My Internet Explorer keeps crashing right when it starts?

Question

Any ideas why when I try playing videos at Launch.com my Internet Explorer keeps crashing right when it starts? It plays the first 30 second video ad just fine, but when it switches over to the actual video, it skips a couple times, then crashes completely. I can't figure it out, Launch.com help is pretty generic.

I'm running Windows XP with Service Pack 2, IE6, and Windows Media Player 10. Any help would be appreciated, thanks!

Maybe try lowering the bandwidth.

On the player, underneath the video is the option "Select Bandwidth." The setting that is linked is the option you can change to Selecting a smaller number than the current displayed one will restart the video at a lower bandwidth setting.

I have found that its best to disable your firewall and NIS before initiating Launch After Launch starts loading, then, you enable your NIS and firewall b/c for some strange reason I find that Launch comes into conflict with avi and firewall programs.
