I am running XP Professional SP2. IE hangs on some web pages.MSN generally loads, but browsing the news stories occasionally hangs. Attempting to browse Fox News hangs every attempt. This site hangs occasionally.I uninstalled Microsoft JVM using the tutorial on this site, and installed the latest Java download. Problem still occured. Ran repair on IE using XP installation CD. Problem remains. I am open to any suggestions .

Hello and welcome to Bleeping Computer. Your problem
is a common one and pretty simple to fix. You have a
couple of options, really. You could grab that link in my
signature below (the HijackThis link) if you don't have the
program already. I strongly suggest you get it. It's the first
step in fighting hijacks and spyware attacks, etc... Refer to
the link for the information and the download. Once you have
the log ready, please post it in the HijackThis Logs and Analysis
forum. Our staff of experts will view the log and let you know
what needs to be done. Please make no attempt to make any
changes yourself. It's vital that only experts guide you on what
to do.
If you choose not to take that step, please get the HijackThis
program nonetheless. It's my first suggestion.
Your other option is to do a System Restore. Think back to when
this problem began and choose a system restore date on the
calendar accordingly. Just keep in mind that if you have done
any downloads or installations of any kind will have to be redone.
If you choose this method, download and install HijackThis afterwards
so you won't have to redo it.
For information and location of System Restore on your PC running
XP, please click here.

Let me know if either or both of these helped you. Good luck.

May I add another option?
Use a different, and oftentimes faster, browser---Firefox, a free open source browser that is certainly more secure that IE.
