    I am using IE7 (Beta 3) and OSNN works perfectly. It has since Beta 1.

    Do you have issues with any other side? Have you deleted the temp files and cookies? There is a report that a certain update released last week is causing issues with IE.

    You might want to clear the add-ons for IE7 or repair the installation.

    I am using IE7 with no problems. Is there anything in particular you are doing when it hangs other than loading the page?

    It could also be down to some bad .dll files, have you tried checking to see if any of your system is damaged by using the run command and entering sfc /scannow ?

    well i did a scan with avg, and although its not a virus it found it said it could not read the mbr and that is could be damaged, is there any way to fix this without formatting the drive?

    You realize that flaw only effects IE6, not IE7, right?

    Boot to the Recovery console, select your XP installation and type FIXMBR

    i was thinking of that, but the only issue is that sometimes it can damage the partition so it is unreadable.... your thoughts?

    I assume it's possible, although I've never seen it. Whenever something like that is attempted you should always make a backup of your data beforehand regardless.

    I don't really see it being an issue.

    i think i had some sort of attack or i have a virus in the mbr itself.... although it could just be me being paranoid, my drive really did need to be degragmented, it showed up mostly as read in the defrag program. L:)

    FIXMBR has never let me down nor done any harm... FWIW
