My Internet Explorer freezes when I launch it unless I have the add-ons disabled. It then can't be closed by clicking on the close button and I have to shut it down using End Task

Hello john50000 and welcome to Geeks to Go!

Sounds like you are on the right track and one of the add-ons is causing an issue. If it is happening in IE7, try resetting your browser by going into Tools | Internet Options, click the Advanced tab, and click the Reset button.

This may or may not be related: Microsoft Security Update Cripples Internet Explorer.

This is the one to check as to whether you had it installed: MS07-069: Cumulative security update for Internet Explorer
