    IE8.
    Why is it that some pages will not allow you to go back a page or some pages just freeze and you have to close IE?

    This is hard to answer without referencing particular web sites.

    On the first question, some pages contain a redirect. If you go back to that page, it will again redirect you forward to where you just were. To get past it, use the drop-down next to the back/forward buttons to skip past the redirect page. (I'm looking at IE7, but I assume they haven't removed this drop-down in IE8.)

    Another possible reason for being unable to leave a page is a script that cancels your navigation. Legitimate sites generally don't use such a script.

    sussertown, It could be you have multiple pages open similtaenously ( @ same time ) Check tabs setting from tools menu.

    some webpages expires because of the design of the webpage itself.
