I have a brand spaking new laptop and an no matter what Ive tried any browser I try manages to freeze for a couple mins at a time, it gets listed as Not Responding and then spontaneously works again until I go to new page or try and scroll the page or click somewhere on the webpage. It even went unresponsive as Ive been typing this post.
The rest of my system seems just fine when the browsers go stupid. I can open windows explorer and other programs and the mouse and kb still work fine, just not the browsers.
I have a fresh copy of Win XP Home SP2 and latest drivers and browsers loaded with some anti-spyware programs and anti-virus. I've turned off any unnecessary services and applied all the patches and tried to speed up windows as much as I could with no success. [bleep] I've even tried replacing my shell with litestep and aston but no such luck, I will the replace my shell eventually anyways.
Right now if anyone has an idea or solution to this increasingly frustrating problem it would be greatly appreciated.
(20mins to type this with freezes)
