What causes internet explorer to do this ?

Every day several times a day internet explorer says it has encountered a problem & needs to shut down. What could be causing this? Sometimes after it says this something pops up that says something about refrenced memory. But it doesnt say that all the time when internet explorer says it has encontered a problem & has to shut down. Thank you

    I don't know what is causing it, but I think you are suspecting virus/spyware intrusion. Then you can download the free AOL Security Center from the following link and scan your computer:

    http://daol.aol.com/safetycenter

    You only need to have a free AOL email ID for that. Remove any anti-virus that you have got, because the two will fight each other. Also, you could do with cleaning up your trash files. To do this, get CCleaner from http://www.ccleaner.com/ and run it daily before shutting down your computer.

    Maybe its the site your on or a program you downloaded. ActiveX component fails to install, or fails to run

    This is very rare, and is usually accompanied by an Internet Explorer error message, or Internet Explorer crashing completely.

    Even if you solved the problem now...it'll come back in some other form later...trust me.

    Get Firefox.
