    Apparent Lockup (Windows Vista Business 32 Bit)

    I just got a new laptop with Vista Business Edition (32 bit). What a change from XP. I have this issue where, sometimes the screen locks up, but if I scroll down with my touchpad the cursor will appear once it is in the taskbar, but goes behind the IE7 Window when I get above the taskbar. The only way I can regain control of IE7 or my desktop is to use task manager to end the session of IE7. I also have IE7Pro 2.0 installed.

    I think I have enough ram (2 gigs), so it must me a software incompatibility or something that needs to be updated.

    Has anybody else run into this or have any ideas on what I should do to fix it?

    Thanks,

    --Jim

    Most IE7 problems are because of addons. Try disabling IE7Pro and any other addons. To run IE with addons disabled, WIN+R (bring up run dialog) then "iexplore.exe -extoff" (without the quotation marks).
