View Full Version : Internet Explorer/Browser stalling...

30-06-2001, 12:21 AM
Hi all, having problems with IE. Was on 5.0 , and now have the same problem with 5.5, as I am browsing it intermittently stalls for periods of up to a minute or so, without explanation, and then continues to the link I have clicked.............
Any ideas on a fix for this, is quite annoying.

You could try deleting your temporary net files and clear the history, worth a shot and at least ull free up some space.

is it locking up at all???
check the connection icon, is it 'flashing' rapidly? it could just be line noise and the modem is trying to hook back up. or you could have another program accessing the net in the background. some spyware even if they cant connect to the net will 'block up' the connection.
