    Default do you think???

    Hi everyone, I have been having some problems as of late with clicking onto my start button to open up the browser..sometimes when I click the button "appears" to look like it is stuck in...then I have to wait awhile until it unfreezes which takes about 2 minutes or so...well I was sitting here and it did that my screen saver came on and I moved the mouse and my start button was ok again...does this the screen saver have any impact on it do you think?? or is it maybe my computer is getting so old that this is just one of the problems I have encountered? :roll: thanks again as usual

    At a guess I would say you have a frew addons that are loading.
    Some may be ok others not. Called BHOs most are justs pests.
    Suggest you read the article in the Tutorials section and follow the one that deals with spyware .
