Hi - wondering of anyone knows what might be causing this
IE6 keeps causing my PC to crash to a blue screen of death with the message DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL and doing a physical memory dump (which never seems to end - I have to manually restart the PC)
It seems to happen after I've been using IE for some time or been looking at sites with high graphics content which suggests to me that it might be something to do with IE6 running out of memory of something.
However I have tried reformatting the hardrive and reinstalling all the software and OS from scratch and it didn't stop it. I've done all the service packs and patches. I've tried different RAM, different network cards - it still happened. I've tried it with personal firewall and anti-virus software on and off - still no difference.
Its starting to really annoy me cos it can happen 5 or 6 times in a day so any suggestions gratefully received.
Dell Dimension 4300 with 1.7GB Pentium IV
Windows 2000 Pro (SP3)
3COM 3C905-TX and 3Com 3C905B network cards (I run two network connections)
