Re: internet explorer wont respond
I also have this same problem on both my home computer and my work computer.
Since downloading IE8, everytime I try to start up, I get two windows
opening, both freeze up, I then need to shut it down through my task manager,
the start again. I am operating WinXP at home and WinXP Professional at
work. At home I have Norton Antivirus and at work we have McAfee.
The problem has gotten so bad that I generally now use Google Chrome.
Please provide information on how to fix this, or I will not use IE anymore.
