Getting too many Iexplore errors and what do I need running?

OS: Windows ME
Pentium IV Processory 1.4 GhZ (why do I always envision Doc Brown saying that?)

Internet Explorer version 5.50.4134.0600

As of late i've been getting a lot of errors that close individual windows out. How can I take care of this? It's a variety of stuff that seems to be doing this, hitting refresh, right-clicking, opening links in new windows.

How can I pinpoint the source of the error or does it sound like something to which there's a fairly simple solution to?

Also I noticed the following things were running when I did the Ctrl+Alt+Del trick. Anyone know what these are and if I need them. I'm certain they weren't running when I first started with my computer:

mdm
ctfmon

They seem to be come back even after I Ctrl + Alt + Del their asses too.

And do I need the wkupdate to run (The Microsoft Works Update Detection thing?)

This is what I do ...

I would run something like Norton Utilities and do the WinDoctor and maybe DiskDoctor just in case. The WinDoctor will clean up various errors which may solve your problem.

As for the background processes you mentioned I do not know exactly what they are but one of the them is a "monitor" program for ctm or whatever it is. It's obviously monitoring whatever program you have in the background. If you don't delete this from startup using msconfig then it will come back everytime you boot up your comp. Not to mention that it will also use up precious resources that you doesn't need to happen. If worse comes to worse you can always reinstall IE and hope that does the trick.
