Explorer 6 url entry crash .. sometimes!

  jgd 09:24 08 Feb 2004

Have recently upgraded to IE6 under W98.

Sometimes, when wishing to enter new url I click on existing url to highlight as normal but when FIRST keypress of new url is made Explorer crashes with message as shown below.

But, strangely, it does not seem to happen everytime or if I cursor right to remove highlight, then delete the old url using backspace, and then type new url.

Mysterious ...Suggestions please from anybody who has a clue about the following!

EXPLORER caused an invalid page fault in
module USER.EXE at 001e:0000166c.

Thanks DS, seems to be OK now and I now know that IE has an auto repair facility .. which must be a useful bonus!

Cheers, JGD
