Thank's austin_o great site lot's of good info.
I also did a google search and found nothing relating to this problem.
I'ts not that explorer.exe is crashing it's almost like it run's out of memory.
Hard to do with 1gig of memory 25% used.
I's there a way to reload explorer? possibley corrupt?

Anyway's Thank's Much.

There is a guide for repair of IE6. From what I have read, I understand that windows explorer and the task bar are part of IE. Take a look at
http://www.geekstogo...er_60-t251.html

There is also a link on the above page to an article at M$ about this.

Thank's austin_o went with option 2 of IE repair seem's to of worked.
Although it changed my IE Local page to %SystemRoot%\system32\blank.htm
from C:\WINDOWS\system32\blank.htm.
But all seem's to be working well no more funny buisness.

Never would of imagined windows explorer and the task bar are part of IE.
Thank's much for the info and have a Great day. :tazz:
