3. Install the latest updates.
4. Reset Internet Explorer Settings

Automatically open the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box click here and run wizard.

Manually open the Reset Internet Explorer Settings dialog box

What antivirus are you running on all three? Are all three as up to date as possible?
What has av scan shown you on all 3 machines?  Do you have Malwarebytes from malwarebytes.org installed on machines? If not, get the free version, install, update and do  thorough scan and come back with results.
Did you look at the addons in ie and disable any of them? You should.  Have you checked your hard drives for errors? Many possibilities when it comes to freezing programs but virus and malware are top of list for IE and then av program blocking ie is second and then hardware (damaged disk or faulty memory)
