... re-installing Windows was a bold statement... I take that back.
I'm a very curious and tech savvy person, so I really want to know what is going on... this problem is ridiculous... can someone just tell me the answer?!
This issue gets in the way of work flow but it's not disabling... just very annoying that I have to restart my browsers like a bazillion times a day... ok, maybe 10 times...
The odd part is... each browser to its own, it makes it pass upload/download some times... like right now I can attach all the attachments I want to my emails in gmail and not have to restart, but when I start attaching items into say here reply box... that's when problems occur...
Downloading is another story, for example, I received three video attachments (.flv) and proceeded to download one after the other... fail, had to restart... but then I tried again... success.
Chrome like you know was working until recently, it's behaving like FF... FF is a bad influence.
Like yesterday for example, I needed to upload a 100 MB video to our server and it took a bit time... and the progress meter in our interface showed... 50% 60% 70% 90% 95% ... browser times out... WHAT?!
Then there's uploading images (logos) into certain accounts... I've been trying to upload (via multiple tabs) as many images as I can before the browser times out... it's like a ticket time bomb once an upload/download is initiated.
Like I have to scramble to upload/download after initially uploading/downloading then sometimes the problem cease to exist.
Speaking of which, I'm "prepared" to format hard drive since I've moved all my work files onto an external (my Droid) drive. I pretty much plug my phone into access files now.
My biggest pet peeve is not having my preferences for the browsers/programs I use, I have a certain FF layout etc... then having to reinstall all my software... that's why reinstalling Windows would be a pain, plus I have to sit here... or maybe stay late...
Anyway, I really appreciate your help Artellos, and if you're okay with it, let's continue diagnosing this problem until we can at least come up with a hypothesis or theory
PS: I'm also troubleshooting my Home Computer with Godawgs...well first I need to clear for spyware/malware but then the main issue with that computer is my FF crashes more times than enough and my lower right taskbar status icon for "network" "ethernet" "cable" connection shows as "not connected" and displays "the computer with the red X" then going into Network Connections, it says I am not connected to the internets... But I am... I am connected... this would happen wirelessly too... showing I am not connected, but I am!
I've searched far and wide for a solution and have checked out the associated "services" but I will pause here, this thread is about my Work Computer. but yeah... I have offended both the Internet and Browser Gods or something to receive this sort of punishment!
