    Have you tried running IE with no addons? This option can be found in the start menu. If it works then it is an add on that is causing it to kick you off.
    Does this happen on all sites or just Facebook?

    For instance Mozilla Firefox (maybe even with ad blocker and noscript add-ons) or my favorite browser Opera.

    Open Windows' Control panel - Internet options
    Go to tab "Programs" and click on "Manage add-ons".

    Here you can walk through all installed add-ons to IE and disable as much as you like. Just remember what you were doing, in case you want to roll back anything. The extensions from Microsoft are probably ok.

    Map based on Vista with IE8, could look slightly differently on your system.

    If so, this is not your problem. It is gathering data on the crash to report the problem to MS (let it do so).

    Black sheep of the family, though. They say I lack guts, bowel in particular.

    I think that anti-malware programs, which are capable of finding and eliminating keyloggers, should be labeled "deburgler" :)

    Yes, that is what happens when an application crashes.

    It may simply be due to the fact that you are using IE6. You should really upgrade to a newer version of IE (8 for XP) or try a different browser like Firefox or Chrome. I've seen IE6 crash plenty when it encounters modern web technology that it can't handle.

    As to Add-ons possibly causing an issue:
    In IE, click Tools → Manage Addons and see if there is anything listed. Disable any add-ons and try Facebooking again.


    You can look in the Event logs to see what errors IE registered (and post them here, if necessary). Find Event Viewer in your Start menu, or type
    eventvwr.msc
    in the Run box.

    Look at the Applications log. Look for the most recent errors and warnings for potentially related entries. Then, at the top of the viewing pane, click the Source column header to sort the events by app name, then look for internet explorer entries which are errors or warnings.

    You can try uninstalling then reinstalling IE, in case something in IE is corrupted.

    You can run the command
    sfc /scannow
    from the Run box to check system files for corrupted or missing files.

    In case malware may be causing a problem, do a full scan with your anti-virus. Further, download this tool http://malwarebytes.org (the free version), install it, let it update, then run it.

    But do realize that IE6 is terribly outdated, and that you are likely to run into more problems with it as the web continues to change. (Besides, you are missing out on tabbed browsing! So much easier to be able to refer to a link on a page without having the original page close.)
