Hi all,

I seem to be having trouble with my Flashblock add-on to my Firefox browser on My Windows XP Professional Edition service pack 3 computer. It causes my browser to slow down significantly. I also noticed it also interferes with my google mail, and causes it to slow down. In my event viewer I have also been getting W32Time warnings. I also have been getting program hangs while it has been enabled. I have disable it and my computer seems to be running normally.

I actually like this addon, so is their any alternatives addons to this program that will do the same thing.

not sure why your having trouble with flashblock unless it the wrong version
flashblock only stops a connection to flash embedded in the webpage which usually speeds up page loading...it works like adblock plus

as for the W32Time warnings...try checking to see if your computer is set to the correct time...
more on that error here...
