1. Try running the disk defragmenter (and run it regularly if you don't already).

2. Empty 'temporary internet files' after every long browsing session'.
There's a fast, sure and easy way of doing this using the free 'ccleaner' available here: http://www.ccleaner.com/

3. If using IE6, the size of the browser cache may be set too high (the default is too high). From within IE go to Tools>Internet Options. Under the 'General' tab, where it says "Temporary Internet Files" click "settings". Change the value of "disk space to use" to a figure between 50-250 (you can type it in exactly rather than using the slider) then click OK to save the changes.

ok I will try diskdefragmentor.I used to clean cookies and file and history by going into internet properties but recently i have discovered that even after clicking that my temfiles,cookies and history are not getting deleted.I decided to del them manually but they are comming back again after i close and open the IE6 window.I think the reason behind hanging is this that temfiles are not getting deleted.
