Browsers freezing intermittently

After browsing for a spell, all my browsers freeze and I need to restart which usually solves the problem. However, it is extremely irritating. Any ideas how I can stop this happening or what is causing it?

Re: Browsers freezing intermittently

I've been experiencing the same issue for the last 2 weeks. Do you use BT virus protect or a Mcafee security software?

I used to get that issue with IE. Switched to chrome and now all OK.

Many thanks for the replies. I have now uninstalled McAfee BT Net protect Plus and installed Avast. They want me to pay £1.50 per month for their Premium service but I havent down that. Is it necessary? I will let you know how things go.

My browsers are now working much better and dont freeze. Google chrome often has unresponsive pages though. Would I benefit by deleting the programme and re-installing Google Chrome?

It wouldn't do any harm so worth a try.
