"Internet Explorer has encountered a problem..."

  sheep444 21:05 19 Aug 2004

For no apparent reason (no recent changes to system) I have started getting a very frequent error message, especially when visiting my web based email (btyahoo & hotmail), but also less frequently when browsing the net: "MS Internet Explorer has encountered a problem and needs to close......". Error details are given as: appnam ieexplore.exe, 6.0 2800.1106, mscvrt.dll, 6.1 8293.0 offset 00015ca.
IE6 then closes down. With perseverance I can eventually get where I want to go but it is becoming a real pain in the arse. I run IE6 with Windows98 SE. Any advice on what causes the problem and how to resolve it? I have run updated antivirus and antispy/adware but the eror message continues.

I think it is something to do with your IE security settings, IE>Tools>Internet ops>security. Anyway read the link click here

thanks for the help guys but it makes no difference - I have repaired IE6 and reset all the security levels but the error message still occurs (>10 times tonight) Any other ideas?
