    This has just started happening, once IE 32 starts to open you cannot access
    anything else or shut it down. I have 2 other OS's on the same computer so
    I doubt it's hardware. Firefox works fine.

    Suggestions? Thanks.

    Unfortunately no. IE worked fine until this morning.

    That would suggest to me malware, file corruption, or plug-in
    incompatibility. Or a misbehaving firewall... Can you disable the firewall
    and try again? Does a cold-cycle reboot fix things?

  6. So what changed in the last 24-48 hours? Any new software installations?
    Different pattern of web surfing, etc?

    Whats taskmgr show you for CPU on iexplore?

    Taskmgr is totally unusable. I can't even shut IE down. What's interesting
    is now I run Firefox. Sometimes I click on something that brings IE up and
    it works fine. Other times bringing it up causes a total computer freeze.

    I am off tomorrow so I'll probably try to spend some time isolating this

  8. Sounds more like the nVidia firewall to me.

  9. Possibly a hardware issue as well. Have you removed the Nvidia software on
    the machine and noted any new changes?
