IE window closes/crashes when a popup is window is opened

Hello,
I have an application which opens a popup window and the popup window has an applet in it..

The popup window works fine; but sometimes, 1 out of 5 times, when the popup window is opened, it looks like it is opening and then all of a sudden, both the parent and the child window closes automatically...

Any idea why..

Thanks for listening..

-Jay.

Have you looked at the error logs on the computer and see why IE is crashing?

I looked at the java console; no errors for the applet there.. No errors int he server logs/application logs. I see nothing useful in the event viewer..

I looked in the task manager to see if it is taking too much memory / CPU.. Doesn't look like..

Anything else I can look at?

The weird thing is sometimes, it crashes; sometimes not.. It is very unpredictable..

Thanks a lot Eric for your time..

You should not see the error on the server, it would in in the computer where IE sits.

With XP:
Start --> Control Panel --> Performance and Maintenance --> Administrative Tools --> Event Viewer --> System Log
