IE on my system often hangs when I attempt to open a file that I saved to my hard drive. It seems that it always happens if I save a page that contains a shockwave file. The page opens fine if I navigate from the internet, but if I attempt to open the file from my hard drive then the page hangs for ~25 seconds. After that everything works fine.

To reproduce the issue navigate to www.yahoo.com. Next, follow one of the links under "In the News". After the news page opens, save the file by clicking on the File - Save As... menu item and then under "Save as type" select "Web page, HTML only". Then click the Save button to save the file. Finally, open the saved file by clicking on the File - Open... menu item. On my system the text will appear immediately, but then IE will hang for a while, after which the advertisement will appear.

Any ideas?

Thanks a lot for any help!
