| Kaustubh, acts up. Restart and seems fine for a while. Sounds an awful lot like a memory issue. Memory gets full and either triggers buffering (operates, but slooowly) or simply gets overwhelmed and won't do anything. Maybe you can install additional memory? First thing I'd do is delete 'index.dat'. |
A common ailment is a file called 'index.dat'. It gets read every time and can take quite a while if it’s too bloated. It's like a log file and keeps a record of every site you visit on the web. Empty, it's 32K, but it can grow HUGE. It's a protected file and can't be deleted by normal methods. CCleaner (free @: http://www.ccleaner.com/) can get rid of it when it’s ticked (not to worry, it gets rebuilt EMPTY on the next boot.). May not be your deal at all, but won’t cause any harm to try. I run it often. At the same time, you can delete 'temporary' files (you can also have them deleted automatically each time you close either your browser or OE can't remember which).
