I am running 64 bit Windows 7 Pro with Internet Explorer 64 bit 9.0.8112.16421

This browser keeps crashing and I don't know why.  Is the browser or one of my add ons?
My addons are:  google toolbar.  yahoo toolbar Mcaffe site advisor and Robo form. I also use Citbank Vitural account numbers

I know I could unistall and then re install but I want an expoer opinion before I do that.  
I use Revco unistaller to unistall programs thanks to Experts  Exchange advise.

try with disabling the addons and also scan your system for spyware using some antispyware application.

I will disable add ons. However, I am sure I don't have a virus.  I use PC Matic for anti virus and just to make sure I only surf the web using Sandboxie which takes off everything after using the internet.  No virus can get through.

Does the behavior persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

How do I do No Add on Mode?  I just disabled all my add ons manually.   This would be good to know for the future.   Right  now it seems to be working OK without add ons. However I want to test it for at least 12 hours.

Good to hear that it is working fine after disabling addons.. ones you are confirmed it is working fine.. you may enable addon one by one and check which was making the problem so that you can uninstall that single addon.
