Re: Unresponsive IE7
I don't use CA, but I also suspect that this is the problem. Trend-Micro's
software does something similar sometimes. It seems to load the [blocked]
advertisements as separate pages, so a single 'back button' click will take
you to the blocked ad which gets blocked again, so nothing appears to
happen. When you run into this situation, click the small drop-down arrow
to go back multiple pages at a time.
