I can understand how frustrating it is. Im trying to figure out if its a firewall/av prob or a connectivity prob. with ppoe im leaning towards that. did you have a previous OS? and did you have this problem then?

Thanks for trying to help.

It's the same deal when I turn of the firewall, and like I said I'm not using any AV right now.

I did have a similar problem when I went from XP to Vista, however I solved that problem with getting a new WLAN PCI card. The problem was bigger then however since I wasn't able to do anything at all cause as soon as I connected to the internet my pc would freeze. Now however I can do everything but surf and the freezing sometimes happens right away and sometimes takes minutes. Some particular sites however seem to speed up the waiting time

I could understand the problem then as I couldn't get online at all, but I don't understand it now as I can do everything but browse websites, kind of doesn't make sense.

Had similar problems with Explorer hanging up. Found that it was caused by an Explorer addon, so suggest you look at the addons, and remove all of them and run for awhile. If it is one of them causing the problem easy enough to enable them one at a time until you find out which one is causing the problem

I repeat: ANY BROWSER will freeze my pc, not just internet explorer, doesn't matter which one I use.

At some point it might just be easier to re-install. did this happen on a previous OS?

I already told you about what happened with Vista.

And no, I won't re-install cause that won't solve anything since I installed Win 7 RTM on a clean and formated disk and the problem started right away. I'll either solve it or go back to Vista (Which I really hope I won't have to do).

Finally, after hours of going through the logs and identifying the errors and what's causing them I found one thing that might be the troublemaker, I erased it and VOILA, no freezes anymore, at least not up till now. The program that caused the trouble was non other than NERO BURNING ROM. That said, does anyone know some other good burning software?

If another freeze happens I'll be sure to post again, hope this is the end of my problems.
