PC freezes when closing IE7

  Cluelessone 12:55 26 Oct 09

Boys and Girls, your assistance please:

All updates from Microsoft

Often, when IE is closed or sometimes a tab is closed I get a freeze. Leaving the pointer active but everything else frozen.

Have disabled all the obvious add-ons such as google tool bar, etc.

Any tips appreciated.

Have you tried restoring IE?

I can't remember where the button for this is in IE7, but in 8 it can be found at Tools>Internet Options>Advanced tab.

Be sure to read the details of what you will lose if you carry out a restore. I think it's mainly your favourites list, plus temp files, etc.

Thanks for that. I've tried it. Fingers crossed!

IE may still be linked to Windows Explorer as in the past, so one of the files may be corrupt. you could try running SFC /SCANNOW from Run
