First, thanks to all who take time out of their busy lives to help out folks like me!

 

My computer will hang several times an hour and I have considered a failing drive (as the drive light is always full on during the hang), a bad drive controller, a bad graphics card, a bad power supply and so on.  It still may well be one or more of those, but I did notice an entry in my task list that is always there when this happens, and when I stop it, the computer immediately unfreezes.  Plus, anything that I am working on continues as if nothing happend, so it doesn't seem to be connected to anything I am running.  Here is the task as listed in Task Manager:

 

rundll.exe C:\windows\system32\inetclp.cpl, ClearMyTracksByProcess Flags:25035 WinX:759 WinY:307 IEFrame:000602C2

 

It has the feel of something graphics related and yet virus related.  Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

 

Many thanks,

Ataribravo

Well, I may have found the answer.  It usually happens that way right after I decide to ask for help!  :bubbles:

 

I will confirm if this is indeed the fix after a day or two of confirmation.  I had "Delete browsing history on exit" check in the IE options, and read elseware that similar issues to mine were caused by that setting.  I turned it off and we'll see of that does the trick.

That should work.

 

How do I clear my web browser's cache, cookies, and history?


How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook

After 10 hours on the computer everything is running great!  Microsoft owes me a toupee for all the hair I've pulled out trying to figure this one out...   :smash:
