After more than a year of no-problem use of IE7, last week I downloaded MS's security upgrade. Since then IE7 has repeatedly frozen up (at least once a day). Whan I "Tell MS about this error" it reports it as a Windows problem, but offers no solution except to check for updates (there are none). There doesn't seem to be any pattern in the type of site I am on when it freezes, this morning it was at nytimes.com, last night at a photographer's site, before that at my remote email site. I don't knowingly visit high risk sites, porn, gaming, online gambling, shopping, etc.

Re: IE7 freeze since security upgrade
It was to patch some holes they have in the browser, there is a patch available and that may be causing the problem, but it is more likely a bug you picked up from this recent msft blunder. Try a "restore" and if it's not inconvienient it should fix the problem. Try running a spyware scan with Spybot search and destroy, it's free and most folks that use it swear by it, make sure that you get it fom them, as there are many websights that mimick their software and also charge people for a free program, good luck,Gym

IE8 runs slightly slower than IE7 due to the fact that it has more built-in security features and additional features. Also, some antivirus softwares and too much unused / accumulated data in the form of temporary internet files and cookies in your PC slow-down the browsing experience.
To clean up temporary internet files, click on the Tools button on the IE toolbar, select Internet Options from the menu which comes up. Then on the General page, under Browsing History section click on Delete button. Then you can select the items which you want to delete, then click on Delete> click on OK.
Have you thought about updgrading to internet explorer 8? I personally use firefox now after years of being upset with internet explorer for various reasons, I believe it to be a superior browser to ie. If you are unable to upgrade from ie7 to ie8 because of license issues, firefox is not just a great alternative, but a superior alternative one should consider, IMHO.
1. Uninstall and reinstall IE7 and let me know how it work.
2. Also check on windows website if you operating system is compatible with that.
3. you can also installed microsoft autoupdate to installed upto date drivers. Which should solve the issues.
If you can access other web pages without a problem, try clearing out your cookies, one way is to click tools, internet options, then click delete, I would choose delete all unless your concerned about your passwords being saved. Another way is to go to www.filehippo.com and download ccleaner, install it, run it, click run cleaner, and just for good measure I would clean and fix the registry too!
there arent any problems with your n360 and upgrading your norton doenst hurt either. you should check microsoft your update fixes on your Microsoft office. microsoft might even give you an upgrade for your office.
switching to the latest microsoft office might also ge rid of the problem.
