Hey, Having problems with IE. Everything was working fine till last night when I installed norton 360. No errors installing it, ran it without any problems. The I tried to go to a few pages. When I typed the url IE freezes. If I type in like hit enter or hit go, it freezes right up and stops responding. If I go to links or favorties, it works fine. So I can connect to the internet, get to certain pages from my link list html page I made for my home page and I can get to my favorite pages. But any time I typ in a url, it freezes. I uninstalled norton360 and still the same thing, went into tools, internetoptions, advance and restored all the defults, I have upgraded from IE6 to IE7 and still the same thing.


The error I get

szAppName : iexplore.exe     szAppVer : 7.0.5730.11     szModName : hungapp
szModVer :     offset : 00000000     

files included in the error report.

This is a very obvious result of installing Norton.

It's the worst kind of bloatware you can put on a computer and you'd be better off not using it. If you're looking for good free AntiVirus software, look no further than Avira's AntiVir or Grisoft's AVG

A free firewall can be obtained from ZoneLabs and probably more places, if you want to look around.

The big corporations are notoriously bad at combining things that shouldn't be combined in one package, Norton and McAfee are a couple of the worst cases.

Try uninstalling Norton again and see if you can get back online. If you can, you know where the problem was lying.

Alternatively, move away from IE and use Firefox and only use IE when you go to the Windows Updates website.
