Question about Toshiba Satellite 1415-S105 Notebook

Internet Explorer/Firefox stops responding

I have a Toshiba Satellite L300-1AQ which I purchased one month ago. I am getting very frustrated with it as it varies randomly, sometimes I have it switched on for an hour other times its about ten mins when either IE or Firefox stops responding. I get the little busy hourglass and the bar on the bottom loading but it never gets there. I know I am still connected to the internet as my email program allows mail to come in and/or I am chatting on msn messenger. The only solution is for me to reboot the pc, sometimes it takes about 10 or more mins for the system to shut down. I seem to be the only one in my house affected by this as my daughter has a much cheaper Acer laptop and has not once had a problem with it.
I am running windows Vista

Thank you

I had a few people who had problems similar to yours it needs a lot of work arounds.

1. Make sure your firwall or virus program does not interupt the IE. (try closing it for a while)

2. Put everything in IE in defaults.

3. Update the IE directly from the net

goodluck

I keep getting pop ups from antivirus GT how do I stop them They freeze my laptop and turn my screen dark


Thank you for your question.

Without going too deep into technical details, Popups are not "viruses", they are "malware" (malicious ware) and are not detected by a Anti Virus Programme.

In my case, I use Firefox Web Browser instead of Internet Explorer. In the "Tools/Options/Content" there is a check box to mark to stop Popups. It does a fantastic job, well worth considering. Link to download Firefox is below.

Internet explorer not responding


I will tell you the easiest way to fix this issue.

Get yourself some blank CDs or a flash drive.
Find a computer with Internet access (such as your local library, at a friend/relative's house, work, etc.).
You had to have access to the Internet to post this problem...go back and use the computer you used to access this site.
Download the installation file for Internet Explorer then save to your disk or flash drive.
Uninstall IE and re-install it using the file that you have downloaded.

While you're downloading Internet EXPLODER (YES I MEANT WHAT I TYPED), you should also download Firefox (free Web browser) and install it too. I promise you'll hardly use IE anymore and Firefox is more secure than using IE (as it is a component of Windows making you more vulnerable to security risks).

Well, if you still have the problem or ever do in the future, I hope this helps anyone who sees it.

Windows Explorer is not responding


Regcure can fix minor ptoblem to the registry , but it is not of any use against virused or problems caused from spyware.

If you reinstalled windows, Update Internet Explorer, Internet Explorer 6 normally crashes: Internet Explorer: Get It Now.

If IE keeps crashing, use Firefox, it is much better.

First down explorer then firefox why is my p.c. killing my browsers?


By "Explorer" I'm assuming you mean Internet Explorer and not Windows Explorer, since you refer to other browsers. This sounds like you have gotten some viruses. Do you have anti-virus software installed? All Windows Defender does is protect against ad-ware and spy-ware or in simple terms, pop-ups. I would suggest you get a good anti-virus program and scan your system! By the way, you don't have to download anything to get viruses from the internet.

Just won't work anymore!


I had the same problem, and a friend said photo explosion was conflicting with internet explorer 6. I uninstalled internet explorer version 6, and that worked for about 3 months. Now, the program won't run again. But, I did just install firefox, so maybe that's it.....
