I'm working with IE7 in Vista Home Premium. Recently IE started to freeze up after an hour or so of connectivity. When this happens the Control Panel also will not open correctly. However I can still browse with Firefox. The problem continues until I log out & back in. Also, I noticed that the quick launch taskbar toolbar does not automatically startup with my computer. Anyways here's my hijackthis log. Hope you can be of help. Thanks, SBW.
