Theres got to be something wrong here, occasionally when I closedown IE6, the program remains on screen, I can start say MSN which overlays atop the "closed" IE6. Shutdown MSN and it remains onscreen as well. By this time the arrowed mouse turns to a pointed finger, about all I can do after that is go to the "Start" button and restart the PC.

I should add here that when I close IE6, it disappears off the task bar, as does MSN, but the programs display their last pages on screen.

Is this a fault with the memory or Shared video memory on this PC?

XP Pro, 2.6Gh, 512Mb ram.

Thanks John in Mosgiel.

I would defintily be looking at it as a video chipset fault,try drivers or an old pci video card if you have one.
