When I open the internet.My start page (which is earthlink) freezes. I can go through the mail to open another page or use the earthlink search to open another page. But the start page stays frozen the whole time.If I try to close it using ctrl+alt+delete then a window will pop up telling me that the program is busy do i want to wait or end task . It will not close untill I shut the comp down but I can use the internet as long as I leave that page alone . Can anyone tell me how to solve this problem or how to make my start page stop loading up. Thanks

In Internet Explorer you can change your start page by going to Tools>Internet options and under the General tab picking Use Current, Use Default or Use Blank. The easiest thing to do is to find a page you like for a homepage (I use a local weather page) and clicking Use Current.

Sounds like there is a problem with something on the Earthlink page not loading on your machine. What is the address and I'll check it from here.

BTW, when you see wait or end task, pick end task, and do it again if you have to. It will go away.

Works ok from here. Has a big Flash ad on the right hand side that could be giving you problems. Try going to www.macromedia.com and clicking on Download Flash Player. Click Install now and go back to Earthlink and see if its any better.
