Hi Computer Wizards,

I'm having a problem with my IE. My computer frequently freezes when I try to access pages. I'm also unable to close pages, either by right-clicking the box at the bottom of the screen, clicking the "X" at the top of the screen (which I can't always do because sometimes the page will be frozen in its minimized form and doesn't respond to the "restore" command), or by bringing up Task Manager and trying to close it through there. Sometimes pages won't minimize. Sometimes pages won't load at all; the "connecting" message will go round and round for hours if I let it. Sometimes Task Manager won't come up. Sometimes the whole computer gets completely constipated and won't respond to any keyboard input. I have to turn it off and back on to be able to use it. Another thing that happens is that the "Pg Up", "Pg Dn", scroll arrows and the clicking buttons and tapping square have no effect on moving the page, or the effect is very delayed. I tap the "square about 5 times, and then 5 minutes later the page moves.

I don't go to any fancy sites; no games or anything like that. I hardly even ever look at U Tube or any videos because they seem to upset the computer more. I look at news, music sites, some sports sites, alot of medical and health web sites, email (comcast etc), google, wikipedia, facebook, the usual everyday stuff that I imagine most people use.

I have Norton AV because it's provided free with my ISP.

THANKS GANG!
