Whenever I click a link on a webpage on Explorer 7, it freezes up and does not respond to any command. When I click to force it to close on task manager and I click end now, it does not respond. I can open up another instance of Explorer 7 and fly away but this is just getting very annoying... any help?

Hi Ryan 3000,

Does the problem persist if you Reset IE7 Settings (RIES)?
Important. Read this before using; How to use Reset Internet Explorer Settings (RIES).

If that doesn't work, you may have a flawed install of IE7.

-Uninstall IE7 (which automatically returns you to IE6) by following These instructions by a Micro$oft MVP.
-Uninstall all toolbars and third-party Windows Themes, including Window Blinds.
-If the behavior does NOT persist in IE6, reinstall IE7 by following These pre-install instructions and using Windows Downloads as the installation source, not Automatic/Windows Update.

If the behavior does persist in IE6, Do Not reinstall IE7 at this point and post back in this thread.
Chaos reigns within.
Reflect, repent, and reboot.
Order shall return.

My sincere advice is to not use IE unless you absolutely require to, or have some irrational love for it. It is better to go with Firefox or Opera, both of which are more secure and feature-rich than IE.
