Browser closes with games

  willyv 11:56 31 Jul 2009

hi all.
a friend of mine was chatting about playing some old spectrum/c64 games online and i have tried but my browser seems to close unexpectedly whenever i try to open them. i have tried 2 or 3 different websites and both ie and firefox. i have made sure java is installed.

it seems that it is not just games
i was trying to book a holiday aand a few websites just close the browser in firefox, and in ie i get a red cross and the error message 'When a website causes a failure or crash, Internet Explorer attempts to restore the site. It stops after two tries to avoid an endless loop.'
please help

If they are Adobe Flash/Shockwave-enabled sites, try uninstalling them in 'Add or Remove Programs', then reinstalling.

Download links if necessary:
Flash click here
Shockwave click here

If no joy with the above, it will be helpful if you gave us a few sample website links to test on our systems/browsers in order to determine a possible cause & solution for the problems. G
