    In 8-10 hrs of my days work my IE7 is open 90% of the time and when using
    multiple tabs, its hanging quite frequently. "Not Responding" is what it
    shows and hangs atleast 10 times a day not just when 5-6 tabs are open but
    even when 2-3 tabs are open. I've to start the browser afresh and search for
    the links i've opened in the history everytime it hangs, which is irritating
    .. The tabbed browsing seems to be quite unstable and switching between tabs
    is tooo slow unlike MOZILLA FIREFOX which undoubtedly has none of these
    problems. I never needed to stop my mozilla browser byforce form the Task
    Manager.

  4. => Does the behavior persist if you start IE7 in No Add-ons mode? To start
    IE7 in No Add-ons mode:

    1. Right-click on the blue IE desktop icon and select Start without Add-ons;
    or

    2. Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet Explorer
    (No add-ons).

    I am having exactly the same problem and have been for about a week even with
    only 1 tab open, works fine for about 10 mins then it just locks up and
    hangs, doesn't even time out.

    Using Xp Professional on SP3 used to work fine and now doesn't. tried
    installing IE8 beta but same problem.

    Any one else having this? any ideas.
