Every so often, IE will stop opening tabs (leaving them saying "Connecting...", it'll jump to it and freeze the entire computer, requiring a forced power-off) or opening a new tab without some toolbars (like right now it won't display my SiteAdvisor toolbar, Norton toolbar or status bar) and disabling right-click on any area on the entire computer except the area just below the typing space (which, upon right-clicking, says the previously mentioned toolars are selected), why? What can I do? Has anyone experienced this before? By the way, I'm using Vista Home Premium (sadly) and I would switch but my toolbars will not work on anything except IE (and Firefox somewhat for two of them, even then they do not function fully). Thanks in advance!

Could you please post a screenshot showing your toolbars, and maybe your IE7 addons via the Tools menu.
I'm interested to see what toolbars we're actually talking about.
Also, if these toolsbars were meant to interect with a specific version of Windows they may casue this.

Oddly enough it sounds like you're describing a virus.

For that reason please open the start menu,
type "event viewer: in the search dialogue box and click on event viewer.
open the windows logs and select Applications.

Select the topmost event, and hold the shift key.
then click the last event in the list.
This selects all the events..

Click "Save Selected events" on the right and save the file to your
desktop as a Tab Delimited Text file, and give it an appropriate name.

Then upload the file here for analasys.
This will help determine what's happening when you PC freezes.

If you want to avoid all of this hassle, just remove you toolbars, or at the
very least "My SiteAdvisor"

Here's the screenshot you asked for; Posted Image
I don't know what you mean my "upload" for the eventviewer text, whenever I try to copy and paste it IE freezes, do I need to upload it to a download site?

Sorry for the late reply.

I would ask you to remove the yahoo toolbar and restart your computer.

Also you can delete temporary internet files by choosing Tools from the menu bar and select Delete Browsing history.

From there, click Delete All too clean up internet explorer.
That should do the trick.

If that doesn't I would ask you to search for the event viewer from the Start:Search box.

I'll show you how.

When you follow the first picture, you'll get a prompt asking you to continue after clicking on Event Viewer.
Click continue and you will be shown the event viewer in the next pic.

Then filter the logs by following the next pics.

I missed this Pic

Ackk!... go to your control panel, then to "Programs and Features". Uninstall the 'Ask toolbar' or 'My Web Search'!

Using Windows Explorer, navigate to C:\Program Files\ and delete the folder that corresponds with either of these.

Thanks guys, I've done what you said Jacee, will that fix the issue? Also, off-topic, whose that in your avatar; it looks like a certain soldier of love from an anime I love.
RandomUser: I'll try what you've suggested depending on what Jacee replies as I do not want to remove the Yahoo toolbar unless necessary as it automatically tells me if I have mail, thanks!

Sorry for the double post, but it's been a while so I think it's alright, right? I
ve done as you said RandomUser and have saved the new, filtered event log, what would you like me to do with it? As I've said, I cannot paste it here as whenever I try to IE freezes, what can I do? Thanks in advance!
