RE: IE6 hangs
Hi Pat,

i'm rapidly descending into madness...

i logged into the machine as user1 and started up IE6 and browsed to the url. all seemed fine. But when i closed the browser i got an error from IE6 (it had crashed).
Thinking that IE6 may have been having trouble with that users profile i logged out as that user and back in as administrator. I deleted the user user1, and chaned the urlblast ini file to create a user of the form "urlblastn" and restarted urlblast. the user urlblast1 was sucessfully created, IE6 was started and navigated to google and closed, then reopened and navigated to google (awesome i thought, its fixed), but then the browser window opened again to visit the autotrader site, nothing was drwan on screen, and the browser closed. The browser started again, and again nothing was rendered (i could see the call to the url in the status bar of IE6).
Then without warning the machine rebooted.

I have urlblast set as a startup short-cut so once windws was back up, it did exactly the same thing.

I grabbed the logs (attached), what does "Too Many Sequential Errors" mean?

Cheers,

Stuart
Umm ok, i've just fixed it, and its bizzare.

The machine is one of our old "stock" desktop PCs that was ready to join the great scrap heap, ad the IT guys wiped it clean and put a new corporate XP image on there (it included SP2).

Now after reading around on the internet about IE6 crashes i found a few articles about a particular culmative secuirty patch for IE6, so i went to the MS update site, to find there was only one update, windows genuine advantage. I installed that, and then lo and behold it all started working!

And of course as soon as i installed that MS updates reports there is 127 critical security updates required for IE6!! I haven't installed any of them, as one of the criticisms i have received is that the site crashes IE6.

Oh well, i'll chalk that one up to experience.

Stuart.
