Earlier several members had posted they were having trouble downloading some parts of this site. I can not open any pictures or discussion items. When I click on these items it freezes my computer and I must restart back to the home page.

Iam not a computer person so do not know what is actually happening.

I am using Microsoft XP Professional .

Anyone else still having problems.

I just went to the Photos & Videos section and looked at dozens of pictures with no problems. I do recall I had a similar freezing problem on this web site when I tried to open one particular thread, but was ok other than that. I use a Linux operating system (not Windows) and Mozilla Firefox web browser. Possibly a difference there.

This site is ver highly deponent on Javascript.  Javascript is about the most non-standard "standard" there is.  Different browsers implement it differently.  It's gotten a lot better in the newer browsers.  So my advise is to make sure you are using the newest version of the browser of your choice.  IE 8 should work fine, or any version of Firefox version 4 or above (newer is generally better). 

The other possibility is that you have a malware installed in your browser.  Again, updating your browser will go along way to getting rid of malware and preventing reinfection.


I was having the same problem using Windows 7 with Internet Explorer 8, upgraded to IE9 and problem went away.


The issue is with IE8 and earlier (we use it at work) and I have the same problem...you can switch to firefox or use IE9. All the IE's by M$ are garbage IMHO.  I've used Firefox with no issues for years.  It's way ahead of all the other browsers out there.



If you have IE-8....Enable Compatibility View under Tools


Me and several others had the same problem and thanks to Tom Howker,(and no thanks to Zenith.Aero) this seems to have fixed the problem...

Thanks to everyone for your suggestions. Great group of people to ask for help. Jerry
