windows to IE 7 or IE 8.

    And there's not much point in getting IE7, may as well jump all of the way
    to IE8.

    Did you recently have occasion to do a Repair Install of WinXP?

    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)? Were any of these applications running
    in the background when you installed SP3?

    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)?

    Does the behavior persist after doing a reset?...

    HOW TO Reset Internet Explorer (IE6)
    ====================
    Note: The following will delete all cookies. To save them beforehand: IE
    File | Import and Export | Export Cookies | save the file in an appropriate
    location. To import the backup afterwards: IE File | Import and Export |
    Import Cookies | point the wizard to the saved file.

    ----------------------------------------
    1. After closing all IE windows, click Start, Run, type: “inetcpl.cpl”
    (without quotation marks) and press Enter.
    2. Select the General tab, and in the Temporary Internet files window, click
    "Delete Cookies", and click OK.
    3. In the same tab click Delete Files, check the "Delete all offline
    contents" box and click OK.
    4. Click the Programs tab, and click "Reset Web Settings".
    5. Click the Advanced tab, and click "Restore Defaults".
    6. Under the Advanced tab, uncheck "Enable third-party browser extensions
    (requires restart)".
    7. Click OK.
    8. Reboot.

    I see no need to abandon XP Pro. But that's just me, I suppose.

    No to the Repair Install.
    AVG updated.
    No 3rd party firewall.
    No to the others too.

    Just done a reset and will monitor.

    One of the updates was to install IE7 which I did but preferred 6 so
    reverted to 6.
    Whilst testing 7 I had the same problem which made me think the fault was in
    one of the updates.
    I will see if it still happens but maybe I should take the advice and go to
    IE8 - just happy with 6 that's all.
    Also happy with XP.

    Thanks PA

    Uninstall AVG & reboot, then do a fresh install of AVG: This time select the
    CUSTOM install option and do NOT install (i.e., uncheck) Linkscanner,
    Search-Shield, Active Surf-Shield, Security toolbar, or any of the email
    scanning components.

    Why you don't need your anti-virus to scan your email

    Test.
