    Site uses mostly java script from my untrained eye. Have you been to the windows update site and downloaded all the updates.

    The other possiblity is your Advanced settings for IE. Start>Settings>CP>InternetOptions>Advanced.

    These should NOT be selected

    Display a notification of every script error
    Java Console Enabled
    Java Logging Enabled

    Obviously the bottom two can be selected if your doing Java programming.

    And these Should be selected

    Disable Script Debugging
    JIT Compiler for virtual machine enabled


    If that doesnt work, then go here and download "W95/98/ME 3802 build of MS Virtual Machine". Once it's downloaded, execute the downloaded file to install it.

    You may also want to do this to be sure your clean of Spyware. They are known to cause those types of errors when browsing.

    Go <a href=http://www.lavasoftusa.com/downloads.html> here </a>, then on the Right side of the page, click on the little Yellow folder next to “Ad-aware 5.5 Final NEW 837 kb” to download AAW.exe. Once you've downloaded it, double left click on it to install it. Then look for the AdAware folder in Start>Programs and execute the program. Once it launches, on the Left side of the screen, be sure to select ScanRegistry(DeepScan), ScanMemory and Scan Fixed C: Drive from the directory tree on the Left side and then click on “Scan”. When it's done scanning, click on Continue and then select everything it lists and continue on to delete and clean it up.

    If your running W95 or W98, try this

    Click on Start>Shutdown>Restart in MSDos mode. At a MSDos prompt key in each command and press enter after each.

    smartdrv
    deltree /y tempor~1
    deltree /y history
    deltree /y cookies
    exit

    Now once Windows restarts, delete any Favorite you may have for that site and then try the site again.

    BTW, the commands above will also delete all of your cookies but they will be rebuilt as you revisit the webpages you frequent.

    Hi all! Sorry to dig up this old thread, but it's what I got when doing a search for the problem.

    I go to a certain website, and it crashes IE6 every single time. http://www.cafeshops.com/bearshare. The site would just finish loading when it crashed the browser.
    Also, when searching the web last night for something else, another website crashed IE6. Can't post the URL because the site barely started loading before causing the crash.

    These sites work fine in Mozilla.

    So far these are the only two sites that have ever done this, and I find it very strange.
    - All the above posts either didn't help or apply to me.
    - I reinstalled IE6
    - Ran the IE repair tool
    - Scanned for viruses or trojans
    - My startup list is short and free of spyware/adware/whateverware
    - Yes, I rebooted - several times during troubleshooting. I even shut down the computer overnight to see if that would clear anything.
    In short, my system is squeaky clean and well maintained. I've never encountered an IE crash for specific websites before.

    Any suggestions?? TIA

    Hi Del,

    I'm on DSL, with an external Cisco 678 modem.

    btw... I just ran System File Checker, found files that needed restoring, but that didn't fix the problem.

    Iwonder should I reinstall Windows? And if I do, can I safely reinstall over the current installation without losing anything? (please say yes :) )

    Is it a USB modem? I've seen this with the USB modems, there's a diaganostic for usb that some run at startup that caused this with IE and Netscape, unchecked the dragdiag in msconfig and fixed the problem?
