as the title says... winxp pro sp2 ie version 6.0.2900.2180
why does it just crash whenever i open an ie window?

Install Mozilla! :thumbs: Seriously - it is better - worth it just for the tabbed browsing.

Could be viruses or spyware or a conflict with a program recently installed. Have you scanned with antivirus and antispyware tools? Are there any other problems with the computer?

Did it ever work, have you just loaded the latest updates from MS?

yeah im running mozilla right now lol. but still want ie. it started happening after i installed the automatic updates...

Ahhhhhhhh, there is another thread on these updates. You may be able to un-instal some of them. Probably wait a day or two or three and see what issues other people are having rather than jumping in boots and all. Never a good idea to update immediately from MS without waiting to see how others are faring especially on a mission critical machine.

it works on my machine OK

Have you tried reinstalling IE6? Did you encounter any error messages prior crashing?

Cheers :)

Please be critical of my English, especially my grammar!

James this is not really nice!
Why should I be critical of your grammar she's probably a nice old lady. How about picking on someone more to your own age?

it seems buggy, but better than no ie at all. where can i download it? i've searched it up and cant find it

You can download it here

I would be inclined to try and get IE 6 working before you add anymore complications.
Have you tried a repair of IE 6
Go to Control Panels/Add remove programs
Select IE and Remove
If you get an option to Repair select that.
If repair is not there back out without doing anything.

you maybe able to do an ie repair go to control panel uninstall/install applications if interent explorer is listed in there click once on it click on add remove button then you get a popup up with oprtions on choose repair option Im sure you can do the rest

I agree with Safari in that you should try and fix your current problem rather than rush in and update to IE7.
