    Yep......that is the one. I remember now seeing the mshtml.dll file
    mentioned many times. I must check the Update group and see if it is
    still causing problems........I didn't realize it was giving BSOD's, but
    did know that it was crashing XP OE constantly.

    Hmm.....you realize we have had one awful winter.......but then again, I
    hate 40 degree weather (100+ to you Yanks.....grin). So in the summer
    you can come up here and enjoy some 'cool'.
