Hi, Most of the time when I type in a web address that IE session freezes and when I try to shut it down, I get the program not responding, End now/Cancel message. When select, end now, the frozen sessions and some others may be closed down. I have followed instructions from the Microsoft error reporting, including clearing all temporary files, removing Yahoo toolbar but none of these has worked.
The trouble with ie is it cant be trualy removed and reinstalled from scratch which would solve alot of problems. You can thank microsucks for the stupid idea of intergrating it into explorer. Out of interst why cant you use firefox as your defult browser? I do so and havent touched ie in 2 years now! Try installing ie 7 and see if that sorts the problem for you. it is still in beta or release candidate form but should be usable. Security is questionable with is though as the purpouse of betas and rc are to iron out the bugs and security flaws. Any case ie sux for security fulstop. Most secure one im aware of is opera but it lacks the features of firefox.
I use Avast for anti virus and Adware. I am just used to ie and I switch whenever I have problems with ie. I started to use Firefox sometime ago but stopped as too many sites were not working properly, it does not work on my online bank and sometimes the look and feel of some sites are not right. Though I have noticed recently that I am using it more often as I not getting as many problems as before.
If no one ever uses Firefox then sites wont be changed to work with other browsers and ie wins simple as that. USe it even if the sites dont diplay properly. I use 22.214.171.124 and have very few problems with it. Mosts sites are changing to suport it now and other browsers.
