Windows 7: windows explorer "fade to white"

windows explorer "fade to white"

Not sure if this is the right place to post this. Recently when I am in internet explorer and go into a site the page semi freezes. In other words it just sits there not totally opening up with all the data on a page. If I click to go out then the page fades to an off white with the data still readable. I can then go out and come back in and often all is well. But this happens quite a bit. Any idea what is going on. Running Windows Explorer 8.0.760 with windows 7
thanks in advacne

When that happens, hit Ctrl + Shift + Esc, go to the Processes tab, select "Show processes from all users" checkbox on the bottom, and click the CPU header column to arrange in descending order of what processes are taking up the most CPU percentage. This should tell you what's going bonkers at that point when iexplorer is freezing up. It could be a number of things, but you should check that first to make sure it's actually IE causing the issue or whether it's something else (an add-on or third party program integrated into ie).

Try Method 3 below:

How to optimize Internet Explorer

You might have some add-on's that are causing it to freeze up.

This may help.

In IE-Tools-Internet Options-Advanced tab, uncheck the box "Enable memory protection to mitigate online attacks" under "Security". Also, under "Browsing", uncheck "Disable Script debugging (IE)" and "Disable script debugging (others)".

Another question that should be asked is whether it's a particular site or sites, or if it is just random.

seems random. Like i mentioned in my last post this problem is seen on our lap top as well. I never saw anything like this with earlier versions of windows or IE

My first attempt would be to disable all the add-on's and see if one of them is causing this slow down. What antivirus do you use?
