    seems on a couple of sites right now, and only since this new box, the page won't complete...it just hangs unless I physically stop it

    this is with or without add blocking

    the address that the browser hangs is the address of the page, so it's not hanging on an add

    this didn't happen on my old box

    That happened to me about a year ago (after some settings I made to IE I think) so I don't remember all the details right off.

    But what I had to do that corrected the problem was add OSNN to my trusted sites in IE.

    Then around a month later it happened again (there again I tightened the settings in the firewall) so I set OSNN up in my firewall to allow.

    Was back to normal after that and been fine sense.

    Hey Perris. I've found a small .reg that has helped me solve a truckload of IE issues. While my superiors don't like it as it ruins their IE restrictions they've put on the image --- I've found it useful for getting my clients back into their intranet applications. I created a reverse of it to satisfy their concerns. ;)I've attached it as .txt - rename it to .reg and execute it (take a look first)

    What it does is simply delete all the IE keys that have to do with restrictions, trusted sites, etc... and you can change the home page it sets it to - I've set it to yahoo.com but it can be anything. Once it deletes the keys, it recreates them - with of course - no values in the keys (IE defaults)

    I'm not sure if it modifies any of the advanced settings.

    Here's how it's laid out. As you read through it, you get an idea what it's doing. For all you out there who face a restricted browser in the office, well here's your holy grail. Unless your admins restrict you (as they should) with group policies. They would overwrite the changes made by this file.

    REGEDIT4

    ; Unlocks the Homepage
    ; Restores all the tabs
    ; Removes all IE restrictions including Toolbar restrictions

    [-HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]

    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Internet Explorer\Control Panel]

    Have you tried flushing out the cache and temp internet files? This usually helps me when pages don't load up properly.

    Try this Perris:

    Open an ms-dos prompt window and type the following hitting enter after each line.
    regsvr32 Shdocvw.dll
    regsvr32 Shell32.dll
    regsvr32 Oleaut32.dll
    regsvr32 Actxprxy.dll
    regsvr32 Mshtml.dll
    regsvr32 Urlmon.dll

    Another good one is to go into safe mode and delete index.dat

    Nice. At least we are getting closer. I'll keep hunting. Try deleting index.dat.... it's in your documents and settings .... blah ... blah... Temporary Internet Files.

    Safe Mode, bring up command prompt, navigate to the directory and del index.dat

    Does it only do this in IE or does it do it in other browsers?
