Help! New Windows Hanging, Address Bar Disappears, Outlook Links D

G

Guest

Hi, I've been reading somewhat similar problems, but the solutions haven't
been working for me. I've got Windows XP, MS Office 2003 w/Outlook, latest IE
w/all service packs installed. I've checked for spyware. Help, I'm go'in
crazy.

For the past couple weeks I've been having these problems:
1. Initial IE window opens okay. Try to open new window and it hangs --
white space and hourglass.
2. I noticed the address bar in IE keeps disappearing. I check this toolbar
and it's fine for a while then disappears again. When the window refreshes
it's hidden behind the webpage.
3. Links from Outlook are hanging same as I noted above. If IE is closed,
first link will work okay. Trying to open additional windows hangs.
4. I notice that when I try to open a page and it starts to hang, the fan on
my laptop immediately gears up like it's working overtime.

Thanks for any help!

Update/reinstall your scripting engines from here:
http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/default.asp?url=/downloads/list/webdev.asp

If no joy, go to File Types (My Computer...Tools...Folder Options...File
Types tab)
Scroll down to the URL: Hypertext Transfer Protocol file type, click to
highlight, click Edit, click Open, click Edit (slightly different with Me -
click to highlight, click Advanced, click Open, click Edit).

Application used: "C:\PROGRA~1\INTERN~1\iexplore.exe" -nohome
Use DDE box should be checked
DDE Message: "%1",,-1,0,,,,
Application: IExplore
DDE...not running: <blank>
