Periodically on youtube IE8 goes into non responding mode .I have to close via Task manager which closes all Tabs . Then when I open explorer again I have to choose twixt going to the disturbed session or my homepage .Jeez why would anyone go back to a page that gave aproblem and if they did surely that would be after they reopened Explorer on their homepage first .Is there anyway to disable this feature
Found this very interesting as I've been having a lot of trouble recently with Internet Explorer 8 "not responding", then the annoying message on re-try, so I now know what to do about it!
However, my problem with Explorer 8 became terminal, couldn't use it at all, so, as suggested in another ongoing thread, I reset it. Now it is running in "no add-ons" mode and has only faulted once since.
Question: is their a bigger problem with Internet Explorer 8 as there are quite a few of us having issues??
eedcam, sorry to hijack the thread a bit but to answer clock, I use IE8 on a tiny netbook with XP and hasn't given me the 'not responding' message yet. I've the usual addons, java, flash, McAfee site advisor, etc and even trusteer rapport. What I don't have is an ad-blocker. I use Spywareblaster only for that. Security is M.S.E. with Malwarebytes and SAS free versions.
Just thinking it could be something to do with Security software or your addons that crash IE?
