Tips To Fix Issue of Internet Explorer® Not Responding
If a program of Internet Explorer in Windows 7 is not responding, it means the program is interacting more slowly than usual with Windows, mainly because a problem has occurred in the program. If the trouble is temporary, and if you choose to wait, some programs would start responding again. Depending on the options available, you can also choose to close or restart the program. When you close a program that has stopped reacting, all files or documents that you have opened using that program (not just the one that you are viewing when the problem occurs) would be closed. Some programs might try to save your information depending on the program that you are using. To prevent information loss, save your work regularly.
