Hello all

Hope you can help me with a problem that has been driving me nuts for the past few days.

I have HP 2.8Ghz 1.5Gb RAM running XP SP2 on an active directory network

Recently I have noticed that opening up new explorer or internet explorer windows would result in a delay for about 30 seconds until the window appeared. During this freeze other open windows would lock up as well if I clicked on a link or directory.

The machine is fully patched. I have done a full virus and spyware sweep and dug up nothing. Whilst the machine is frozen there are no CPU spikes in task manager or anything out of the ordinary. No new software has been installed. Firefox does not exhibit this behaviour

I have tried rebooting in safe mode with networking and the symptoms still occur, however safe mode by itself works fine. This leads me to believe my computer is waiting on a network task or signal of some sort.

I have tried sfc /scannow but the problem persists. I would like to avoid a clean install

Please help!

IE locks up when the home page is set to blank. (usually it is google which is not particuallarly demanding) Opening up any folder in a new window will seize up as well

Error message from event viewer is:

Event ID 1002
Hanging application iexplore.exe, version 6.0.2900.2180, hang module hungapp, version, hang address 0x00000000.



Any further with your problem ?

I've been sooo busy sorry. Have to say looking like a rebuild might be on the cards for you.

But first whats your network setup? are you using a proxy server ?


i am having the same problem. I am useing a Server 2003 Domain and windows xp sp2 machines which are authenticated against the domain. Also we are using autodesk and vairous applications that when you save or browse the network it freezes. same symptoms as above. however it is doing it on multiple computers.but for like 10 seconds please email me at russellstrei@gmail.com
