This only seems to happen on PCA out of all the sites I use.
Certain words in threads cause an advert in a box to appear... and on occasions that results in IE8 freezing and not responding. I normally try and keep the cursor away from such things but sometimes it's unavoidable.
Anyone else noticed this... it's infrequent, but it's always on this site.
And it ruins my perfect "10" score for reliability monitor ;)
It did it again this AM... I unintentionally "caught" a word in a thread which opened an advert... well it didn't, just opened a white box and IE froze. Tha's the usual scenario, although yesterday it happened just typing a reply.
Looked in processes this time, and ieexplorer was using 98% CPU. Ended task and the tab recovered.
This never ever happens on any other web site/pages... always PCA. As an aside to this I also notice, and have done for ages, that the fan comes on more on PCA than on any other sites... it's been on all the time I have been on here... several minutes running continuously. As soon as I navigate away from here to other sites or web pages the fan activity will reduce markedly, often to virtually nothing. There is no HDD activity in the background whatsoever.
