IE7 Internet Explorer hangs on opening New Tab or Browser

I have seen many of the people searching for IE7 Internet Explorer 7.0 hangs while opening a new page or new tab or new browser.

Some of the symptoms are :
When I have a few IE7 windows open, I am often getting one browser page that will hang, lock up, not respond at all when I "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab" - it doesn't discriminate as I can have 2 or up to 10 tabs/browsers open on any of thousands of websites I visit.

It can happen at any time. I can have 2 or more tab browsers open or 2 or more separate browsers open and at any time when I "Open in New Window" or "Open in New Tab" - no particular number at all. Then the hang occurs.

I therefore am stuck with a hang that can cause all of the open IE windows/browsers to crash or I manage to close the window if I am quick enough before all IE windows crash at once. Many times I cannot close the hanging browser and can only work with the current browsers that are open only.

Once this happens I also lose the RIGHT CLICK function on the mouse

Therfore, I have learnt that it is a good idea to then close down all IE browsers altogether and start fresh

Once I do this I regain the RIGHT CLICK function on the mouse again and the browsers work as normal till the next hang

It has been noticed that this problem occurs after KB943729 was installed.
To fix it we should disable "Windows Live" plug-ins (Tools->Internet Options->Programs(Tab)->Manage Add Ons).

Once you disable this addon. It should look like below:

Know Whats Best Among Upcoming E-Readers

Amazon Kindles

Amazon announced three new e-ink Kindle models for fall 2011, including new touch-screen models. All are affordably priced from $79 to $189. The company has also generated huge buzz with the debut of its new colour 7-inch tablet, the $199 Kindle Fire. However, most of these new products won’t be out until mid-to-late November.

Verdict: Worth waiting for, especially considering the mystery surrounding the Kindle Fire.

Apple iPad

At $499, the iPad is two to six times more expensive than the e-reader products listed above — but as a full-fledged multimedia tablet that competes with some laptops, it’s really a different class of product. Nevertheless, iOS 5 has brought even more reading options, most notable of which is the new Newsstand app — basically an app store for magazines and newspapers.

Verdict: An excellent tablet is only getting better, but the iPad’s comparatively large price and size will give bargain hunters pause as cheaper competition looms.

Rumored Barnes & Noble Nook Color

The original Nook Color was launched in October 2010, so it wouldn’t be at all surprising to see a new model hit now (about a year later). Many think B&N’s Nook Color and $139 Nook Touch were the best readers in their respective price classes for months — with an emphasis on the “were”, so it’s obvious they need to get their act together now.

Verdict: Not much. B&N isn’t that big on coming to this side of the world.

Sony Reader
Sony, a pioneer in the e-reader space, is releasing its 2011 Sony Reader Wi-Fi PRS-T1 in October for $149, and offers a touch-compatible e-ink screen, Wi-Fi, audio playback capability, and support for reading library books — but the forthcoming Kindle Touch matches all of those features for $50 less.

Verdict: Skip it. Too expensive.

Wait. The next four to five months will completely overturn the e-book and tablet product categories in India. The new and updated products listed above offer the potential for more choices and better values than we’ve ever seen.

We strongly recommend that you hold off on any buying decisions unless you’re absolutely desperate.
