System Hang On Browser Execution


Recommended Posts

A Few Days Ago I Had Installed Windows 7.....Worked Fine No Problem.....Yesterday However I Opened My Browser And Noticed Everything Except The The Browser Window Hung.....Thinking That Somehow Some Really Intelligent Malware Got Into My Comp, I Formatted And Clean Installed Windows 7. Hoping No Problems I Ran Internet Explorer.....The Taskbar Froze The Millisecond The Browser Opened.....So Did All Background Windows And Activity But I Could Browse The Internet Without Any problems At All.....Im Very Strict When It Comes To What I Download And I Always Keep My Computer Malware Free.....(ESET NOD32 Antivirus[updated] +Windows Firewall [Outbound Protection Configured] Malware Cannot Escape A Format So What Is causing Trouble?

A Summary Of Problem!

1: Tried Every Browser (Chrome/Firefox/Opera/IE8]

2: Taskbar/Background Windows Freeze The Millisecond The Browser Windows Opens.

3: Although Everything Freezes The Opened Browser Works Absolutely perfectly.....Does Everything Normally.

4: As Soon As I Minimize The Browser It Hangs Too.

5: Only Keyboard Response Is Alt+Ctrl+Delete Which takes Me To The Blue Page.....You Know....(Switch User, Task Manager, Lock)

6: All The Above Functions Are Useless Except LOG OFF.....Once Log Off And Log On Everything Works Perfectly.....As Long As I Dont Open Any Browser.

7: However If I Run A Browser And Everything Hangs(Except Browser) And I Close The Browser.....Everything Is Normal Again!

8: Sometimes If I Ignore The Background Hang And Continue Browsing.....After Some Time Everything Returns To Normal.....Sometimes.

I just replaced one of my SATA drives (currently using RAID 1) due to a faulty one. Lately, I've been having close to the same issue as alrichdesa. If I have my browser open, but only on certain sites it seems, my system freezes also. Seems like it *might* have to do with my new replacement, but another scenario may be that I restored my system from server backup (of which is the copy that suffered crashes from my previous HDD - I'm sure OS files were affected).

I'm looking to do a clean install very very soon and see if it behaves the same. This issue is intermittent for me though so I cannot reproduce it exactly.....and now only recently EVERYTHING FREEZES.

I am using the RTM, but I'm also curious as to alrichdesa's xml if using one as this is a first for me (been using W7 for many months already, RTM as soon as it was released).

My first hunch is a corrupt image as far is alrich is concerned. Second may lie in unattend (if used).
