Explorer chrashes more and more frequently

    We run Win XP (home edition 2002, SP2) and when surfing the web, we find more
    and more web sites where the Explorer chrashes (..has encountered a problem
    and needs to close..). It used to be a few - but now it is quite often - and
    on sites that until recently was ok.

    Is there some way of cleaning up the system - other than complete
    reinstallation?

    Explorer is version 7.0.5730.11

    All current Windows updates have been installed.

    Wauw - that seems to work. I have pretty much disabled all add-ons.

    Some pages now can't show some kind of media-fields... is there a way to
    know which add-on it requires - so I can turn that paricular one on again?

    I thought a message would appear and ask for me to turn on something - or
    that it didi it automatically - and then the explorer would gradually clutter
    up again...

    But in general - I am very happy with this advice - as the browser doesn't
    crash any more.
