Re: Windows Internet Explorer Not Responding

Hello,

Try running IE7 without add-ons

Go to Start > Programs > Accessories > System Tools > Internet Explorer 7
(No Add-ons) to start without any add-ons.

Close the browser and see whether the problem occurs again.

If the problem does not occur again, start IE7, go to Tools > Manage Add-ons
and disable all the add-ons and enable them one by one till the problem
appears and you get the culprit.

Also, try performing a spyware scan by downloading and running
SuperAntispyware from here

http://www.superantispyware.com
(the free HOME edition is sufficient for your needs)

Sing,

Would this workaround also work for IE6? I note the OP didn't say anything
about IE7. (I'm glad I'm sticking to 6)

Hi Lynn,
1... Click start >> Control Panel >> Double Click Network and Internet
Connections >> Double click Internet Options, on the IE Properties window
you will see these Options:
General | Security | Privacy | Content | Connections | Programs
| Advanced .

Click on General Tab (1st Tab on the left) and you will see a Button called
[ Clear History ..] click on it to clear your History caches, then click on
[Delete Files..] to delete Internet Files created over the time, click on [
Delete Cookies...] to delete your cookies left by visiting websites.

= Then try to Disable the Add-Ons on your Browser somehow installed on your
browser, On how to disable the Add-ons follow this:
Click on Programs Tab and then click the Manage Add-Ons Button there Disable
the None/Not Verified Plug-ins/Add-ons ( you need to Renable them one-by-one
later and see which is the culprit or you can send them here in your next
post) and click [OK] to confirm your Changes.

Click on Advanced Tab and scroll down under the browsing option and uncheck
this box:
[&] Browsing
[ ] Enable Third-Party browser extensions (Req Rest) and click Apply
then OK to close your IE Properties.

2.... And also for malware from here:
http://www.lavasoft.com/products/ad-...e_personal.php
http://www.safer-networking.org ; for Spybot S&D
Download and install after installing this software and
update then run a scan in both safe mode and normal:
http://free.grisoft.com/doc/5390/lng/us/tpl/v5

Run Disk CleanUp and Defrag in Safe Mode then Open a run command and type in:
sfc /scannow click [OK] you may need your XP CD handy to insert it in if
you been asked to do so by the system.

3... You may have a bad RAM try to test your RAM by running Memtest by
downloading this tool and unzip it and make a floppy or CD/DVD and run it on
Reboot.
http://www.memtest86.com/
You may need to reposition/reset the RAM sticks in their slots.

HTH.
