    Do you have another browser to test the site on, firefox for example?
    Otherwise I'd check round the microsoft website for security patches maybe?

    there isnt one ust something about unresponsive program and needing to close

    First find out where the proiblem is:

    Download firefox [url]www.getfirefox.com[/url] and install it. Can you use it to browse friends reunited?

    Yes - IE is the problem
    No - Internet is the problem.

    I suspect IE will be the issue, so which version of windows and what version of IE are you using?

    Do you have adware protection?
