In the last few days, I have been getting the message from iexplore.exe "The instruction at "0039af2c0" referenced memory at "0x00000ba0". The memory could not be read. Click Ok to terminate" coming up 20seconds after I have closed IE6 (XP Profess sp2).
Has anyone any idea what may be causing this

    Hello Nealroy,

    The problem is like due to Step 4 below. ISA II has been known to cause this type of error. Try the other steps also.

    1. An addon may be interfering. Disable Addons.  If you have Windows XP SP2, go to Tools > Add-on Manager, and uncheck the addons.

    If using Windows XP SP1 or earlier, disable third party extensions. With IE open, go to Tools > Internet Options > Advanced. Uncheck "Third party extensions". Click Ok. Reboot computer.

    2. Clear your cache.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > General tab.  Under Temporary Internet Files, click "Delete Files" button. Click OK.

    3. Reset IE settings.  Go to Tools > Internet Options > Programs.  Click on "Reset Web Settings" button. Go to Advanced tab and click "Restore Defaults" button. Go to Security tab and move the bar to Medium or Default. Click OK. Close all browsers. Reboot the computer.

    4. If no joy, check if a program running in the background is interfering with Internet Explorer. Temporarily disable antivirus, firewall, antispyware, ad-blocker, popup blocker, and all Norton programs.

    5. If no joy, run the System File Checker to repair any broken system files.  Go to Start > Run and type sfc /scannow
    and hit OK.  You will need your Windows XP CD when asked.

    6. If no joy, repair or reinstall Internet Explorer and Outlook Express in Windows XP

    Hope this helps!

    Nealroy, backup your data files before you perform the repair.
