Why do Browsers hang, freeze and crash when navigating?

by Chigal48 / February 13, 2008 8:13 PM PST

I need a reliable browser; so far Firefox seems to be it. But I want to know if there's another one out there. I've tried IE, slimbrowser, and Opera, they don't work for me. When I surf from tab to tab or screen to screen or click links, those browsers freeze and I have to "end program."

Bound to have a bug. IE and any IE based browser may have addins which cause issues. Did you try IE but without addins? Look up BHODEMON to remove the addins.

I am very sorry, but BHODemon is currently on hiatus, as I no longer have the time to devote to it (due to a house fire). You will not be able to download updates or upload reports, and I will no longer be answering emails. At some point, BHODemon may return. I would like to thank everyone for their support over the years.

The updates are not happening but the program is alive and well. Sorry to see you can't use it. I still use it.

PS. About BHO

There are other ways to control BHOs (see the wikipedia about BHO). Your choice here. I suggested an "easy" but you seem to want to try this manually, which means you'll have to read the Wikipedia about it.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
