Background freezes

Hello! At least once a day, my background freezes when I open my Internet Explorer browser. What happens is, I open IE and get the browser with a white window and no actions and I can't close it. If I open any other windows, I can still function, but if I minimize the window, the image of it is still on the screen. I usually end up rebooting to get rid of it and when I do, you can see the IE window release whatever is holding it up and the page appears. I am using Windows 2000 Professional SP 2 and IE 5.5 SP2. Any ideas on what I can do to resolve this?

TIA,
especht

First, I would make sure the you look into the properties of IE and uncheck the box that says JIT Compiler and see if this helps. It is located on the Advanced tab. You could also click on the restore defaults button and see if this works also.

mikecr,

I tried your suggestions (restored defaults and disabled JIT Compiler) and I am still experiencing the problem. Any additional ideas or suggestions?

Thanks!
