Lately, I have been getting bombarded with calls from friends and family. Everybody keeps asking me why Internet Explorer has suddenly started locking up on them. I haven’t personally experienced this problem, but judging by all of the phone calls that I have been getting, it seems that the problem is wide spread. I can also tell you that the problem seems to be affecting Windows Vista users who are running Internet Explorer 7.
I haven’t been able to reproduce this problem, but if I had to guess, there was probably a buggy patch that was released somewhere along the way. I have been telling people to try downloading the Internet Explorer 8 beta. So far this seems to be correcting the issue.
