For a while I was getting this Wilders forum, and it was the only one, completely crash my computer. It was intermittent... some visits would be fine... other days... every visit would result in a freeze on every try to get in here and read the posts. So I started doing all sorts of tests and runs to find why. I found it. For some reason... and maybe someone knows why... it's due to having the IE browser animations enabled... as per the default setting. Since I disabled this setting I have had no crashes at all. The only difference now when coming here is that I no longer get any avatars to move. They are all static, but that's ok, I'd rather that than to be crashed all the time. So why does that happen. My system is 400Mhz Celeron with 256Mb memory, and running IE6 on WINME via AOL. Is it a speed thing with my processor a bit slow by modern standards. It can't be the memory, or is it an AOL problem not able to handle the GIFs coming from so many different URL's etc. Is this is a known issue. And if anyone has similar trouble... give it a go at disable and see if you get a cure like I did.
