hey all, I have a friend that has just bought a new hp with vista home premium, amd 5400 dual core and 3gigs of ram. When you get on the internet things will be working fine and then out of nowhere the browser just stops and wont respond. Ive tried clearing out all the cookies, resetting all the IE defaults and just closing and opening it back up. The only thing that works is restarting the computer. Why does it stop responding, then you restart the computer and it works again for a little while and then you have to restart again? This computer is connected to a router with an rj-45 line along with only one other computer. The other computer runs xp pro and works fine all the time. Im thinking IE is bad and the rest of the system is fine. What are your thoughts about this. Thanks in advance.
