Agreed - i had exactly the same problem and it was norton antivirus. I just uninstalled it in control panel and now everything working perfectly. Something must have corrupted in the install.

I too have the same problem (Browser stops responding after 10 to 15 minutes of running IE starts again after restart but if I ping the yahoo or google sites, it works fine but the browser does not work) and I see many people have gone through this situation. I wonder if anyone can guide me to remove this problem from my computer as well. Thanks.
