My solution of Google drive hang up at "One moment please"

Today I installed Google drive to my Windows 7 environment to share files with my Linux machines. After sign in, the application window said "processing," then it hanged up. There was a button "you must enable javascript". I pushed it, then "One moment please..." after 5 minutes, I exited the program tried it again. It seems some security setting causes this problem.

My solution: set https://accounts.google.com as a trusted site.
Procedure:

  • Open the control panel
  • Go to network and control
  • Go to Internet Options
  • Open Security Tab
  • Click Trusted sites
  • Click the "site" button
  • copy & paste https://accounts.google.com to "Add this website to the zone" and click Add button
Now it worked for me. But if I removed this site, it still works. That puzzled me a bit...

I think this Google Groups thread has the most exhaustive list of solutions:

If, like me, you've tried everything else and still not progressing past the "One moment please" screen?
This solved it for me:

Basically, it turns out that some virus scanners can break VBScript on uninstall. It appears that Google Drive uses some VBScript. Running the removal tool for these virus scanners solved the problem for me. More details in above post.
