Dreamweaver freezes when trying to preview a page

I have built some pages in Dreamweaver MX, using a template to format the pages.  The pages do not have much content and I have made some drop-down menus, using the Show Popup Menu option in Behaviours.  The pages were loading fine into the Preview window but for some reason, both the Dreamweaver application and Internet Explorer show "not reponding" in the Task manager.

I am not at all sure what the problem is.  I have tried restarting but end up with the same result.  Any ideas would be gratefully appreciated.

Is this the only page that behaves like that?
Is it long, I mean, can you post it to see if it crashes my MX as well?

Yes, that would be good.  I'll zip up the pages, as they are not long and send them to you.  What is your email address?

Thanks Lesley

Although it would be best if you post the code here so others could try to help you too ;)

might be a bit big to post here that is all - as there is the mm_menu.js code as well.  Does the size of the page matter?  I know it takes a little longer to load but I wouldn't feel it would make the system freeze?

I don't think the size alone will make it crash (I've seen it, but  didn't crash the IE as well). I can't really guess what your problem can be without more input. The idea is to check your code and be able to discard the page's fault.

of course. I have not sent it yet as I have been busy.  I am also not sure on how to submit a zip file

The problem was that I had altered a pop-up menu on one of my pages and it couldn't find the link

Cheers
