    Over the last few days I have been experiencing the above problem at random intervals. I was using IE6 (SP1) and every 20 mins or so my browser would close. No error message or blue screens nothing.

    I am on a 512k DSL Conection and the connection was not broken - I merely went to Start Menu and clicked IE to get it back.

    Does anyone have any idea what could cause this ?

    I have scanned with Spybot, done on and offline virus and trojan scans - nohing untoward was found.

    Have also done the Start > Run - register urlmon.dll.

    I have tried Repair IE.

    Switched to Avantbrowser yesterday and it was fine - until 10 mins ago when it happened again.

    As I'm using XP I can try reverting back given that I have numerous Restore Points, I could try and strip ouy IE6 using IE Eradicator.

    But this has me flummoxed - I've been on DSL for almost a year with very few problems.

    If anyone has any feedback it would be most welcome both to me - and of course to anyone who subsequently experiences this same error.

    Do a windows search for ie.inf and when found right click it and select install . This will reinstall or as they say repair internet explorer for xp...

    Thanks for the reply,

    Tried the above but Windows reported 'File not found.'

    Though in my case this browser closing is rather infrequent and therefore annoying rather than disruptive.

    First you have to go to folder options and click on the view tab then check "show hidden files and folders" as well as uncheck "hide protectes operating system files" then retry thescan for ie.inf.
