Websites keep crashing

  bellarena 18:26 PM 20 Jan 12

The problem I am having is that websites keep crashing, it has only started to happen over the last few days. I have not installed or removed anything. I have scanned for viruses but there are none. I have restarted the computer but that makes no difference either. I am using windows explorer. Does anyone have any idea what could be causing this? Its driving me mad having to keep refreshing pages, restoring pages, closing pages all because it stops responding.

This won't fix Internet Explorer but try downloading Chrome or Firefox and see if you get the same result. That way you will be able to tell if it is a browser or a connection problem.

Thanks. I'll try that.

Sometimes add -ons cause problems with crashing. Does the behaviour persist if you start IE in No Add-ons mode?

Start | (All) Programs | Accessories | System Tools | Internet Explorer (No add-ons).

If it starts with this disabled you could try re-enabling add-ons individually to see which one may be causing the problems.

It may be necessary to set your Internet Explorer Settings - see this article.

Problem fixed! I installed firefox and haven't had any problems since.

Good news - it more than likely is an IE add on in that case. Have used Firefox for years and much prefer it to most other browsers.
