Hey all,

After having it just happen AGAIN I decided to finally post this question, I am sick and tired of it. In case some of you haven't noticed, the internet is getting more and more clogged with pop-up advertisements (if you are sitting there going "Oh really?...I didn't know" you might want to close this window already) and the most annoying thing is that from time to time, on a fairly regular basis even, those annoying windows lock up Microsoft Internet Explorer to the point where I have to CTRL-ALT-DEL and close the program from there. Is there anyone out there that has the same problem?. What is causing it?. IE or the ads? And the most important question...how..do...I...get..RID OF IT!!!

As you can see, I am slightly annoyed...thanks to any prospective helpers

As far as locking up goes - it depends on how well patched your OS and browser is - as well as how often you clean up your machine (via empty temp files, temporary internet history, temp internet files, scandisk, defrag, SFC.
If you have bad system files or bad application files - or wrong version dll files - or even a combination of these -
you could easily set yourself up for frequent browser crashes. Being that IE is so integrated into the OS - repairing IE on a regular basis and updating it is imperative to browser health.  
Here is another add killer application (Web Accelerator) and it is free:

Also, if you have 98SE, you should have a Windows Update right on the Start Menu.  Use this frequently.  If you don't, here is the URL:

http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com

You don't send any info to MS (at least that's what they say) and you should do critical updates at least.  The other options are at your discretion.

Good luck.

see what sort of resources your system is running by right clicking my computer > properties >> perfomance tab
if you are under 60 odd % on a clean boot, then you open explorer and explorer spawns more windows... system becomes very unstable... could be causing your locking
