Internet Explorer 7 Hangs

This is Dell laptop with Windows XP SP2. I am using Internet Explorer 7 since start for browsing purpose. Now from last few days I am facing problems with the same. Whenever I start IE, it loads fine but as soon as I type any web url, it freezes completed. The only way to recover is to kill its process from Task Manager.

While checking Event Viewer I found the following:
?Hanging application iexplore.exe, version 7.0.6000.16473, hang module hungapp, version, hang address 0x00000000

Fault bucket 431401983?

I don?t have any idea what to do. Hope someone of you can help me out.

First of all make sure that you don?t have any malware or virus on your system. Deep scan entire computer with any good updated antivirus. Once done, follow these steps to fix IE:

Click start > Control Panel > Double Click Network and Internet Connections > Double click Internet Options, on the IE Properties window and click on General Tab. Here clear History, Cache, and temporary internet files.
Now disable all add-ons and restart IE. See if it is working fine.

I was struggling with the same problem since months. Searched for help on several sites, even on Microsoft Support but dint got any working solution. Neither noone in these groups were able to help me out. Finally i managed to fix the problem by simply switching to Firefox Browser. I've had enough.
