IE6 closes when certain words typed

By ejwise ·
I run XP Pro with IE6. As soon as I've typed the URL www.gateway.gov.uk in IE6 the browser closes immediately. Similarly, if I type JavaScript the same thing happens. Can anyone suggest a remedy?

I need to contact the government gateway urgently but cannot because of this immediate closure of IE6

That's bizzare! Try going to Google.com and searching for www.gateway.gov.uk. When the results appear, click on the link for www.gateway.gov.uk.

Have you scanned for viruses?

I have discovered the problem. I had pop-up blocker activated in Tweak-XP. As soon as I disabled this the problem was removed. I don't know why pop-up blocker had this effect - but it sure did!
