Locked

Freezing until downloading complete

By cherrypie769 ·
Hi,

A few months ago I formatted and since then my computer freezes until webpages have finished downloading. I can't do anything until the page has finished downloading. It is really really annoying.

It only happens when I'm on the net.
I hope someone has the answer for me.

Thanks
:-))

We need a little more information to help you out.

Which version of Windows, and which web browser and version?

If it is Windows 98 with IE 6, that could be the problem.
I have seen many W98 systems lock-up with IE 6 installed.

I have a similar problem and have found a workaround.
I've added Google to my favorites. Each time I want to go to a website, I invoke Google from favorites (since its cached - loads in a jiffy), key in the URL or search (as the case maybe) and this works for me :)
Cheers,
Hashim

Your IE is hogging the cpu, that's the reason for the hang. Try upgrading to a newer IE or install netscape and see if that doesn't help. Reinstalling IE sometimes helps.

It's a good idea to have at least two internet browsers anyway because some sites are geared toward IE or Netscape.
