Hi, recently I have experienced the following problems with IE7. When browsing connection to a new page or link becomes very slow, when I try to go back I cannot and the internet connection seems to freeze. The only way I can come out is via the task manager. Often when this problem has occurred I cannot then shut down the PC and I have to use the on switch. After reboot everything is back to normal.
I have Vista Home Premium, run AVG free and Zone Alarm. I have checked out Internet Options and everything is OK. I have tried scans with AdAware and Spybot, even Windows Defender and found no nasties. (By the way none of those spyware programmes are active unless I run a scan). I would be grateful for any advice (not too technical please, I'm an old guy with little expertise).
Previously I got error messages, ""uk.yahoo (homepage) is not set up to establish a connection port "world wide web" service http with this computer" but this has not occurred for a while.
