    No problem on my XP system with IE6. This is actually a very old bug
    from ~1996 that affected Win95/98/Me. I don’t think that the NT code
    base every had this problem, so it shouldn’t be present in XP.

    Hi,
    I found a bug in IE6 ón Windows XP with all Service Packs and Patches
    installed:
    If you enter C:\aux in the adressline of the IE (not EXPLORER,
    InternetExplorer)
    and hit enter, the window will freeze. This bug is simmilar to
    C:\con\con
    but not as dagerous. But its the same reason, naimly that windows trys
    to
    open aux, a hardware device in earlier windows versions.
    I already sended an email to Microsoft but they said the bug wouldn't
    exist.

    Bye
