Hi, I have been having problems with my computer when I come onto this site. At first it was just the smilies not being in the right places. Then it would not keep me logged on if I went from say Scotty's site to Laurens. Now my computer freezes up after just a few minutes of being on IDF. I have to run my Advance System Deep Clean and then it is OK as long as I don't come on here. I do not know what else to do to fix the problems. I tried just reading and not posting, but that does not work either. Thanks

My dear hubby is not here to answer your questions. I don't know what you mean by PC and browser. I use firefox to sign onto the computer. I use Advance System to deep clean and also AVG. Hope that answers some of your questions.

Okay, Firefox is your browser then. by PC, I wondered if you used a Mac conputer or windows, sounds like you use windows.

Maybe it's just a setting or code the admin can spot that will help you original.gif

I have windows. I know I've heard my dear hubby call it Windows 2007 and also maybe XP? He usually keeps things updated. My computer is only a little over a year old if I remember correctly. ROFL I really don't know that much about it. I just expect him to keep it running for me.

Is it Windows 7 Home Premium? I'm trying to look for what type of Windows I have. I know that his work lets them buy windows at a really cheap rate so he keeps it updated.

I've tried Chrome the last two days. My computer still bogs down and that was with just looking at the site and not posting. I have to deep clean it whenever I leave. If I don't come to this site my computer is just fine.

I use Chrome for over a year now. most of that w/o nothing added on.

My only problem is there seems to be a time out feature that my computer and IDF force me not to visit the site until its been hours. I get page can't be found. But I don't bog down and can go to other sites just fine.

I doubt anyone else is on IDF for over 24hrs and most of those 24hrs as weel so they would never encounter my problem.


Others use chrome as well.

So for you it must be something to do with how your computer and IDF talk to each other.

I do leave my computer up. My dear hubby says I should close it down if I'm not on there. I usually have 4 to 6 different pages up at once. I like to check different things at once. hmmm

I don't understand how I can tell if my computer and IDF don't know how to talk to one another?

Now for some reason I just got a message saying that the site was using up too much memory. Could that be what is causing it to lock up. I close it down and run the scan and then I'm ok. I've had to do it 4 or 5 times today! Maybe, I should ask dear hubby for more memory. Can I do that? haha.gif haha.gif haha.gif I can just see me telling him I need a bigger, better computer just to post on IDF. haha.gif haha.gif haha.gif

I use firefox most of the time for my browser, but sometimes it slows down on IDF too so I switch over to Opera. Haven't tried Chrome yet.

Not sure why IDF would hog up more memory than your other sites you visit.

Is it expensive to get more memory? There is still time before santa.gif gets here. kiss.gif kiss.gif kiss.gif

No, it's not that expensive at all.

In fact memory is about the cheapest thing you can buy to upgrade your computer.


Though it might not fix your problem.


I think maybe you need to see if clearing your cookies esp for this site might help. Maybe the cache has been corrupted and that's why it isn't working for you.

I get off the computer and run a scan 4 to 5 times a day. Sometimes more. Doesn't that clear out my cookies? If not how do I get rid of the cookies? Maybe, I should just give them some milk and call it good!! haha.gif haha.gif haha.gif Ooops. Sorry, I really couldn't help myself.

What is a cache and how do I clean it up?

Thanks for posting on here and trying to help me.

scans are for spyware or malware or both.

cookies and cache and history are all apart of your browser. (Internet Explorer, Firefox, Chrome, Netscape, Opera etc) they all have different ways to go about cleaning those.

Too much to try and teach you...maybe if I knew your specific browser.

I have personally had to 'repair' several systems running AVG. The first thing I do now is uninstall it. I will typically do additional maintenance issues as well, but once I get rid of AVG the systems run a lot better. I personally use Avast.

But it is your system, and you should do whatever you need to keep it secure.

It slows down in general, and IDF is where I am most of the time, the Plugin-container.exe used by firefox slows down the browsing, and no matter how many times I disable it, it comes back
