    I use Windows 98 SE with Internet Explorer 6 and sometimes when I try to open the web browser, I see the DOS blue screen saying, "Fatal exception 06 has occured and the current application will be terminated." Does anyone know how I can fix this?

    By the way, in case anyone needs some additional info about my system here it is: my computer has 368MB of RAM memory, a 2.2 MHz CentaurHauls processor, a 4GB hard drive, a Sygate Personal Firewall (Free Edition), and an AVG Free Edition Anti-Virus program.

    Probably best to check for spyware

    SpywareBlaster http://www.javacoolsoftware.com/spywareblaster.html
    AdAware SE http://www.majorgeeks.com/download506.html
    SpyBot S&D http://www.safer-networking.org/en/download/

    DL them (they are free), install them, check each for their definition

    updates and then run AdAware and Spybot, fixing anything they say.

    Then run HiJack This http://www.majorgeeks.com/download3155.html , download it and unzip it to its own folder, run it and post a log - DO NOT FIX anything
