Can someone help please. After roughly one hour of browsing, suddenly IE freezes and wont let me surf anymore unless I restart the computer. I can however, use Windows Mail, and receive updates from spyware programmes etc; so there is a connection. Its as if IE has 'timed out' and basically locked me out. When I restart everything is fine again.

I am using Vista SP 1
Zone alarm firewall
Avast anti virus

** I have disabled all the 'Not verified' items in 'Manage Add-ons' which were all Java. (SSV helper was disabled first, but after a few hours, the net locked up again) I have now disabled 'Java plug in' and (this version appears twice).
Theres nothing else 'Not verified' in there.

HP tech support have asked me to do a hard drive check, but I dont think its that.
Can anyone help please.
