    When I try to restart or shutdown my laptop, it comes up with the message

    IEXPLORE.EXE

    This program is not responding

    Each time I click on end now, the same message keeps coming up until sometimes I have to force quit using the power button. The longer the computer has been running (I usually only close the lid after working on it) the more times the 'not responding 'message comes up and I eventually have to force quit. I usually have decided to restart because of such problems as, the computer not recognising a thumbdrive or double clicking the internet icon will not launch the program. After restarting, all is well for a while.
    I would be grateful for some assistance.

    What version of IE are you using ?
    If you are on IE 6 then can you please try upgrading to IE7 and then see if the problem persists ??
