IE7 locks up when accessing Microsoft Discussion Groups
This doesn't make any sense. IE7 started locking up when I go to the
Microsoft Discussion Groups and do any kind of search.

The main URL is: http://www.microsoft.com/communities...ps/list/en-us/

It just stops responding. Has there been an update which messed with IE7?

I have Vista 32-bit Ultimate installed.

I have to use Mozilla Firefox to access the Microsoft Discussion Groups now.

Thanks

Do yourself a BIG favour and ditch the horrible web interface. Use a news
reader instead.

Re: IE7 locks up when accessing Microsoft Discussion Groups
Instead of frustrating yourself by trying to read a newsgroup through a
web interface, read this newsgroup and all newsgroups the proper way:
with a newsreader. Outlook Express is your newsreader in Windows XP. In
Windows Vista it's Windows Mail. Your troubles will vanish.
