IE freezes past two mornings

by barry70 / June 3, 2004 4:05 AM PDT

For the past two mornings, my internet has been freezing on certain web sites ( for example). I think it has been happening on sites where a pop up is trying to come up. This happens on AOL and IE. I have to do a ctl/alt/delete to get out.

I then shut down, unplug and replug my cable modem and turn the computer back on.

I have also have stopped "pop up stopper" from loading on start-up. Could this be the reason?

When I do these things, it seems to work fine again. But, this has happened two mornings in a row now. In the evening after work, all seems fine.

Any ideas?

Since is a spyware and parasite site, there is no cure but to...

1. Learn about parasites at

2. Remove all the parasites.

3. Move to a more secure browser that is not a target of malware writers. I suggest ANY other browser such as Firebird or Mozilla.

Best of luck,
