I don't know if any of these will help, but try some of these instead of
1. Go to Control Panel ->Turn Windows Features on or off ->deselect
Internet Explorer 8
After doing this, reboot and then select Internet Explorer again
2. I can't remember whether Vista came with Internet Explorer 7 or 8 (I
moved straight from XP to 7, so I can't remember what Vista came with), so
if Internet Explorer 8 is listed in your list of installed programs, you can
either uninstall it from there or if there is an option to repair it, you
can try that.
Sometimes this locking up stuff happens only with some random programs
because of some problem or corrupted file. I don't know if it will help or
not, but you could try running some of the utilities such as CheckDisk,
Defrag, or VirusScan. Even if these don't help, it never hurts to run them
once in a while (and who knows, they might end up finding something else?).
Other than these suggestions, I'm not sure what to tell you to do. If none
of my suggestions help, maybe somebody else will have some ideas. Good Luck!
