View Full Version : The Impossible "Surf'n'Compile" Lifestyle

Does anyone know why, when I start my Internet Explorer browser, then go to compile later, the whole system freezes?

My internet connection doesn't cause this, because I've connected to the internet, and compiling is possible.

And even when I "x" out of the browser, I have to reboot the computer before attempting to compile OR ELSE...

Could it be Microsofts way of discouraging "Surf'n'Compile" guys like myself?

The most annoying thing is that often I want to compile a posters code to see for myself their problem, but, alas, I know that I have to go thru this huge process in order to check their code and then post a reply---Ughh!

Maybe I'll download a different browser...

Its probably a dodgy internet explorer installation....

first try running sfc.exe and see if that chucks any problems at you. Next try the internet explorer repair tool which can be found from the tools menu on the microsoft system information tool.If that doesn't sort the problem out then it may be a dodgy compiler installation so reinstall that.
