Currently using IE7. it just hangs whenever i tried to type sth in the google search box or any other places. But it's ok if i typed it in the address bar. I tried using nod32 and norton to scan but no virus found. i also used ad aware but no critical errors found. firefox works fine. i also tried uninstalling and reinstall but the problem still exist. when in safe mode ie7 works perfectly. didnt install any new programmes recently.
Whenever ie hangs, a msg saying 'drwatson postmortem debugger not responding' appears. looking forward to your reply. thx in advance.

I have posted in the Malware forum before, and the tech support there asked me to post here, saying that my logs are clean. pls help me to solve the problem. really appreciate all the help.

Try running in No Add Ons mode. Start>All Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Internet Explorer (No Add-ons).

If it works fine, then manage your add ons, in IE7 (running normally) click tools on the menu and select Internet Options, next click the Programs tab, then Manage add-ons. Try disabling one by one to see which one is causing the problem.

Try to remove IE7 in Control panel > add/remove programs. This will roll you back to IE6. See if it works well. Latter on, if you wish to use IE7 (something I wouldn't do), download it from Microsoft or get it with automatic windows updates.

I saw something similar to this before... but it was caused by another program. Since it works in IE7, it would seem to make sense.
Do you see any error messages come up when you start the computer?

Try to repair IE6:

Click Start > Search > all files and folders. At the bottom, at "more advanced options". tick all the options. In "all or part of file name" type ie.inf. Run a search. Right click ie in c:\windows\inf and in the menu choose install. This will repair IE. Let us know what happens.

By all means. At least you have firefox working, so there is nothing urgent.
