Last week, IE6 started crashing a lot, particularly if I have more than one page open at a time, the usual 'needs to close' message appears, and the error code is:
AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 6.0.2900.2180 ModName: unknown
ModVer: 0.0.0.0 Offset: 10011e39
Sometimes this is quickly followed by Dr Watson Post Mortem Debugger 'needing to close':
EventType : BEX P1 : drwtsn32.exe P2 : 5.1.2600.0 P3 : 3b7d84a2
P4 : dbghelp.dll P5 : 5.1.2600.2180 P6 : 4110969a P7 : 0001295d
P8 : c0000409 P9 : 00000000
On restarting the computer, I have had a problem with the computer loading as far as the desktop wallpaper then stopping (no task bar, icons, etc.) which I fixed twice by starting up in Safe Mode and using System Restore. Unfortunately, the problem with IE remains and whilst I seem to be okay in Firefox I'm concerned I have a virus or similar which may start to effect other programs.
Any help/advice extremely welcome - please help out a damsel in distress!
