IE BLANK PAGE freezes computer

  ElderlyGentleman 17:43 12 Apr 2008

My wife has a Gateway notebook with Vista basic. Since day one this computer has randomly popped up a blank page that can be closed only by going to 'Task Manager'.

Task Manager displays 'Internet Explorer Blank Page' and 'not responding'. Pressing 'end now' makes the problem go away.

There is no noticeable action, such as opening a particular program or going on the internet that creates this. As far as I can tell it is completely random.

Can anyone offer advice?

Thanks in advance.
