For the last month or so Netscape 7.2, Netscape 8.1 and I/E 6 crash when I view CNN.com. So far this is the only site I have a problem with. I enabled the site for pop-ups, turned off Java Script and uninstalled shockwave. The problem still exists. I have run Spybot, Ad-Aware and Windows Defender and removed all spyware. Virus scan comes up clean. Any ideas?

Does it crash just the browsers, or the entire operating sytem?

It only crashes the browsers. When Netscape 7.2 crashes XP wants to know if I want to send an error report. (I have sent several) With Netscape 8.1 and I/E 6 they just close with no messages or anything. I must add that when I go to CNN.COM I can read some of the articles before it crashes. Sometimes it is the first thing I look at and sometimes I can look at several news items before it crashes. It seems to usually crash when I hit the back button to return to the main menu.
