IE 9 freezing on TR

PurpleSkys Moderator
Two different computers both windows 7 pro 64 bit quad core 2.3 Ghz 8 gig ram. Works fine on my BB PLAYBOOK arrrgggg help!
Edit to add ; it's just TR that it's happening on.

I'm thinking that there's something running or loading on TR that neither one of my computers likes .

    on my Compaq notebook with IE9, but it is only Win7 Ultimate 32 bit, 2 gig RAM...
    Are your's running the 64 bit IE9 or 32? It is possible there is an ad or something
    trying to load, sometimes I get one that floats over the page.
    No problems here at work on WinXP SP3 and IE8 either...YET!

    Make sure your Adobe Flash and ShockWave add-in's are current. I ran into a similar problem pre v11.4.402 although my problem wasn't that MSIE v9.0 was locking up but instead the pages were intermittentaly not being displayed correctly. I was seeing this problem on other sites that had a lot of Flash and ShockWave content.

    HTH.

    Adobe flash, shockwave, java all up to date and current. Remember, this is happening on my pc as well as Darryl's...both with the same specs.

    Hmm...do you have the 32 bit version installed? Might try that if you do,
    a few brave souls have installed both 32 and 64 bit versions!
    Also, with Adobe's shenanigans of late, might make sure they sent
    the correct plugin down the pipeline...they're so darn sneaky with
    that Chrome and Google Toolbar junk being ticked by default, they
    may have goofed everything else up.

    thanks wiz :) ....haven't got both versions installed...made sure of that way back when we first installed win7. No toolbars either...after running mwb, spybot, and ccleaner (not in that order and in safe mode) and doing about three or four reboots, it seems to be running OK atm. Cross your fingers for me will ya

    TR Freezes for any Moderator silly enough to use IE anything. It's the Delete Button causing the problem. Honest

    Actually there has to be something else involved here as I'm currently using IE9 on 7 64 Pro with 16 GIG of System RAM and a i7 without problems though at the moment I'm not logged in with my Moderator Account. There are currently no issues, though when I log in with the Hal Account I'll come back here if there are any problems.

    I've just rebooted with yesterdays Updates and it still seems to be running OK if that's any help. Sorry but this system isn't often running 7 I'm mostly using it with XP.

    And this is a desktop with a 2 GIG ATI Video Card if thats any help.

    Techrepublic cannot display that page messages when clicking on TOC items on the site for about three weeks. It is intermittent so I just put up with it. (IE9 Win7x64 i5) Not certain if that is part of the problem, but thought I'd mention it!

    Charles I've been getting that all morning with IE8 on XP so I think it's a fairly common thing happening.

    When I know that a page is defiantly there I just walk away for a few minutes and come back and things seem to work. Not sure what's happening but it may be passing the problem to another.
