I'm having a problem with internet explorer freezing up when searching and clicking through to the site. After a few searches when I click on a search result, ie freezes and won't open the site that I clicked on.

I've already take the following steps:

(1) Ran malware detection tools including ms malware removal, spybot, adware, malewarebytes and Hijackthis.
(2) Deleted all cookies, history, add-ons and toolbars.
(3) Cleaned the XP cache.
(4) Cleaned the Registry
(5) Uninstalled ie8 and ie7. Then reinstalled

Any ideas?
