    Slow scrolling (IE 6)

    Hi, when certain sites are viewed, the scrolling on IE6 is painfully slow to the end my screen sometimes freezes. This has only just started to happen and I have note installed anything new recently. Any reasons?

    Thanks.

    Re: Slow scrolling (IE 6)

    There are some general steps that could improve performance. Go to Tools/Options/General tab & clear history & temporary internet files. It's actually better if you boot to DOS & do this, as well as deleting your index.dat (in DOS). There have been posts on this but the Lounge search is still down.

    Additionally, you should run a scandisk & defrag. I would also run a virus check & use a utility like Spybot S&D.
    Hope this helps,

    If Spybot and AdAware don't do the trick, check out the information about CoolWebSearch . There's a link to a removal tool at the bottom of the page.

    CoolWebSearch and its many incarnations can create the symptoms you describe, especially when IE isn't kept patched.

    Hi Miz:
    I'm guessing that you intended to reply to iksotof. Nevertheless, you're link doesn't work...you may have entered it incorrectly. You can use the syntax:
    <!t><!/t>LinkGoesHere<!t><!/t>
    Cheers,

    Ok guys, emergency solved, TVM for your knowledgable guidance. Appears it was coolwebsearch, I managed to find a shredder for this nuisance. My fire wall has been upgraded!

    Kindest regards Darren.
