It's happened more than once, and that refers me back to my very 1st post. Any time I try to clean out my cookies or my page history through IE6, it locks everything and wipes out most of my icons, leaving perhaps a few shadows of the icon titles. Even the start button is shadowed. I can move the mouse pointer, but I don't know what I'm clicking on, so I just do a hard-button reboot and everything comes back (but the end page displays the original Media Center small rectangle, not the full screen). Perhaps it's going through a safe mode/restore point cycle of some kind?

I've been going through Spybot and the control panel to eliminate most of the clutter, but I've a feeling that some of these cookies are lurking in the background. Any thoughts?

AMD Sempron 3100+, 1.81 GHz, 512 MB DDR SDRAM, 120 gig hard drive, XP Media Ctr '02 sp2, nVidia Geforce 6100GPU. It's a Wal-Mart eMachines with bundled software. AOL 9.0, 9 in 1 card reader, etc. It's taking some of the RAM for internal processing so I really have less than 400 MB... yes, I know I desperately need more. I've had to increase the virtual memory to 1536MB as a result.

To add insult to injury, I'm on 56k dialup.

I also went through the control panel, and it said something about a "registry dump", that there wasn't enough room. Perhaps this can also be considered, whatever it is.

Do you still have Microsoft Defender installed. If so uninstall it and reinstall Defender. It appears in all 4 error messages.

Understandably I'm reluctant to uninstall Defender, because I'd have to go on the net to reinstall it. It's part of the software bundle that came with my computer, and there's no CD-ROM to replace it. At this point, I have no other firewall.

Who can tell me about the most recent reg file error message ("The memory used by the registry has not been freed")?

As long as it is causing problem it is almost as bad as malware. I have quit using it altogether. I use Spybot and SpywareGuard instead. I have not had a virus on any of my computer in years,

I understand Defender isn't well-considered by serious computer users. I'm still trying to learn how IE6 might be affected by this, and why it keeps crashing the way it does.

Where can I get SpywareGuard?

I never have like "Follow the Leader". The simple truth is Windows (All version) is so complex that the interaction with out programs cannot always be predicted. I consider MS Defender a very good program. In your case there is a problem. It happens with all computers from time to time. I use Spybot but over the last 3 years I have re-installed it on my computer twice. Why it went bad is a mystery. I just re-install and move on. I recommend the same for you. If you like the product and are confident in it's ability to protect your system just re-install it.
All but one of my computers run W2K and Defender will not longer run W2k systems. That is the only reason I am not running it.
We have many freeware security programs in our " Freeware Replacements For Common Commercial Apps", but here is the direct link. Spyware Guard

Understandably I'm reluctant to uninstall Defender, because I'd have to go on the net to reinstall it. It's part of the software bundle that came with my computer, and there's no CD-ROM to replace it. At this point, I have no other firewall.


You apparently are on the Net now -

you can download the current version of MS Defender, put it on a thumb drive or some other media, and then un-install Defender it on the PC that is giving these problems, and re-install it from the new download. If you are using that PC, then just download it to your PC before you un-install it.

From what I'm seeing, I agree with acklan - until you've tried this, we can't be sure that Defender isn't the culprit.

BTW - I'm sure you know, but Defender isn't a firewall, and if you don't have a firewall other than Win XP's, that might be something else to consider once you've resolved this issue.

I know you think you understand what you thought I said,
but I'm not sure you realize that what you heard is not what I meant!
