I have the same problem and have had it for many months. I have already deleted all yahoo cookies. I have always deleted temp internet files every time I log off. I have defraged PC more than once. None of these things help. I have tried alot more things as well but nothing helps.
I have had just a few other web sites that have locked up as well. Maybe 2% of web sites. All sites that lock are busy as the status bar starts slowly and crawls forward for about 10 seconds before no advance. THe Windows Banner continues to wave and I still have control of the mouse but can not close out IE as it then says IE not responding. When I try to stop IE with Task Manager I get the usual Internet Explorer is not responding. What is wierd is that I can not shut the PC down from the start menu and the screen appears that all my memory at that point is totally unavailable. I at this point usualy loos control of the mouse totally locked up and must shut off power to the PC.
I am sure I have no viruses or any other issues but the PC locking up when using IE at certain sites. I set my privacy level to low but no luck. I set Advanced tab to defaults and no luck.
I run Norton Anti-Virus, Zone Alarm Firewall. For what it is worth I manage startup files with Scotty's Win Patrol and I run Google Pop Up Blocker. I am running XP without the service pack 2.
I have decent PC maintenance skills but this one has been the tuffest problem I have ever had. I of course can not log on to Yahoo to email them with my problem.
If any one has advice, I would very much appreciate the help. Thanks, Gary H
