New windows freezing browser... 22:50 18 Dec 06

This problem only started this morning and I did a crap clean last night, so I assume something got deleted that shouldn't have.

If I click a link on a page that opens in a new window, the window opens blank, and the browser freezes. I have to 'end task'.

It's ok if I use the mouse wheel to open the link in a new tab, but not a left click into a new window.

Any ideas?

Hi, assuming you are using XP you could try a System Restore back to before you did the clean.

will make that the final option as despite what it says about leaving your files intact, it doesn't in some cases.

Hi ,Go Back into C Cleaner, Make sure it is not deleting all your Cookies,If so save them in the other box, 23:10 18 Dec 06

deleting a cookie would cause the problem. Never happened before.

OK - but I have never ever had that happen when I have done Restores. 23:15 18 Dec 06

all the time when I was using ME. Maybe XP is a bit more reliable. Will give it a try later unless anything else is suggested.

I'm a bit reluctant because I downloaded 1.5 gigs of backup files from cyberspace this morning and I don't really want to have to do it again. 12:07 19 Dec 06

go into a big technical spiel about how I cured it, but it stopped happening after a restart!

Grrreat, all's well that ends well. Cheers.

Don't forget the Green tick!

Oooops, sorry just noticed you had ticked!

Merry Christmas
