We have a number of XP machines, and I have not noticed this phenomenon. Check your TSRs and/or Internet streaming video or sound. Are you using all XP certified hardware? Up to date antivirus definitions?

Mine is hanging today. Nothing new installed, up to date virus checks, no new hardware or software. But I can't use IE6 and of course XP uses that to cruise files. Even my RUN line won't work right. Everything is fine UNTIL you touch the keyboard. I can click all I want to and go anywhere, but if I so much as put a www in the address line, it crashes, and closes IE. I even used Microsofts recommendations to REINSTALL the whole program and it doesn't help. I can however, use AOL to cruise and it works fine (except AOL is NOT my favorite internet navigator). I have recently installed Guard IE, but it worked fine for over a week before this happened. I would love any ideas or help. Right now I am looking at a whole new harddrive and setup from scratch.

Hi:
I had a simular problem, I have XP and it origionally was fast. Then for some reason it took Minutes and about twenty clicks of the mouse to open up another site. Every time I would click the mouse the Hourglass would change sizes and I would appear That I would get a litle further. After failing to get Bill Gates personal Number to tell him what I thought of Internet Explorer, I accidently came across the solution that made my machine Lighting fast again. On the Brouser, under TOOLS,Select Internet Options. Then select the ADVANCED Tab at the top. Scroll down and UN-Check (Enable third party brouser extensions, Then re-start the brouser. I don't know if this will fix yours, but it sure did mine.
