Sometimes when I go to close a website page I've been on, it freezes and then will say "website not responding" next to Windows IE at the top. Then if I click it to close it again it closes ALL of my open sites and shuts down IE and I have to start over and get back online. It seems to be doing this more and more often.
I am using IE 8.0 with Aol (9.0?)
Win XP Prof. SP3
AMD Athlon 64
What's the problem and how do I fix this?

It seems that your IE is freezing. This may be because of many reasons. You should start with running IE8 without any add-ons. Right click on the IE shortcut on your desktop and select Start without Add-ons. Check if your IE still freezes.
