Have you installed "BugToaster" from
http://www.bugtoaster.com/index.asp?

If so, try uninstalling it. If not, or if uninstalling doesn't help,
post back.

OK, well that's one possibility taken care of... Maybe...

Next step is to rule out malware. See the articles in my signature,
starting with the one on Security. None of the available tools can find
all types of malware, but the ones I suggest, if used together, go a
long ways toward that end. It also helps to try a different virus
scanner or three. F-Prot is one that is free and good for this purpose.

Beware, though, of any anti-malware scanners or "fixit" tools that don't
come well-recommended by groups such as this one. There's an awful lot
of "rogue" applications that claim to scan for and remove malware but
which are actually malware installers in disguise.

My Clean Boot article also introduces you to MSCONFIG if you aren't
already familiar with it. MSCONFIG can be used to disable optional
background apps, to see if the offending process is one of those.

All what have done? Have you performed a "clean boot" startup, with
nothing running in the background, and then (carefully) gone surfing to
a safe site, just to test?

In addition to the suggestion from Haggis, I would also consider the
possibilities of firewall or anti-virus or other background security app
being involved. You have to be careful when testing for that, though,
since turning them off can put your system more at risk

If all tests are negative, then run IE Repair from the Tools menu of
MSINFO32. If still no luck, consider a full reinstallation of IE. Any
further advice would be greatly enhanced by giving us some background on
your system. Make/model, whether Win98 or Win98SE, what browser, what
major background apps--what antivirus, etc.

PS: Do a Find on DW15.

What comes up, and where are it/they located in your system?

the only other error i have seen relating to this is a random memory failure

try a memory tester

if you have a CD Burner.)

Good find! I wasn't finding anything quickly, but this'll teach me to
remember to include the extension when searching Google, 8<|

Yes, been watching this thread... I rec'd an error message sometime back on
DW15... DW15, what process is that??
I found (2) instances of this .exe on my puter, appears WM Player, series 9
also uses it and I found Microsoft to be the vendor when I checked
properties on both. The version in C:\Programs\WMPlayer is a newer version
10.0.4109, named dw15.exe; whereas the version in C:\Programs\Internet
Explorer is 10.0.2930, named Dw15.

I think it will turn up without the extension, FWIW.
I've had that in my canned responses for a long while. I'm not sure when MS
replaced DW.exe with DW15.exe, but I would not doubt that they did so to distinguish
the tool from the malware named Downloadware, which also uses a file named DW.exe.
