What does it mean when I get error - "iexplore.exe - Application Error"?

Question

Whenever I close down my Internet Explorer 6x, after about a few secconds or more (depending on how long I was using it, I get a nasty "THUMP" sound effect, and up comes the following message:

"iexplore.exe - Application Error

The insturuction at "0x02c2110b" referenced memory at "0x02c53a98". The memory could not be "read".

Click on OK to terminate the program"

It happens everytime and it's the same message everytime. Everything else works fine.
