ok so i got a new laptop for christmas, and it has mozilla firefox and internet explorer (i assume the latest versions) and i have a problem with the internet. nearly everytime i open a new website, or even just go to google it stops responding, and i get the message it isnt responding, click end now
how can i stop this from happening?
i have no add-ons for firefox other then the aero fox theme (if thats an add on)
the same thing happens to my friend
my laptops a toshiba
and hers is an acer (also a laptop)

thanks, dean

assuming this is what you are running. Get rid of Vista! you could also try just reinstalling it. and also tell your friend to never buy another acer, they suck.

Vista really isn't bad. It is pretty ****ing awesome actually. When it first came out it sucked, but not now.

Maybe your internet connection is lost or something?

No. Get AdBlock Plus. I get that problem if I don't have it installed. Don't ask me why, but it works for me.

Some idiot turned on security way to high? When Firefox installed it picked up the settings from IE so the site filter is still the same. Check the security settings and when you get it right, remove IE completely.

i'll run a virus scan
my internet is fine tho, msn works perfectly as does outlook express
also im running XP and my friend has Vista

EDIT: did the scan, nothing was picked up so im virus free
tried installing ad-block but this message came up

Maybe your internet is teh weaksauce?

Perhaps you're connected to a public network... try changing settings to a private network to allow for less anal-ness.
