Hi there - hope someone can help with this one.

Running XP Pro SP2 on Dell Dimension 2400 with 2GB RAM.

Recently IE has starter crashing on me, everytime I try to close it down I get the message that IE has experienced a problem and needs to close when I look at the detail, all I can get is this

AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 7.0.6000.16640 ModName: yietagbm.dll
ModVer: 2006.7.28.1 Offset: 00001e14

In addition to crashing when closing IE will also crash at seemingly random intervals.

I have tried re-installing IE7 without any improvement

Any help appreciated

In I.E >tools>internet options>advanced>press reset.
This will rmove all I.E add ons,one of which is likely to be causing problems.
You can download them again if you need as you go along on various online games etc that may need them.
Also try clearing your cookies and files.
Remember any internet auto log in passwords to some sites as this will remove them.

yietagbm.dll is related to Yahoo you might have a toolbar issue or similar like shortcuts that sort of thing...

Suggest uninstalling anything related to Yahoo that you really don't need,it may help...

Try using fireFox until you get it sorted.
