:thumbsup: This is a problem that is driving me crazy. I load IE and 10 to 15 times each day because it freezes and says (Not Responding). It seems to happen when I click some links but there is no common element to them.

I have tried reinstalling IE but did not help. As far as I have seen, my Vista 32, Home Premium does not freeze any where else. This has been going on for 4 months.

I bought this machine 8/07 but was totally frustrated with Vista. I reworked my old XP and used it from 12/07 until 9/08 when the XP laptop keyboard started to pop the keys making typing impossible. They just would not fasten down any more. So I restarted the Vista.

I use the McAfee which I get through Cox Communications.

I did try to download the Toshiba graphic mobile Intel 945 Express Chip Set for my machine. I think Windows was saying there was a problem with it. I went to Intel and did a download even after I ran Intel's trouble shooter which said there was nothing wrong with it. That did not help either.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Go to Start and type "iexplore -extoff" (without the quotes) and press Enter.
This will launch Internet Exporer with all the add-ons disabled. Use that for a while to see if the problems come back - that will help to tell if it's the add-ons or it's deeper in the OS.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

Thanks for that link, I think it will work.

I will be working with it, BUT, why is it that I run into these things?? For instance, Method 1, Line 4 says 'Click to select the "Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click OK"' but there is no line like that to be found?

I really am pleased to have found this site, and appreciate all the help so far! :thumbsup:

Pat

Hi Pat,

When you open Internet Explorer 7.

Click Tools, and then click Delete Browsing History.

You should see this window:

click Delete All.

You should then see this window:

Click to select the Also delete files and settings stored by add-ons check box, and then click YES.


:thumbsup:

That's a useful and nicely designed answer, Red Dawn.

Have you any problems with me taking your canned speech for my use? :thumbsup:

Just a little note about my progress.

I decided to disable everything and enable as I became confident one worked alright. I have not had any problems with freezing any more, but have only 're enabled' a few of the addons.

One thing that makes me wonder, is that despite being disabled, and the IE7 shut down, and PC shut down multiple times, some of the addons still worked. Notably was a spell check that I needed for my blog. In the first place, I had to reinstall it multiple times to get it to work. It did not coinside with my freezing problems. It is still disabled, but does work.

Any thoughts on that??

You have been a real help to me. My frustrations are few, and I so appreciate that!!

Pat :thumbsup:

Hi Pat,

Glad to hear IE7 is no longer freezing on you, not really sure about the spellchecker, sorry.
