I have been having a problem recently that is really starting to frustrate me. Originally I could open up internet explorer (IE6) and it would open ok but whenever I tried to open another window, the second window would crash and not respond. I could close that window and the original would still be working ok though. So basically I could only have one internet window open at a time (same problem if I tried using tabs instead of windows). Not a major major problem but annoying and cutting down on my multitasking. Now it has gotten to where I can barely get one window open. If it opens ok, then I can get maybe three pages into it and then it freezes and doesn't respond and I have to close out of it. I had thought that it was a problem with my McAfee as it had expired and I was waiting for my new one in the mail but once I installed the new McAfee and ran a full scan, it is still doing it and nothing came up bad. I tried upgrading to IE7 and the internet wouldn't even load so I had to remove it and go back to IE6. It's not the internet connection because I have another computer running on my home network that is working just fine. I am at wits end here and I am ready to chuck the computer out the door. Everything else is working fine on the computer except for the internet. Any help would be awesome!!!

I just had that problem! go to control panel and add/remove programs. Look at all the things u downloaded and no longer used, delete the stuff u no longer use that didnt come with the computer. Also, if that doesn't work, try tabbing if u can.
