Windows 7: I.E. not responding

I.E. not responding

I am running Windows 7 on two machines. Win 7 Pro on my laptop, Win 7 Home premium on my PC.

When browsing on my PC it is forever Locking up with the message "Internet Explorer is not responding" and I have to close the program to continue.

While this has happened on my laptop it is very rare.

I have scanned the PC with both Malware bytes and Eset Home Security with nothing malicious found.

Can anyone suggest what to do to cure it?

try re-setting your router and/or your modem - there's usually a reset button somewhere on the things..

We've been getting intermittent slow response-times from Virginmedia just recently..
that's both via my own direct connection to the router and other household PC's, via wireless signal..

they recommended I re-set both their cable modem and the Netgear router once a month, at least..

- it appears to have solved my recent lag issue..
