Maybe your security or firewall is blocking them.
Does it recover on it's own... how do you "unfreeze it".

To unfreeze it i have to open windows task manager to close the browser otherwise it just stays frozen for ages

If your PC's Hard Drive is Fragmented, it will take a while to open the .exe because it has to scour the Hard Drive for the right pieces of information. Try Defragging.
