Windows 7: 7 freezes while browsing Internet

7 freezes while browsing Internet

Hi guys, I'm using 32-bit Windows 7. Everything seems to work fine until I browse the Internet. I've got both IE and Firefox installed and system freezes at some point of browsing through the web pages. Thought it could be something to do with my GPU so I updated to latest drivers but it didn't solve the problem. Any ideas? It's really annoying and I would like to continue using Win 7 for some time.

Thanks in advance.

Try downloading the latest network drivers for you adapter.

That's the first thing I did after installing Win 7, my network adapter is abit AirPace Wi-Fi Wireless, driver version 5.1.1.10 which appears to be the latest one. Any other suggestions? It's definitely the case with web browsers; I can use the system without it freezing but when using a browser for a certain amount of time, Windows freezes and i need to reboot. Also, it's fine when the browser is minimised!

I'm getting the exact same issue.

System hangs completely when browsing the net, using either IE or Firefox, with any AV installed. Other than that, Windows 7 has been stable.

Interestingly my hardware specs are very similar :

Intel(R) Core(TM) 2 CPU 6600 @ 2.40GHz (2 CPUs)
2GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 7900 GTX
Realtek HD Audio
mobo Abit AB9 Pro
I'm not using a wireless network, though, but a wired one using the motherboard connections. It's not a generic network issue, as I have played online gaming for many hours under Windows 7 without issue.

I updated my GPU drivers and it seems to freeze a lot less now. In last few days it only froze 2 times. So if you have Nvidia graphics card, go on their website and download latest drivers (for Windows Vista).

I'm running Nvidia Driver 7.15.11.7923 (20/11/2008) obtained by clicking Update Driver in Device Manager.

Not really certain that I want to install Vista drivers on Windows 7 when Nvidia are recommending not to.

I have same freezing problem in my win 7... This Safe mode works fine and normal mode without browsing net :/

I have also Abit ab9 pro, 6600 core 2 duo, 8600 GTS...so the problem could be somewhere in the mobo lan drivers... I tried to update them but it freezes still
I have nvidia newest drivers for win 7. probably I'll try other drivers :/

Also getting trust/broadcom usb bluetooth working have been quite hard :/

The general consensus is that the Vista display drivers work better with Windows 7.

I have found this to be true. So you guys might want to try some of the new Vista display drivers. I'am using the eithernet drivers that came with Windows 7.

I have a similar system running a dual core but no freeze ups ever using 7077. Using 180.48 display drivers. It might also help if you get the latest Adobe flash player.
