    I'm trying to view: http://www.google.com/finance?q=INDEXDJX:.DJI (click
    refresh once there)

    Initially I was using Vista SP2 with IE7 but the above page kept freezing.

    I ran Microsoft OneCare Safety Scanner and it didn't find any malware or
    virus.

    Then I upgraded to IE8 and it kept freezing. I tried Reset IE settings but
    no effect.

    Is it freezing for you or is it just me? Is there a workaround besides
    Firefox ;)

    Same here with IE7 on Windows XP SP3 with all latest updates: CPU usage
    goes to 100%. Firefox is okay.

    No. I did see that the page has a pile of errors, but then a lot of
    pages do without crashing. I also noticed that, after the page was
    displayed, the page was waiting for something, and that the something
    appeared to be different for FF and IE.

    Best to complain to Google.

  6. The same problem on the same site? The cause for that was explained by C A
    Upsdell less than an hour ago. If for a different site, give a URL so someone
    can check it. If you submit the URL to http://validator.w3.org/ you will
    probably find the site is poorly written.

    HTML Validator result for http://www.google.com/finance?q=INDEXDJX:.DJI: 124
    errors / 13 warnings

    If a page tries to load something that isn't there, a freeze is likely.

  7. Hello,

    Hangs IE7 and IE8 here at 100% CPU usage.

    No crash in IE8 with no add-ons mode.

    Disabled Flash Add-on and no problem. Problem seems to be with Flash content
    at that page.

    Then I tried again after some time and it works without any problem. So the
    problem must be fixed
