I've run into a problem that seems fairly typical, but I don't have a good list of things
to check in my mind, like I do for other problems.
My wive's machine won't load certain web sites. IE 6 simply shut down, back to the
desktop without a trace. These aren't specialty web sites, but common sites used
by thousands of folks, so certainly a problem with the machine. The site I'm checking
with is www.starbucks.com. The home page loads partially, and after a few clicks,
stops the program.
I've upgraded IE 6 to IE 7, same problem (except it asks to send a message to Windows).
I've upgraded Java, same problem. The "Verify" option at the Java site confirmed things
I've ensured the graphics driver is up to date.
Other suggestions? Thanks folks.

P.S. It occurred to me that someone out there might be able to interpret the code Windows
wanted sent back to them. It is pasted below.
Well drat ... it won't let me cut and paste the whole report. I'll say though
that the "Error Signature" reads:
AppName: iexplore.exe AppVer: 7.0.6000.16544 ModName: mshtml.dll
