IE freezing up while loading using _IECreate()

Recommended Posts

AvgGamerGuy

Hi gang,

I have a simple script (it's really just so that I can play with and learn the functionality of the IE.au3 stuff)

The script works just as I would expect if I already have an Internet Explorer window open....

The script opens up a new Explorer window and inputs the URL "https://www.google.com" and it loads right up.

The problem is when I don't have an existing Explorer window open BEFORE I run the script, the script seems to call Internet Explorer and try to open it but then it locks up or hangs and will never go to URL as it does when another Explorer window is already open. It freezes there and the only thing I can do to close the non-responding Explorer window is to CTR+ALT+DEL to bring up the task manager and kill it.

Any ideas?

Thanks!

And version of Windows? A zombie iexplore.exe can cause this sort of symptom... check task manager and insure they are all gone or reboot and see oif the issue persists.

...and did you verify there were no zombie IE processes still running?

When you say "zombie IE processes" are you referring to the processes listed in the windows task manager?

If you are, I don't see any more than one instance of explorer running.

If i run the script with one instance of "iexplore.exe" listed in the task manger prior to running the script it works just fine.

If i run the script with no instances of "iexplore.exe" listed in the task manager, it appears to freeze up when it loads Iexplore.exe

I can't think of a standard reason for this to occur. Could be caused by an IE plugin or toolbar or something else unique you have on your system. It could also be some other odd interaction, so strongly suggest a reboot. You could also try another machine or a new account on your machine. Again, reboot is my #1 suggestion.
