Internet Explorer 6 keeps hanging my computer

  BiscuitsCakes 10:53 12 Aug 2003

I have recently installed Windows XP onto my PC, everything is working great apart from when i am surfing the net. At various times my computer freezes, nothing will work, and i have to turn it off and reboot. Has anyone else encountered this problem? I am running IE5.5 on my laptop and that is fine. Is it a problem with IE6, i have heard it can be a pain.

you could try:

Put your XP CD in the tray and let it fire up. Close it down then go Start > Run and type in ( or copy and paste this ) sfc /scannow - note space between c and /. This will check all your system files are not corrupted / damaged.
Alternatively, try a repair of IE6 by going to
