    Default Internet Explorer freezes up when searching

    I'm having a problem with internet explorer freezing up when searching and clicking through to the site. After a few searches when I click on a search result, ie freezes and won't open the site that I clicked on.

    I've already take the following steps:

    (1) Ran malware detection tools including ms malware removal, spybot, adware, malewarebytes and Hijackthis.
    (2) Deleted all cookies, history, add-ons and toolbars.
    (3) Cleaned the XP cache.
    (4) Cleaned the Registry
    (5) Uninstalled ie8 and ie7. Then reinstalled

    Any ideas?

    Yes, I think you may try to uninstall the IE and reinstall it from the windows cd.

    here are aplenty of reasons as to why Internet Explorer freezes up. By identifying the reasons to this matter, it will help you to understand Internet Explorer better, and chances are, you will get to minimize the opportunities of getting a frozen screen the next time you surf the World Wide Web.Check out these sleek tips and tricks that you can adopt to ensure that your web surfing experience with Internet Explorer, is a stress-free one:
    1. Keeping yourself up to date with the updates for Internet Explorer can help you truckloads. Nothing is perfect and even Internet Explorer have its moments too. Bug fixes and patches are just some of the possible things that you might want to keep a look out for as these quick fixes can help to solve the problem of Internet Explorer freezing. If you think that there is a need, you can also contact their support system to report them of the troubles that you are facing. You might just be lucky that you have helped them to identify a new bug. Alternatively, you can always get the latest version of Internet Explorer. The latest versions are always equipped with the necessary bug fixes that your version might lack of.



    1. You might never know it, but sometimes the problems of Internet Explorer freezing up lies within your PC itself. The problem could lies within your RAM. RAM or also known as Random Access Memory is a component in your computer that stores all the necessary data that is needed to run programs and things alike. What happens is that if you have a puny RAM, then quite possibly you will have to face the problem of a laggy computer and freeze ups more often. To solve this problem, simply install more RAM, if your computer is equipped for it. However, just be prepared, you may have to invest a hefty sum of money for good quality RAM (direct from your PC manufacturer).



    1. When something goes terribly wrong, it also good to do a simple virus scan or spyware scan. These scans are necessary as sometimes errors that are present in the PC, are due to these pesky virtual pests that can destroy your PC. So keep a virus and spyware scan software on your computer at all times.

    Try another browser and see if it does the same. Disable all the add ons in IE and test, turning them on one by one.

    Did you tried scanning with kaspersky ?
    I mean your PC might be infected with some virus and kaspersky is the best antivirus !!

    Also, I suggets you to use FF or chrome..

    Get anything besides IE... try firefox, chrome, or opera after you backup and reformat your PC.

    Have you tried doing a system recovery, after backing up your programs?
