We have a user whos windows explore keeps crashing everytime he goes into my computer, or any time the explore.exe is used, it crashes. This started happening after IE 6 sp 1 was installed. We tried removing IE 6 and explore worked ok, when IE 6 was installed back on the same thing would happen. Any ideas?
