Internet explore problem


OSNN Newbie
I have just got a new computer, with Windows XP Home service pack 2. One of the few things I have installed on it is Norton System Works 2005. Also Ad-Aware.
I am getting a recurring problem with Internet Explore. Basically the following:
Explorere hangs, either on start up or when I click a link from one site to the next.
When I try to close it I get the error message that the program is not responding.

When I click End Now I get You chose to end the nonresponsive program, Internet Explorer

The program is not responding, please tell Microsoft about this problem.

Data in the error report:

Error signature

szAppName : IEXPLORE.EXE szAppVer : 6.0.2900.2180 szModName : hungapp

szModVer : offset : 00000000

Technical information on the error report:



Can anyone help? Obviously I don't want to lose my virus protection by simpling uninstalling Norton.

Ah! I turned off Windows firewall and opening a link to another page worked! the question is should I have windows firewall or Norton Internet Worm protection turned on?


Norton on (and it's sub features) XP firewall OFF! Suprised NIS didn't tell you to disable it when trying to install NIS.

Check the security centre control panel to make sure it's like this:

i'm gonna have to agree with Firebrand.... when i saw the title of this thread i was like "well, your first problem is going to be that you're using that browser"

dont use ie, use firefox, and remove norton system works, it sucks, use avg antivirus, norton doesnt pick up viruses somtimes that are already in the system, had that effect on many of my friends pcs, avg is free, and better and lighter on the system. and also get spybot, it usually has to accompany ad-aware to get the best results, and the windows xp firewall is stupid i would use another firewall if u really need it.

i agree with themafia...if u want a good firewall, i recommend testing Zonelab's ZoneAlarm Pro. Its really easy to use and you can customize it to your heart's content :).

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there
