    Hello.

    Is there a known issue with Internet Explorer v8.0, in old Windows XP,
    freezing/hanging on various video Web sites? My friend and others, on
    http://www.videosift.com/talk/This-site-keeps-getting-hung-up, say
    people are having problems there and other video Web sites (e.g.,
    http://www.roblox.com/).

    Thank you in advance. :)

    Hi,
    First clear the Temporary Internet Files.

    Then:
    Troubleshoot Adobe Flash Player installation for Windows:
    http://kb.adobe.com/selfservice/viewContent.do?externalId=tn_19166
    and
    jd-adobe Troubleshooting Flash Player stability and performance:
    http://blogs.adobe.com/jd/2010/02/troubleshooting_player_stabili.html

    Or, it might be a bandwidth/traffic issue with no solution on the user's
    end.

    Hope this helps,

    They say it doesn't happen on Firefox but if the sequence is
    1. use IE until it hangs
    2. try Firefox

    perhaps they should try a new sequence:
    1. use Firefox until it hangs
    2. try IE

    What conclusions would be drawn then? ; )
