Another one having problems here - couldn't get on all morning as the thing kept freezing on me. (IE8 I think).

Mine seems to work OK at work, but keeps getting 'Not Responding' at home still.

IE8 at work; IE9 at home. Seemed OK for a bit but today it's back with avengence

Any chance this can be sorted soon? IE8, open a few topics, program locks up, needs task manager to sort it out. Home and several work machines. :evil:

It's really difficult for us to fix unless we can reproduce it. I imagine it's probably a rogue Flash ad somewhere but unless someone catches it in the act we won't be able to get it sorted. Are there any steps you can take to reliably make it happen?

Now getting the occasional new window that gets opened when going into some threads for some crappy ads. Not seeing the locking so far though.

I've reported this to the appropriate channels. In future, a screenshot would be really useful in addition to the link.

ok will try to get that - only has happened about 3 times in the past week so it's pretty unfrequent.
