I have a=n HP laptop running windows XP and Internet Explorer 6. Whenever I am surfing the internet, after surfing for a while, my internet explorer quits responding. I don't lose my connection to the internet, since if I am in a chatroom or a gaming room, that conection remains active. But if I leave the chatroom, or the game room. I can't get back into them unless I reboot my computer. When this happens I can't go anywhere on the internet. All I get is an error that says page cannot be displayed etc. However, as I said rebooting fixes the problem but after a while it happens again. Sometimes it takes longer than other times.
I have run severasl spyware programs, as well as Microsofts malware program. I am also running Norton anti virus with current definitions and have found no virus's Any suggestions would be appreciated. I ahve two computers hooked to a Linsys router and only my laptop has this problem....However I should add that at one time I had this identical problem on my desktop, but that seemed to somehow magically fixed itself....
Thanks in advance for any advice people.
Confused and frustrated
