Ok a while back I asked for advice re browsers. I ended up catching a nasty IE virus, which I couldn't rid myself of, so instead switched browsers.
I used FF, Opera, Chrome.
Great. Only FF isn't reliable (lags up, crashes), Chrome panics everytime it hits certain software apps (presumably Flash type stuff according to the crash error message) and Opera well - having un-installed/re-installed it's just a damn mess.
Ideas anyone please? Otherwise I'm poking my eyes out with a blunt spoon.
One of them at least. I might save the other for when I find the answer down the line
FD, I've never had FF lag or crash. Seriously, ever. Are you sure you don't have a larger issue? Switching browsers doesn't necessarily wipe the issue from Windows.
Go to cnet.com
free AVG virus cleanup.
free PCS virus cleanup.
edit: make that Advanced System Care cleanup.
edit: and visit iobit.com
There's a choice of browsers here with information: http://www.browserchoice.eu/BrowserChoi … ice_en.htm
Hope you resolve the problem soon - I had much the same thing with FF and IE, but Chrome is working well for me so far.
Frogdropping, I just want to know why you normally sharpen your spoons.
Well that's easy - sharp spoons are want to do less damage when I throw them at the dog. When she deserves it of course. I'm not entirely mean
@ To Start Again - hey Miss Pretty
Although she has been known to kick cats too...
I'm not even going to bother arguing with your logic.
No. there's no point. I'm hard-wired the wrong way.
Today my friend called. I answered the 'phone (landline) and started talking. Whilst chatting I plugged the hoover in. She immediately vanished.
After messing with the phone for a minute or so I just put it down and wandered off to hoover. When I went to unplug the hoover I realised why my phone stopped working. I'd unplugged it to plug the hoover in.
Or there's the time when I was taking a Vit C every morning. Until my daughter pointed out that I was taking Zinc. I based the fact it was Vit C on the colour of the bottle - orange.
Never bothered looking at the label
@ Jadwigga - the only time I kick the cat is when there's an absolute necessity. Like I said - I'm not cruel me.
I have nothing helpful to add. I just wanted to say "Hi Frog!!"
Thank you all
I shall look at this in the morning. Chrome is currently messing about - The following plug-in has crashed: Embed-style Adapter For Google Chrome/Opera/Etc
Lovely. No idea what that means or even what adapter is playing pop with the browsers.
@ Shogun - I just don't use IE - ever. I daren't. The virus is still in it/with it - anytime I post content, reply, comment (on any website) I leave a spammy link behind. It's not mine - it's the virus. And I've never managed to work out what it is. So I just don't use it.
FD, I'm pretty sure "shogun" has something to with feudal Japan.
I never use IE, either. It's a magnet for online horrors. I'm just wondering if it's possible that the issue with IE could have affected any Windows files. If so, you might have connectivity issues, etc., regardless of browsers.

For several days I have noticed my Google Chrome Browser loads HubPages so slow that I change browsers and go to Internet Explorer instead. Just curious if this is creating problems for others as well?

I may have missed a response to this issue, and if so, I apologize. I run linux mint 16, with either Firefox or Opera as my browsers. Recently I commented on a Hub whilst on the public library computer, which uses Win7...

So I am constantly experiencing this problem lately and it is making me quite angry! I am writing a hub and go to save it/text and the whole screen turns black. I can not do anything but get rid of it and try again....
