    Does explorer completely crash?

    Example: Task bar and all icons disappearing for 5-10 seconds then reappearing?

    OR is it just Internet Explorer browser that is crashing?

    Also, please post HJT log.

    OK that site uses Java so do you have Sun Java?
    I just went there and did a fly over of my address. :D
    All worked ok for me too.

    But here is a site like that but it does not use java.
