Thanks Chopper... I will give that a go.
In fact.. you have almost confirmed what I thought the problem was. I installed XP about 2 weeks ago... and IE V.6 was stable... no crashes... illigals... just perfect browsing. However... as soon as I started to use Frontpage 2000, and when I had the first VB error in Frontpage... things have got a bit flaky with IE now... not bad enough to make me wanna throw the comp at the nearest window... yet!.
I was wondering if the 2 things were related?
