Hi All,

Lately it's happened that when I going to watch a movie threw IE on my W2K P4 PC, the computer freezes & I must reboot it.

It happened when trying to watch a promo for a show on http://www.nbc.com.
It happened when trying to watch a video clip on http://launch.yahoo.com.
It happened when a pop up advertisment for Honda came up while surfing the site www.about.com.

Did anyone else come across similar behavier?

Besided these cases, I can watch movies on my PC with no problem using Microsoft Media Player.

I think the problem is only with on-line videos.

Thanks.

I would suggest you to run a complete Windows Update and check if that helps.

Also try to run a SFC /SCANNOW and check for corrupted Windows files.

Click Start - Run, type SFC /SCANNOW and press enter. Put the CD in and complete the wizard.

Even if that fails, then IE repiar should be a best solution:

Good Luck!!!

I tried some things now & noticed that it happens sometimes also when playing a movie in MS MP without using IE at all.

So, I'm not sure the problem is connected to IE.

Also, the fact that the same movie sometimes has problems & sometimes doesn't seems odd...

I was hesitating about upgrading to IE 6, after all I heard about it.

Eventualy, I did upgrade & this solved the problem.

Thanks.
