    For some reason when I go into ESPN.com, my browser will lock up and fail to connect to any other links. It usually happens once I am on ESPN's home page, and trying to go to something like NBA scores. Or when I leave ESPN, many times the browser will stall and I have to reboot AOL to continue surfing.

    Does ESPN's use of all those pop-up screens and animated videos/ads have anything to do with it? At first I thought it was a general problem with AOL, but then I noticed it only happened when I went into ESPN.com. I even upgraded to AOL 7.0 but the same thing is happening.

    Any ideas or solutions (other than switching ISP's)?

    I have this problem too Brian, but it isn't unique to AOL. Same thing happens when I check ESPN from work on a shared T1 connection. IE will just lock up. This only started happening once ESPN started loading with all the MSN crap on its page.
