System Freezes, when scrolling in Netsca

By TSQR1951 ·
About 2 months ago, my WIN98SE HP, started freezing up when using Netscape(on AOL)
I thought I had a virus, so I reformatted my HD. At the time, I had called AOL Tech Support around 5 times and they did not know what was wrong.
Now the problem isback again and I still can't figure it out. I thought it might be a virus, but I am VERY careful what I download form E-mail. Now I think there may be a software conflict somewhere. I had a wireless mouse and bought a wired mouse and that did nothelp ether.

Any help in solving this will be very much appreciated.

Jess

Does your computer freeze only when you are using Netscape or also with other programs? If only when you are using Netscape, the problem could be the Netscape itself.

Are there any particular websites that you know making your computer freezes?

Try using Internet Explorer for awhile. See if you get the same problem or not. If you don't could be a problem with the version of Netscape your using or could just be that your trying to use features in netscape that AOL doesn't support. If youdo get the same problem, either your hardware or a problem with AOL.

The problem may be in WIN98SE,the software does have problems so look at tech site for info on WIN98SE.www.microsoft,com/WIN98SE/tech/support
The first thing to do would be to run your anti-virus software and make sure that you have not picked up avirus from downloading anything from the internet.

a few things to try,
are you using the latest netscape? the pages you go to may not be supported in netscape. mentioning aol only complicates matters becuase they are so proprieatray. dont use aols browers. aols browser sits on top of eitehr internet expl. or netscape but there programing in aol doestn support alot of pages. minize aol then start up netscape or explorer. see if you freeze then.
also go to microsofts site under downlaods for internet explr 5.01 which has some updates. you can download it but unless u have dsl or faster i advice ording the cd. they only charge postage. dont believe the mouse is an issue.
hope this helps

Try slowing down your video acceleration. Go into System Properties, Performace, click on the Graphics button. Move the slider one notch to the left, restart and check Netscape. If it happens go back and move it again one notch. This happen to mewith an ATI video card and IE.
