I have onwed this Acer 5672WLMI for almost a year now and have been having this problem on and off ever since. When using the Internet browser (currently using IE 7 but happens with Firefox as well) on occasions the computer "freezes" for lack of a better term. While the whole computer doesn't freeze, it won't allow me to open new Internet windows nor will it allow me to open directories (such as a my My Documents fold) until I reboot. While I am currently using Vista Ultimate, I had this problem when I was using XP as well. So, to re-explain the condition, I will have a couple of browser windows open and all is working just fine but eventually, when I click on a hyperlink, it won't open a new browser window, nor will it open a directory window until rebooting. Anyone have any ideas as to potential fixes?
