Angry Problem with IE 6

For some reason, certain websites automatically close my browser. I have run spybot (latest version) and scanned for viruses w/mcaffee 7.0 (latest updates) and deleted 3 trojans. But the same problem persists.

Some websites I have found to cause problems: (click flights) (click sell, then login) (homepage crashes)

Any ideas????

Gateway Machine - I know...I sold out...if I could do it over I'd have built like I used to :(
MS Vista Premium 32-bit
AMD Phenom (9500) Quad-core Processor 2.20 ghz
500GB hard drive
2 Free PCI-E slots x1
1 Free PCI-E x16

go to: and do an online virus scan. It will pick up stuff Norton and Mcafee misses. Plus its FREE. Deleting Temp files is also good idea.

also Windows updates!
