IE7 keeps hanging on Vista

  legalrep 16:14 17 Nov 2008

For the past 2-3 weeks IE7 keeps crashing every now and then sometimes 3 0r 4 times. Never had this problem until recently not sure if an update has caused this but would be interested if anyone else has had a similar problem I have written below the fault report should any one understand what it all means perhaps they could decipher it for me!

A problem caused this program to stop interacting with Windows.

try running ie7 without add ons see if it makes a difference

How do I disable add on's and will they effect anything, I ask because I have also had problems with video on website's ie on the soccer am website if I watch any of the clips they start then stop load etc etc it can take 15 minutes to watch a 5 min clip!

goto - tools - internet options - adv tab - hit the reset button.

Thanks Sunnystains I have done this about a week ago I read a another thread which advised doing this but problem has returned! Any other ideas?

a scan with superantispyware & malawarebytes, free versions will do.

if that fails SFC /SCANNOW

do you use ccleaner? if not could be worth having a clean up click here

also if you close all programs and windows and open task manager does your system idle run at over 90%
