over the last few months ive experienced numerous ie7hangs,they dont seem to be site specific its just random Have read posts on here and others majority of which advise disabling the "add ons"for me thats not worked,when it hangs i get the "not reponding" message,i go into task manager close ie7 and windows restarts it Have done all the usual mal\spyware scans System is a vista based pc any suggestions appreciated
Do what I did .Shift to Firefox temporary until IE7 sorts itself out.Or try Command prompt and type in ipconfig /flushdns small space between ipconfig and forward slashor it does not work.Ok.It should tell you DNS cache has been flushed if so reboot and see if its any better.
Have you tried Tools.Internet Options.Advanced and press restore advanced settings and see if that works.or back to Advanced and press reset.That will reset I/E7 to its original state.You may then need to go back into add-ons and enable them all again.Also if you have SpywareBlaster installed open it and make sure everything is enabled as it sometimes disables some of the protection.
howard64 if i cant find a solution i will change the browserbuteman,ive done the restore bit and disabled all add ons,super anti spyware is the program i use and its enabled,done all this previously but it hasnt solved the problemdid the dns flush some weeks ago but the problem still reoccursthanks anyway
provider2 that made interesting reading its not only me,sadly ive no windows live toolbar plug ins that i can see so i cant disable them buteman msybe maybe not?ill be honest this started when i changed my internet connection from 20mb down to 10mb,browsing became slow and ie7 would freeze,virgin replaced the modem saying it was faulty and after the change things have been ok but its started reoccurring again
