    Angry Help w/IE6- Browser windows closing for no apparent reason (?)


    Ok sorry if this has been posted before, I wasn't sure how to search for it and I browsed the first few pages and didn't see anything similiar....


    so here is my problem, recently, I think this started happening two days ago, when I have a bunch of browser windows open (which I do alot, esp If I'm doing research) every once in a while, after I click on a link they will all close. It is really frustrating! Especially tonight, I am doing research for a paper and I have to open up my school's library page, and then login with this barcode # and then navigate to the research port (basically I can't just go into my history and find where I was b/c I have to log in and navigate to it through the school's site) Just now I only had about three windows open but I've had many more open at one time, so it's not like it's a limit issue. It's happened three times tonight.


    ANYWAY does anyone know what causes this?

    I am on Windows Xp and using IE version 6.



    Thanks

    it sounds like your browser is crashing.

    do you get prompted for an error report?

    check your computer for spyware that might be crashing your computer.

    no i didnt get prompted, which makes it even more frustrating....they all just closed on me, but the rest of my comptuer was fine, and i could open up a new browser right away.
    i checked for spyware and nothing came up, although i do have this xlime offeroptimizer thing on here and i can't get rid of it, doesnt come up on the spyware search.
    also this 180search thing is in my computer too, and ive tried to get rid of it (went into the registry) and its still there

    not sure if they are related to the browser thing

    It's sounds like a max connections issue. Your browser will just close (mine did). Look at your event log and see if there is a
    TCP/IP has reached the security limit imposed on the number of concurrent TCP connect attempts.
