I have a really weird fault with internet explorer. Every now and again when I click a web address the page just refuses to load. The screen just goes blank an the tab changes to `connecting` like its getting ready to load but thats it. If I copy the address from the top of the page then open a new IE window, paste the link and hit load then it will load straight away. But the original window will just sit there for ever. Even clicking refresh or back arrow/forward arrow doesn`t work. It just will not load.
Its happening every 15 minutes or so now.
I have 3 desktops and 2 laptops (hardwired and wireless) and the fault occurs on all of them so its not the PC.
I`m on sky broadband with a sky router so I`m wondering if its the connection somehow or a setting somewhere
Generally my connection is pretty solid. If I download a file it never gets interrupted. Its just when a page loads. Weird!!!
nhojnhoj35 - I appreciate your problem. It is all too eay to suggest a change of browser but why should you have to! I had the same problem as you with ie6. I then changed to ie7 and all was OK for a few weeks and then ie7 often does not want to load. Sometimes changing the speed or heaviness of click on the browser icon affects the ease of opening but this only occurs with the ie icon and not with any other icon so it cannot be related to the mouse!I cannot understand the reason either. I must admit that I do also use Firefox but it would e good to have a consistent ie browser.
What OS? Zone Alarm firewall? If Vista/Win 7 then ditch. Make sure you uninstall properly. Search how to remove. OSs own firewall very good. Sphinx free firewall controller will allow you to control your applications. Free version; click here
