I am having the same problem as Pender is having.  I've been using IE 4.0 for almost a year with no problems on my 6100/66 PPC.  Suddenly, it now crashes on statup and Norton gives me the unmapped memory exception message.I have also removed the program and its system components multiple time and I still get this message.  HELLLLLLLLP!

Crashguard was not the problem.  After consultiong some other sources, restarting the computer and using appple-P-R allowed me to clear my PRAM and it finally allowed IE4.0 to unfreeze and run perfectly well.

TechTool clears the lower half of PRAM and can be found at:

Some programmers have discovered that they can use the Lower PRAM (reserved for Apple). When this becomes corrupted it must be reset, but can only be done by disconnecting the battery or using a utility like TechTool. Cmd + Opt + P + R will not clear it.

Microsoft programmers (big offenders) do not follow instructions very well when it comes to Apple Guidlines for Quality Programming. I choose to boycott Microsoft based on the fact that the installation of most Microsoft programs have unwanted side effects throughout the MacOS environment due to their inability to create a program that does not require a bunch of half-baked System Extensions. While turning OFF these MS Extensions will allow my Mac to run free of errors, the Microsoft programs will not run. It's a trade off. Bill has enough money and there are plenty of options that do not have side effects that are still in business in spite of Mr. Gates' (of Hell) best attempts to bury these other companies.

At any rate, I am glad that you have solved your problem.
