My browsers, particularly IE (6) dont always respond when I try to open them. With IE about half the time when I click the icon nothing happens. If a then check task manager IE is indeed running and taking up about 14K of memory, but it never opens. If I try opening it again another instance will just open under task manager and nothing will show up. Now if I end all the IE processes in there and then start IE again it'll be fine. But I need to get this fixed. Any ideas?

Thanks
Dan

Not sure this will help, but IE6 had a couple of updates. Have you tried updating it?

i unchecked enable third party browser extensions in the tools - options - advanced window and that did the trick! however now IE opens w/o the google toolbar and i need that. i checked it again, and the toolbar returned but IE went back to behaving the same way. im guessing its not the toolbar but some other addon thats creating the problem. how do i go about fixing this tho?
thanks
dan
