Hello,

Running Windows 98 SE with internet explorer 5.5, it seems that every ten minutes or so IE 5.5 stops responding. It could be in the middle of downloading a page and will stop half way for a few minutes and then continue.

I have checked for Adware, Spyware, and done a repair on IE 5.5 and I have found no adware or spyware and the repair fixed nothing. I hope somone can help me with this, because I don't want to have to re-install the program again, I have a lot of information in the drop downs and passwords and don't want to lose that and have to enter that info again.

I hope someone can help me with this problem

I connect using dial up, but that isn't the issue, because when my IE 5.5 stops working for that period, I can check mail, and do other internet things.

The first thing I checked into was my connection

Do you have a network adapter (ethernet card) in your computer??

OK, try this, go to Start > Control Panel and double click Network.
Find the tcp/ip for the network adapter and double click it. Change Obtain IP address automatically to Specify an IP address.
For the IP address, type in 192.168.054.008 and for the subnet mask, put in 255.255.255.0 and click ok. Click ok again and after it reboots see how it is.

Hi Del,

That worked for one computer, but running a network between two computers and the other computer couldn't find it. We also have Zone Alarm running on both machines, but even with them shut down, one computer couldn't find the other. What do I do to solve that problem

Didn't see anything about networking two computers when I said to put an internal IP on the NIC. How do you network the two machines? Hub, switch, router??

Sorry about that I should have mentioned that earlier. The computers are connected directly through thier NIC Cards with IP address

One (1) compter has two NICs which is bridged, the other (2)computer is plugged directly into one(1) with a cross over cable, the other nic in computer (1) is not currently in use other than being bridged in windows XP

Computer One is running Windows XP
Computer Two is running Windows 98SE

Hope that helps
