Internet Explorer intermittently failing on Windows XP Computer
Posted on 2002-05-30
My IE (6.0 I think, with the newest updates) starting experimenting intermittent problems, crashing (usually when clicking on a link to open a new page).
I decided windows xp must be messed up, so I installed a new larger hard drive, and reinstalled windows xp, along with some other software (opera with java plug-in, eudora, ws-ftp etc.) and updated the windows to top quality. I've started experimenting the same intermittent problems with internet explorer again.
I have another computer at home with internet explorer, and visiting the exact same websites, I've never had a crash (that I recall), i use both computers extensively. So I do not believe this is "one of those things", there must be a fix to make the work computer work as well as the one at home.
What can I try? I already tried bringing up Tools > Internet Options, and setting security and Advanced at the "Default settings."
note: home computer (one that works fine) uses a dial-up. computer at work is on a network attached to a router that uses adsl.
