Hey everyone, here is my problem. I have a 4 month old computer with xp home and IE 6 and it has always had this problem, but it's been worse lately. I will be searching around the internet for 5 or 10 minutes and all of a sudden it will first slow down, and then won't open new windows or do new searches. I'll close IE then try to open it up again and it usually still won't work. at this point I erase cookies, clear files, and try again. Sometimes this works but mostly it doesn't. Usually I will log off, go into another user account, open IE, log off, go back into my account open IE and then it will work again. Lately I've tried opening other apps and that sometimes works. I have adaware and spybot, and those are usually clean when searching for spyware. Also, I have zonealarm-pro and i just bought 2006 norton yesterday thinking that would clear up any viruses, but it is still doing it today just as bad as ever. What could be the prob? Is it my settings? Thanks for any help.
