    It is few days that IE tends to freeze while surfing the web. No special indication.

    Here is the Event Viewer Application Error report

    "Hanging application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16544, hang module hungapp, version 0.0.0.0, hang address 0x00000000."

    Any help appreciated

    Thx

    Restart Internet Explorer.

    thx. I did it. Now I have to check if IE remains stable enough. I understand that all these things like Norton, google, yahoo banners may cause IE to crash...
