    The problem that I am having is that after logging on to the home page. The page instantly freezes not allowing me to go any further. The members online shows me listed but I can do nothing else other than close right down and begin again.
    Prior to writing this I had to close down about 8 times before it allowed me access to any of the topics.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Thanks,

    Cydersyd.

    Hi Syd, Jim's right you probably have a corrupt browser cache. Try clearing it, there are some instructions here. Clear browser cache. You could try another browser Firefox is best, followed buy Chrome which is OK. If you are using internet explorer, you are using the worst browser in the world and really should ditch it :)

    If you have no luck, please let me know. (y)

    Thanks Jim..

    yes, try Firefox and see how you get on with it.

    Irrespective of browser used they all need a bit of housekeeping occasionally, otherwise they slow down with all the cached pages and can eventually freeze or crash..

    If unsure about cleaning browsers manually, try CCleaner.. it cleans out the browser and gets rid of a lot of other rubbish besides. I use it about once a week..

    It's free, safe and easy to use.. download the Free version here http://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/download
