On my laptop, when i open internet explorer, quite often it just seems to hang and eventually get the (not responding) text.
Also, when i am on any website, HUKD for example and i click on a link to open up another page, it also hangs and eventually get the (not responding) message and all i can do is task manager and close down the pages open.

No other applications are open but it is happening more and more and obviously is very frustrating !! Can anyone advise?

Thanks

Nope... not yet.

I'm thinking it's time though.

Just wandering why all of a sudden it has started.

i agree, its so easy to use and it seems faster. plus it handles bookmarks and tabs well.
for example if you close Firefox, it lets you save your tabs for your next visit
i use either Firefox or Crome, depending on my mood :)

You won't need to de-install any browsers to install Firefox. the browsers won't interfere with each other so you can have more than one
so you won't lose anything to do with Internet Explorer, that can always remain there for you to try it another time

firefox will also extract your bookmarks aswell, plus last year i think it was, that some one managed to fill IE with a very nasty virus or trojan, and it gave them all the details you logged ie banks so they got your numbers. thats why microsoft rushed out IE8!

Thanks for the help / advice.

Installed firefox last night, it asked if i wanted to pull across all my favourites etc and it did fine.

So far so good.

Any other little tips or hidden features when using it?
All looks pretty much similar.

Thanks all.
