If you did an upgrade that's probably the problem. if you did a clean install then maybe something went wrong. But its not a common problem so maybe just reinstall

ok it was a Bug in 7100

the freezing bug i have talked about before where any other browser other than IE would freeze with the hold of right click at the very top of the window
think it was fixed in later builds?
because i have done a reinstall and a repair install but to no avail
