it doesnt always happen but sometimes when i open an ei ver. 6 browser it will take forever t load. until i open my aol program then ie browser will pop right on like it is supposed to. i have cable internet so it shouldnt need aol for anything. so do i have a setting somewere that is not reading the cable access? also when i get an error when trying to close a window my windows xp shows a window to send the error to microsoft but when it checks for the connection it just sits there until i cancel sending the error. so it seems that sometimes ie cant find my internet cable. help.
