    Hi

    I have just upgraded my outlook to 2007. But before this I have notices that
    IE8 freezes on occassions. It wont shut down some times and I have to use
    CTrl Alt Del.

    Since upgrading outlook to 2007, it will not allow me to send a page by link
    or send a page.

    Any surgestions?

    Every software application "freezes on occasion". If you can describe a
    specific situation when IE 8 freezes consistently, we can try to help.
    Otherwise, it's anyone's guess.

    Always state your full Windows version (e.g., WinXP SP3; WinXP 64-bit SP2;
    Vista SP1; Vista 64-bit SP2; Win7; Win7 64-bit) as well as your IE version
    when posting in an IE-specific forum or newsgroup. Please do so in your next
    reply.

    What anti-virus application or security suite is installed and is your
    subscription current? What anti-spyware applications (other than Defender)?
    What third-party firewall (if any)?

    Has a(nother) Norton or McAfee application ever been installed on this
    machine (e.g., a free-trial version that came preinstalled when you bought
    it)?

    Are you running Internet Explorer 8?
    If so and you find IE is Freezing or Crashing frequently, here are some
    trouble-shooting steps you may try:

    1. Run your anti-virus and an anti-spyware, to check for malware
    infections. Microsoft Security Essentials is a good freeware AV from
    Microsoft.
    2. Clear Cache. Or else run your Junk Cleaner or CCleaner. In IE 7 or
    8, click Tools > Internet options > Security > Reset all Zones to
    Default level
    3. If still you find your IE giving problems, close it and run IE (No
    Add-ons). This opens up the browser without loading any add-ons,
    toolbars or plug-ins.
    4. Run sfc /sc¬annow and at the end reboot if asked for. This will
    replace corrupted system files if any.
    If you find it running OK, then the problem is most probably caused by
    an addon. In that case you have two options :
    - Use the manage Add-ons tool, and disable each one after the other to
    find out which one is causing the problem.
    - In Internet Options, go to Advanced Tab and click on Reset tab.
    Restart IE. This step deletes all temp files, disables any add-ons,
    plug-ins, toolbars and also resets all changed settings to default.
    Although this is a quick-fix, you will have to re-install the add-ons.

    I hope this helps!

    Cheers,
