    I have just recently had this problem where I cannot open
    two instances of Internet Explorer on my computer. If I
    try and right-click on a link to "Open in New Window", it
    simply opens the link in the new window, but closes the
    previous one. I can continue to surf the web in the new
    window, however, when I close the window I get a general
    error message saying that "internet Exporer has caused an
    error and will shut down" and that "if you continue having
    problems, please restart your computer".

    I have searched the web long and hard for an answer to
    this problem but have had very little luck. I even have
    seen a couple of similar postings here in thee newsgroups,
    but each one basically says that you must have some sort
    of spyware running that is doing this to the browser. I
    have run both "AdAware" and "Search and Destroy", deleted
    any questionable operations or cookies, etc... and still
    have the same problem. AAAAARRRRGGGGHH! any help would
    be GREATLY appreciated! Thanks (from chilly Canada)

    I have the same issue -- I can be out on the internet and
    go to type a new site and explorer error appears -
    sometimes ending task is ok other times I have to shut
    down - I run on a DSL line and am frustrated. I noticed
    this starting only after downloading IE 6.1 -- I have
    emailed Microsoft but have not had a response - hopefully
    someone out there can help us - it appears there are alot
    of notices on the newsgroup about this but no fix.
