Question

Web page hangs in both chrome and internet explorer

I have taken backup and deleted files. The problem goes away when I refresh, maybe I need to delete more files. I appreciate your advise. Thank you

Since chrome and internet explorer don't share files, deleting files in one won't make a difference in the other. What files did you delete? And what web page hangs (and what is hanging exactly)?

Webpage freeze

The scroll bar stops functioning basically the page just freezes. This is a completely random event, for example if I am in hotmail and I am just scolling my email the page would completely stop responding until I reload the page or minimise it and refresh.

This issue is popping up wether I am in a Chrome or IE9 environment and is taking place randomly. The only files that I deleted are mp3 files. Thank you.

Then it seems like it's something ...

with the router, modem or connection with the ISP. That sometimes happens. But it shouldn't happen too often.

If it's a laptop, see if the same happens at a public WiFi or with a friend (difficult to do with a desktop).

If that is the reason then it is not something leading to os system crash. Correct?

I am using a pretty standard emachines desktop with a intel Celeron 450 processor, which is hard wired to the router.

Whole machine will just randomly "freeze" then suddenly continue working. Have no idea what causes. Would welcome input.

I've seen that a lot lately.

It happens a lot on the Samsung and other sites with Flash. Turning off scripts and flash cures it so in my opinion this is not a bug in the OS or Browser.
