This happens every single time I go to a new website I have never been to.
Internet Explorer freezes and I have to close out and start over.
My version is 7.0.5296.0

I can't use FireFox or my computer slows down.

Hello LaChica

Your problem may or may not be related to malware. What type of anti-virus are you using and when was the last time you ran a scan? Have you performed any anti-spyware scans?

If not, start here:

Download and scan with Ewido Anti-Malware v3.5
Print out the Ewido Install and Scan Instructions.

Download and scan with Ad-Aware SE Personal. Setup & Configure as shown here.
Download and scan with Spybot S&D 1.4. Setup & Configure as shown here.
[DO NOT choose the option to install TeaTimer]
Note: If you encounter any error messages while downloading the updates, manually download them from here.

Then please download ATF Cleaner by Atribune.
This program is for XP and Windows 2000 onlyDouble-click ATF-Cleaner.exe to run the program.
Under Main "Select Files to Delete" choose: Select All.
Click the Empty Selected button.
If you use Firefox browserClick Firefox at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
If you use Opera browserClick Opera at the top and choose: Select All
Click the Empty Selected button.
NOTE: If you would like to keep your saved passwords, please click No at the prompt.
Click Exit on the Main menu to close the program.

If this does not help then follow the steps suggested in It's not always malware: How to fix the top 10 Internet Explorer issues, especially under Misc. issues.

Internet Explorer 7 is just a beta version and is full of bugs. I have yet to see it work properly.

As Albert stated, the problem may be with the fact you are using a Beta version of IE. I have IE7 installed but I never really use it because I have Firefox...it performs strangely sometimes and I know other people have had alot worse problems with it than me. You may want to consider rolling back to IE6 to see if that solves your problems.
