V7 must be launched twice...?

    Howdy,

    I run IE V7 with XP.

    If I launch IE, it hangs (every time.)

    If I then launch another instance (while leaving the first
    instance in its hung up state) the second instance always
    launches properly.

    This is a consistent pattern.

    What might be causing it, and what can I do to correct the
    hassle?

    Many thanks,

    Problems can result when add-ons you have installed, such as browser
    toolbars, are damaged or conflict with Internet Explorer.

    Run Internet Explorer 7 in 'No Add-Ons' mode:

    If you have XP: Start > All Programs > Accessories > System Tools >
    Internet Explorer (No Add-Ons)

    Alternatively, you can create a shortcut on your desktop with the
    following target path:

    "C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe" -extoff

    If the problem does not occur in 'No Add-Ons' mode, then it's being
    caused by one of the add-ons that you have installed. We can show you
    how to identify which add-on is causing the problem.

    Hi Leonard,

    Many thanks for the speedy response...

    Based on your diagnostic method, the problem is an Add-On.

    Would I be correct to assume that I should just kill 'em one
    at a time until I find the culprit? Or is there a better
    approach?

    All the best,

    Exactly the opposite. Disable all the Add Ons then Add them back 1 by 1 until you
    find the culprit

    Unfortunately, you have to nuke 'em all and re-enable them one by one
    until you find the bugger. I would start by re-enabling everything from
    Microsoft first and all of those at once. Microsoft add-ons have been
    known to cause trouble, but your problem is more likely to be caused by
    a third-party add-on.

    Use the Manage Add-ons tool to determine which add-on is causing the
    problem:

    1- Control Panel > Internet Options > Programs tab > 'Manage add-ons'
    button > 'Manage Add-ons' window.

    2- In the Show box, select 'Add-ons that have been used by Internet
    Explorer' to display all add-ons that are installed on the computer. For
    each item in this list, select the add-on, and then click Disable under
    Settings. When you have disabled all the items in this list, click OK.

    3- Start Internet Explorer 7. Go to Tools > point to Manage Add-ons >
    click Enable or Disable Add-ons. Now enable a single add-on, then exit
    and restart Internet Explorer 7 to see if it works properly. Repeat
    until you determine which add-on causes the problem to occur.

    Once you've located the troublemaking add-on(s) ask the vendor's
    technical support for help.

    Hi again,

    Leonard had suggested to me that as a test, I launch IE
    (from Accessories) with no add-ons running.

    I did that, and it launched properly for the first time in
    many days.

    Then, to my surprise, I found that at this point I do not
    have to test further because since that time I have launched
    it successfully many times with no problem.

    Of course the difficulty may start again, but with the help
    you have both provided, I should be able to figure out what
    is causing the problem.

    Many thanks, as before,

    You're going to need those add-ons sooner or later, so you may as well
    find out which one is causing you trouble and get it fixed.

  10. I have been fighting this issue as well and I started with the IE add-on Spybot. I disabled both browser add-ons, rebooted, and launched IE the first time. Problem solved for me. Good luck and thanks to everyone.

    The scrambled-egghead discussion you are replying to has not been active for four months.

    Your problem is not "solved", you have merely completed the _first_ _step_ in
    /identifying/ the problem. You now know that the problem is caused by an add-on.
    The next steps involve selectively re-enabling add-ons to find the one(s) that cause
    the problem to occur. Hint: toolbars are a common culprit.
