IE or Other App Appears To Lockup Then Release

I have been suffering through a weird phenomenon lately. Whenever I go to IE
the first time of any boot or reboot, it "hangs" after filling up the status
bar for several minutes, then releases and all is well. (NOTE: I don't think
this is IE-specific. It has happened booting apps, but I notice it most with
IE as I use it extensively.) When things seem to lock up, EVERYTHING is
locked up. I can't even bring up Task Manager, none of the icons in the Task
Bar are active, etc. Sometimes I can Tab through other apps that are open,
sometimes not, but when I can, the app is "frozen" until whatever is going on
finishes. During this time, I can watch the process light (I have a Dell D600
laptop) going nuts.

Before and after this event, I have run the system through the latest
updates of utilities such as Ad-Aware Plus, Ad-Watch, PestPatrol, Symantec
Antivirus, Ace Utilities, RegSeeker, etc., and none of them sends up a flag
that anything is wrong.

My machine is always up-to-date via Windows Update feature, so I don't know
what is causing this. I had the bright idea to reinstall XP SP2, but can't.
Every time I try, it quits, giving me nothing more than a smal window with a
red X in it and the notification that the install has been cancelled. I
ordered the free XPSP2 CD just to see if that would make any difference, but
I get the same error. I suspect I could attempt a slipstream install, but I
don't want to go through all that if anyone out there recognizes this problem
and knows what the solution is outside of doing a slipstream reinstall of
SP2.

Finally, I have several times done System Restores going back as far as I
can, but while they have been successful (although I usually have to do the
restore in Safe Mode as they will often fail otherwise), it has made no
difference related to this problem.

I do install and uninstall a lot of software on my machine, but I am very
careful to ensure it is cleaned up afterwards, even if the uninstall goes
smoothly (e.g, I do a registry clean and all that).

Any ideas?

Since you write that you have scanned adware/malware and antivirus software, then write
that you install and uninstall much software, my first thought would be that perhaps
something that you installed and or/uninstalled more than you bargained for. Have you run
MSCONFIG, and looked at the Startup tab to see if there might be items that are loading on
Startup that could be causing the problem? Also, even though you have run some
adware/malware utilities, not all pick up everything. There could be items that those
utilities missed. Have you tried HiJackThis?

T,
Checked msconfig ... nothing there that is out of the ordinary. Have not
tried Hijack This yet, though. Will give it a shot. Thanks.

The good folks at CastleCops have responded that they see nothing
troublesome in my Hijackthis! log. So the beat goes on. One brief update to
the above: I now realize this pseudo-lockup is not limited to IE. It can
happen any time. 2-3 minutes later, whatever is going on is released, and
everything works fine. It never repeats itself until the next (re)boot.

You can do a memory test, to see if something is going on there.

Is it possible that your display adapter drivers are were updated at the Windows Update
site, or that they have become corrupt? Have you tried downloading and installing the
latest Windows XP compatible drivers for your display adapter from the makers web site
(NOT THE WINDOWS UPDATE SITE)? Also, some Mouse drivers can cause similar problems. If
you have anything other than a generic PC mouse, you might want to update the drivers.
Also, if you are using Microsoft Office, is Speech Recognition enabled? If so, turn it
off. It is also possible that if you were infected with something that was removed, the
damage done might not have been repaired, or the infection might not have been totally
cleaned up.

I'm not sure what your point is, but I was doing what I felt was suggested in
an earlier part of the thread. If my now coming back now to report on the
findings somehow offends you, I apologize and respectfully suggest you bow
out of the thread.

I bowed out when you posted your log somewhere else. I was attempting to
help you with your issue, which you properly posted and asked for help. I
was at the time the only one who at least made an attempt. It was you who
was convinced by others, who offered no help to you at all, to post your log
elsewhere, in a sense, shooing you away. Do you see now how wrong that was.
You still have the same problem. I don't blame you for anything, you did
what you felt was right. Just remember next time, don't ignore people who
are trying to help you because others don't like that person.

Good Luck with your issue.
