Is this the only pc you have, or do you have his/her pc's? Maybe clearing cache/history/cookies on IE might help. If you have seperate pc's, does IE freeze on yours? Maybe this would be a good time to switch her to Opera. Prolly won't take her long to like it vs. IE

It does sound like IE then. You could run adaware and spybot to see if that would help. There is a lot of crap out there that can 'break' IE.

well, i agree, sounds like its time to "convert" her to opera, lol. might be hard though, my mom refuses to use it or admit that its better. i just broke IE on my computer now whenever someone wants to use it, they slowly begin to like it. my evil plan to convert everyone to opera is working! YES! MWUAHAAAHAA :D

It does surprise me that IE would have trouble with hotmail though... lol. You might want to try running more than just one anti-spyware program (like do spybot and ad-aware also- both free) sice some catch things other don't and visa versa.

But switching to Opera with her is a great idea none the less (maybe even firebird for the both of you, its much better IMO).
