We encountered several cases where AutoCAD freezes or opens multiple times (one time for every drawing).
The solution of AutoDESK is the change a setting in Internet Explorer which lowers! the security level in Internet Explorer. By switching the option "Publisher's Certificate Revocation option" off, visiting SSL websites with redrawn certificates will no longer warn you.
That raises the risk on surfing the internet while phising sites are more and more common place using false, older or stolen certificates.
Personaly i consider this as a serious problem.
Please AutoDESK correct this problem asap as your solution can only be noted as temporaly.

In some cases, AutoCAD 2005, AutoCAD 2006 and AutoCAD 2007 or verticals on isolated networks freeze when they are launched. This issue usually occurs after the AutoCAD screen has been painted, but before any tool palettes are displayed.
To correct this issue, you will need to edit your Internet Options.
