    espn site will not load (win98se/ie6)

    Is anyone able to explain why espn.com will not load with win98se/ie6? When attempting to open espn, ie6 hangs and must do control/alt/del to unfreeze. At the same time active desktop goes down and I need to restore. Started happening to my client last few days. All other sites open fine. I cleared history, temp files. Norton AV finds nothing.

    Appreciate any help.

    Thanks,
    apapkin

    Sounds like similar issues which were effecting my system late last month. I had finally had enough, so used the brunt of my troubleshooting experience to track down the problem.

    There are a few causes that can have this effect. The first, is jacked-up display adapter acceleration. Adjust your display properties, and lower the hardware acceleration a notch. I've seen this crash I.E., and freeze Explorer. Another consideration is the JRE, or Java Runtime Environment, If you have this installed, Uninstall it, and re-install the most current package.

    I hope this helps, let us know how you fare! [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    In the forum for IE, ilona 53 Lonnie (bubbles) posted a
    URL, followed by the word (laugh).....I clicked on it, and had to shut down
    the Internet Connection to get the URL off my screen. I didn't laugh.

    Hi raybee

    I just did a Search in the IE Forum for "laugh Lonnie" and came up with 2 posts by Lonnie, neither contained an active link to a website.
    Could you let us know the number of Lonnie's post that containes the "url"?

    Have a Great day!!!
    Ken
