My new laptop desktop freezes after running IE 8 - None of the desktop items are clickable, but can be run OK from taskbar or program menu. Only a reboot unfreezes tha desktop.
Task manager shows 2 or 3 versions of Iexplore.exe running after closing IE. If I terminate one instance, they all go away, and the desktop is now clickable until I run IE again.
I have no viruses - It's a brand-new clean installation, I only added MS Office 2007.
I installed Maxthon browser, and made it my default browser - Problem gone bye-bye!
Thank you Maxthon
