Every couple of days when I am browsing using FF, it just completely freezes without warning. Nothing can get it back, and I cannot even use Ctr/Alt/Dlte. The only thing I can do is turn off the computer at the main power switch and start again. My son does not seem to get the problem when he uses IE. I am loath to abandon FF, but this is really getting on my wick. Has anybody out there got an idea what is causing it?
When I said that I turned it off at the main power switch I meant the case's main power button. I have not added anything recently that I can think of, and I have not long reinstalled, just a few months ago, and that would be the last thing I would want to do. However, if it comes to it I will move over to IE and see if that stops the problems I guess.
Thanks to those who have responded, and there are certainly a few ideas to look at. The profile does seem a very distinct possibility.
One thing I forgot to mention, and I have just remembered is that 'Spydoctor' puts up a warning that it has blocked 'firefox.exe' as a malicious file, when in fact I open FF and use it. I wondered if that has anything to do with it.
