Internet Explorer Problems

Discussion in 'Off Topic [BG]' started by Bassman_Spike, Nov 21, 2003.


  1. Hey

    Ive got Internet Explorer v6.0.26 and here are the problems i keep having

    1) I will be surfing the net and all of a sudden the browser freezes. You cant do anything the hourglass comes up...you can minimize the browser fine and all other programs still work fine, i have to wait like 2 mins and it unfreezes or press close the it comes up with one of those end now boxes.

    2) When im surfing this box comes up in the thing at the top it says web page dialogue. Nothing loads in the box just white and you cant press links or scroll the page untill you close this box. When this happens again i will take a screen shot.

    So does anyone know how to fix any of these problems??

    My Specs:
    Windows XP Home
    AMD 1800+
    256mb Ram
    32mb Video
     
  2. Here is the screen shot

    Clear everything.

    Give it a couple of cold boots.

    If you find you actually need anything Spybot
    took out, just recover the file.

    I've cleared everything with no problems.
