Photoshop doesn't leave anything in memory (when a program terminates, Windows reclaims all its memory; it doesn't depend on the application to clean itself up), and we have lots of people here who use Photoshop at the same time as, or followed by, or preceded by IE, Netscape, and other programs on Win98 SE -- and all other current flavors of Windows -- with no problems. Having IE (or anything else) die because you have previously run Photoshop is *not* normal. Photoshop has bugs, but they're not *that* blatant. You almost certainly have some other problem, like a conflict between Photoshop and an installed utilitiy or driver, or a subtly damaged Windows installation. You might give Adobe tech support a call. They may have a list of potentially conflicting utilities and drivers. If they don't, they'll probably start you down that path we all hate: reinstall this, reinstall that. But they do it because it works a lot of the time. Russell - Turn off HTML mail features.
