    Why does my computer freeze up every time I try to click on a story or photo on the F&S; site? Is there some virus potection or phishing filter or something that I can disable that would fix this? Anybody else have this problem?

    I have lots of problems with this site. I downloaded Firefox and use it when things are really bad. I think F&S should take care of this, but they don't, They've got an Oscar or something.

      I have trouble all the time with freeze ups, sometimes just back out and quit. Other sites are not nearly as problematic.

        I use Mozilla Firefox. Only problems have been with uploading questions. If the PC freezes it might not have enough RAM (Random Access Memory) to run the files. Could also be a video card/driver problem, or you don't have the right software to run the video.

        Before adding more memory try deleting all temp (~tmp) and cache files and empty the recycle bin. This has to be done periodically. You can download a program called ccleaner to do this and more. I use ccleaner everyday. Also, having several other windows open or programs running can tax the system.

        If you're able to run videos from other sites it is probably not the video card/driver. If you need to check this then do an online search for video card troubleshooting for your PC.

        If you get a little information bar across the top of the window when you click on the video it is likely that you don't have the right software to run the video. Click on the bar and follow the instructions.

        I can't think of anything else. Good luck.
