I have two other computers in my house and both load this page without a problem. The computer that's having the problem is the brand new Inspiron laptop. The main difference between the boxes is that the laptop is running McAfee and the other two are running Norton.
One other note: I installed Opera on the laptop and it has no problem with this page. Only IE has a problem. I left it sitting for over an hour and the only way to get it back is to power it off.

New information: This laptop is new and up until now I had only connected via wireless. I decided to try the wired connection and sure enough, the website that was causing me problems loads just fine. The exact configuration that causes the lock-up is using the wireless connection (802.11g) and Internet Explorer 6. Using Opera with the wireless connection or IE with a wired connection, everything works fine. I have the latest drivers for the wireless card. Very weird....
It works just fine on a wireless 5150 running Nortons NIS Pro 2004. So, as your thinking, it must be something with McAfee - not quite sure what though.
Well, I have an extra copy of NAV 2005 I can install. I may give that a try tomorrow. Also, my daughter has a C600 with the same wireless card that I have and she'll be at my house this Wednesday. I'm going to try her laptop with this web page and see what happens. This seems like alot of trouble for one web page but it's gotten under my skin and I just have to solve it now.
I appreciate your help with this and I'll keep posting as I get more info or (hopefully) a solution.
