Can you endtask Firefox?
If you can't then there are other issues. Such as power or cooling issues, out of date drivers, etc.
My computer keeps freezing while browsing the web. I only use Firefox. For example, if I'm reading an email in my Yahoo account and then I click "sign out"...it freezes. Or if I click too fast on a link, it freezes. I usually have only two windows open at the same time, and do not have additional programs running.
Even if I use ctrl+alt+delete, the computer doesn't respond to it. I have to manually turn it off and restart.
I have uninstalled Firefox once and reinstalled it. The problem seemed to go away for a while and now it has come back. I have checked for viruses/spyware and my computer comes clean. I have AVG, Ewido, Ad-Aware, Spybot, CCleaner.
Any ideas as to how to deal with this? Thank you!!
