IE 6.0 Shutdown Problems

I am running IE 6.0 in Win98SE, 600MZ and 340MB Ram.  I can successfully open multiple browser windows, but when I go to shut them down, all browser windows close successfully except the last one that I try to close.  When I close the last IE 6 browser window, I always get an error message, "This program has performed an illegal operation, etc.", and the details window indicates that "IExplore caused an invalid page fault in module Kernel32.dll".  I cannot close this error message, but instead must reboot to clear the message.

Advice on how to fix this problem?

If you don't already have it go to www.lavasoftusa.com and get AdAware.  It'll wipe out the Aureate Radiate spyware.  If you already have it, update to the latest version and definitions, and run it.

You could also use the remover mentioned in the MS article (I couldn't get the site to open).  If you do, you should get and use AdAware anyway, it's a very useful program.

do you use McAfee? I know they had a patch for this problem with IE5.5

Excellent response, right on target!  Downloaded and installed AdAware, and it worked perfectly.  Got rid of Radiate, Double Click, and other gremlins.  Also, the MS problem page referred to was very accurate.

Thanks for your help!!
