Have you been having problems with IE6 crashing when visiting certain sites on the web? Well it seems that Microsoft's latest security patch for Internet Explorer causes the Web browser to crash when viewing Web pages that contain a certain VBScript directives. I've noticed this myself this morning twice. Well over at PCWorld they have word from Microsoft that Webmasters will have to change sites' use of VB script to avoid problem.
