    I'm not sure if there is a way to disable IE from saving jpegs to temporary internet files. Try going settings in IE and delete temporary internet files. It may look like it is froozen, but that can happen if there is alot to delete. Go grab a bite to eat or something while it goes!

    Another route would be going to properties on your C: drive and doing a disk clean up, temporary internet files are included in there.

    Thanks but the problem "fixed" itself, the last time I deleted my temp folder I didn't get a freeze and the folder emptied, why it worked now and not before I don't know.

    Its a good idea to regularly clear out cookies and temp files .. and make sure your cache is set to about 60 mb
    tools internet options temp internet files
