    IE unexpectedly quits when viewing particular site (IE 6 SP2)

    I have a small site. One of my users has a version of IE that, when she goes to a particular site (and only that site), just quits - totally, with no error messages.

    In my investigation I have accessed the site from other machines happily. The failure occurs for her user-code, and my usercode (Windows XP SP2) on her machine.

    A further test, I used a working machine to make an offline save on a network drive. A click on the .htm file displayed the page for about 20 seconds - then it died again. <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    For what it is worth, the site that triggers this is the home page http://www.des.gov.uk

    The site uses Java (although I can't find the code that invokes it at the moment). Make sure the machine has a JVM/JRE installed, or configure security to block Java.

    Thanks Jefferson. I'm sure we do, because we use that same machine to talk to a PABX that has installed it. However, that gives me a couple of things to check out. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    Jefferson Yes you got it in one! <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>. I reloaded Java.
