  1. IE7 page freezes after playing embed video that I uploade to my websites.
    I occasionally add a video such as Yahoo video embed code to my websites. Sometimes after playing them in IE 7 the pages freeze and I have to use control alt delete task manager to get out and it closed down IE.

    Anybody out there know anything about why my code copied from Yahoo Videos does this frequently?

    This server is Linux. Here is the latest page that locked up after playing the Obama Girl video:

    This forum won't let me give you the link... so if you ask for it I will try to send it.
    ...or you can search for how can i help them then the Obama family page

    Can we have some additional info on your system specs? Have you scanned for viruses and other malware?

    I have Windows XP Professional Version 2002 Service Pack 3
    Pentium (R) 4 CPU 3.00 GHz
    3.00 GHz, 2.00 GB RAM
    53 GB Free Space on HD
    Spy Doctor running
    Registry Mechanic running
    Spy Sweeper running
    McAfee regular scans and updates

    I get an error that I didn't mention:
    Internet Explorer Script Error Line 53.... blah blah blah
    Object expected
    Searched this and was told to go to Tools ... Internet Options... Adavanced...
    check boxes for Disable Script debugging... display a notification about every script errors etc.
    BUT this was already the case in my Options... so that couldn't be the problem. now I don't know if it's a IE problem or an HTML embed problem the way the correct site where the problem is:

    w w w swedishinternet net
    click on the link to Enskild Brev at the top of page...
    then play the Obama Girls video on the page...
    After completion of video... I try to close the page...
    and the script error occurs frequently...
    Would like to see if it happens to you too
    Thanks for helping...
    ...similar problem with embeds on some of my other sites but it doesn't always happen.

    Hello Albert,
    My ISP won't allow me to view www. sweedishinternet .net. All that comes up is a list of sites. Are all your Windows Updates current?

    Ok Albert,
    sorry long day... My IE7 also locks up getting out of your site, the links also are not active. It must be a coding error
