Reboot and press Ctrl Alt Delete to get your system monitor to pop up. See what your CPU is running at and how much memory is being used. You may have a bunch of programs running in the background that shouldn't be.
LOL, thanks for the advice. I am not running lots of stuff, I have just a few things running at any one time, plenty (? ) of memory I think (256k) and it happens at a few other sites, too. New info: since MSIE gets snagged, I came here last with an Opera browser and it closed apparently without prob but when I went to shut the system down, RUNDLL32 was hung and wouldn't close. I think there is something about that lib with a prob. Anyway it is not a serious problem but interesting.

To those who wonder why I am still running Win98SE and MSIE, I do a certain amount of web development, LAMP stuff, and I use my several systems as test clients to talk to my Linux "server". I have Apache w/PHP running on Linux and I use my other machines to see which browsers work and which don't. Also, I still run Win98 because it is the only OS I have that supports my ATI Rage Fury Maxx video card. I would have dumped thid dog long ago were it not for that.

Although as jeremy mentioned there are many advantages to having it enabled.
Yes, I was logged int o the site when this problem arose. And if you've seen my posts you know I was unaware of spell check ( So, I will give the Javascript thing a try, but I personally don't see the relation. And it is MSIE 6, and today Opera 9. Thanks.

I would just like to make a comment that ocassionaly this site is very slow and will not connect. I usually start thinking its my internet, but then i open other sites with ease, maybe it really is my internet, but just would like to mention this observation, yesterday when the site was slow, i even went to another PC, with windows, and tested it, again LQ would not load and other sites would... so not sure if theres an ocassional issue with the server or what but usually this site does load well and quite quickly.

mitchell7man, have you set LQ to always remember you, or do you log in each time? Because some ads have been known to slow down LQ, which is why jeremy doesn't use them on the logged in pages.

I know management knows I hate the Splunk ads because of their distraction factor -- but here is a possible bandwidth argument against them.

We are well aware of your opinion on the matter and appreciate the feedback. Posting about it in every semi-related thread is probably unnecessary though.

I had the same problem with my personalized Yahoo page a couple of years ago, and to make a long story short, it turned out to be a glitch in my ISP's server. If all else fails, you can call your ISP's customer service when something isn't working correctly. They can monitor your log and help find the problem.

Cheers
