IE* is often caused by buggy video drivers.  Check the site for your
video board manufacturer.  Meanwhile you can do the following:
1.  Use the default mouse pointers.
2.  Turn down your color depth.  (Right click the desktop and choose
Properties | Appearance | Settings)  Some people find that increasing color
depth helps.
3.  Turn down your graphics hardware acceleration.  (Start | Settings |
Control Panel | System | Performance | Graphics button)  You will see
little, if any, performance degradation.
4.  Turn off your desktop wallpaper.

If these make the problem go away you need new video drivers.

I've been having same problem, is it when popup ads come
up or multiple windows.  A guy emailed me I got adaware
and cleaned off all the spyware, more specifically gator,
and have not had the problem since I've been on ie for
about 30 minutes now without any problems try it.  I
could not get ride of gator without the adaware program
it was write protected.

I have a problem with ie6 freezing for 10 - 30 seconds.
I click a link and get there fast, the whole page is
loaded and then it freezes, sometimes just that window,
sometimes the system. This lasts for anywhere between 10-
30 seconds.
