Windows 7 Home Edition, SP 1

Lately I have noticed a strange behavior with IE 9 (version 9.0.8112.16421). Here is the scenario. I log into my account and launch IE. When I try to go to any web site, IE hangs - I get the "not responding" message. I then exit from IE (sometimes using task manager). Once I relaunch IE, it works fine, even if I exit and relaunch IE several times. I have scanned my laptop for malware and nothing is noticed. Any thoughts?

Are you running any plugins(add ons) or toolbars? Try running IE without add-ons at first boot when the issue normally happens and see if it still freezes. Click the Start button Picture of the Start button, click All Programs, click Accessories, click System Tools, and then click Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If it is still freezing then try reseting internet explorer by clicking the gear at the top, clicking internet options, clicking the advanced tab then click reset.. button, this will reset all settings to their defaults so its up to you if you really want to do it. Also make sure you have all updates installed.
