Also, I've seen all kinds of IE crashes with users that didn't perform a fresh install of XP. If you upgraded from an older version of Windows, you should start over with a fresh install.
Funny thing is, I also run phoenix - a mozilla build - on that same box. That one almost never crashes.
How is it that IE crashes so much, when MS built it & XP, and a non MS not to mention free web browser, has far less problems?
It's mind boggling.

Though not surprising. :)
Anyway steveb, I think it's important to make the distinction when talking about XP between the home and professional editions -- they are quite different. But I'll add to the numbers: one more who's been using IE with XP (Professional) for months, with the Google toolbar and with no problems.
Different question... if I uninstall the toolbar, will that uninstall that line of text I stuck somewhere to get the most updated pagerank from the main server? And if it does, could somebody remind me where that is so I can copy it before I try some reinstall tricks? The Windows text file, I forget its name...

It's in your HOSTS file. Nope, uninstalling and reinstalling the toolbar won't touch it.
steveb, I can see you on the next MAC commercial telling everyone to switch -
"IE kept crashing on me, even after a fresh XP install... so I switched to Mac and never looked back..." (too bad google toolbar won't run on mac)
Kinda off the topic, but I am also getting (sometimes) a unknown file on my desktop after I shutdown Outlook Express, it's "name" is "~"... just that symbol. (The file is actually my address book.) I read somewhere this is a sign of a ailing hardrive, so that may be my problem. I have no memory issues or anything like that.
i think the tech support just asked if there are third party components and then blamed googletoolbar for this.
