I have IExplorer 8, if that helps you any. This "Not Responding" happens a lot, often during searches, but also here on Naked Science Forum. It'll hang up, then, if I click on the webpage, specifically on the title bar or one of the tabs, the title bar shows "(Not Responding)". Sometimes it clears after several seconds, other times apparently not. Then I need to close the session and start again. Also, my McAfee SiteAdvisor icon often goes gray and does not do its job. So, how do I fix my IExplorer? Are the two problems related?
Check you don't have some objectionable "add-on" running in IE. If so, disable it. See: Tools - Manage Add-Ons
DiscoverDave I feel your pain. I get that all the time. God knows why! I'm running BitDefender so can't help you on that front. When my IE8 freezes and hangs all I do is click to close it, then most of the time you get that message saying program not responding, end now or cancel. Click end now. Then open up the task manager, ctrl+alt+del and then click the processes tab, find dumprep.exe and end that process. IE8 will then close. Open up IE8 again and it works fine.It's better than waiting for like 15 minutes to see if IE8 does anything productive while not responding.P.S I'm running Windows XP OS so that's what the instructions are for, but they are pretty self explanatory for other Windows OS.
... and with lots of other browsers on the horizon it's gonna be game over soon for IE.

Say hello to the beginning of the end of the monopoly!

If you were smart enough to anticipate the monopoly, why didn't you exploit it yourself?Did you see the opportunity but you decided not to exploit it for altruistic reasons?
Well, considering i was about 5 when microsoft started, i dont see any way i could have been able to do it, unless I mistakenly built a time machine from my lego and went forward to now when you asked me this question, and then went back in time to start building a browser with marbles.

I can see how that might have made things a bit difficult. I actually could have done something about it, although I didn't have the financial advantage that Gates started with, but I never did.
