IE Problem

I recently installed Windows XP Pro as I had been having a few problems with W2K. What a mistake! I knew that I needed to install Java as I use a few sites that rely on it. I therefore downloaded the latest version but whenever I tried to verify the installation on the Java website, IE closed without explanation, simply generating an error report which suggests it is a problem with Java.

I have reinstalled Java a number of times and have now got to the stage where I can verify the installation, but whenever I log on to a particular site, IE still shuts down with no warning or explanation. I have attached (hopefully) one of the error reports for information.

I also have Mozilla Firefox installed and although it seems quicker, its behaviour has not been any better although on the site I use, it simply fails to show the java applet.

I am at a loss as to what the cause could be and would really appreciate some help.

My machine is home built and based on the following:
Abit NF7-M MoBo
Athlon XP 3200 CPU
Maxtor Sata 160 Gb HDD
Radeon 9500 graphics card

I am using the latest version of XP with SP 2and IE6, also with SP2
