Visual Basic 6 IDE Issue

Experts,

My Visual Basic 6 IDE keeps shutting down when I hit "stop" during design-time.  It didn't used to do this, but something has changed in the environment.  I have to keep re-opening the app after attempting to trace, etc.

you are either using threading in your code, or use a third-party ocx/component that does, and which is not thread-safe.

I'm not using it in my code, at least not deliberately.  How can I tell if it's an .ocx component and which one?

does it happen on a new empty project?
yes => reinstall vs + service pack
no => add 1 component after the other from your project, and repeat the test.

It doesn't happen on a new project, but what's interesting is that it doesn't happen every time either.  Sometimes I can hit "stop" and the IDE stays open.
