browser shuts down when going to some sites

The problem is when going to certain sites, my browser just shuts down.....for example: eBay, where the auction has ended, THIS site when I use the search box! For example, when I tried to search this site, the results page started to load (maybe half the page) then bosh...the browser (ie7 / was same on ie6) just closes and I'm left with the desktop, just as if I'd clicked the 'X' button. I've a feeling this may have started when I changed from Tiscali to Bulldog (could this be related?). About 15% of the links I click on from Google do this. Most odd, I'd really like to fix this, as its driving me mad...thanks.

Does Firefox click here do the same?

Thanks VoG. I've just downloaded Firefox and it doesn't do it anymore!! What is it? Some kind of problem IE-v-Bulldog? Although its fixed, I'm still curious as to what was happening.

Are you saying that IE doesn't do it anymore? Or that Firefox doesn't crash but IE does?

I get exactly the same on IE6 at work on this site, I just don't bother looking at this site anymore during lunch time, I've never found out what it is.

I'm saying that Firefox doesn't crash but IE still I think I will now use Firefox. Thank you very much for the suggestion about Firefox, it seems really good.
