OOPS - I Was Wrong

    Terry R. and Twayne came to my rescue but it has turned out that I gave
    incorrect info. It is correct that at times I seem to spend a great deal of
    effort chasing my active page and bringing it back, but when I tried to
    duplicate the situation as I described it in my posting it didn't work as I
    described. When I experience this the most is in the morning when I am
    opening Outlook Express as well as my various web based email accounts.
    Usually, not only am I opening those accounts, many times I am also following
    links in those messages as well as building a document or email message.
    Apparently my problems are all IE8 based - not XP. Thanks for your patience -
    and not beating me up as I deserved. K.

    Nah, "stuff" happens! I'd say your problems are more OE based as IE8
    doesn't have OE provided with it.

    You have of course, tried a REstart, right?

    Is this all happening right after you start (boot) the computer? If so, it
    might be that the computer is still busy building up its store of background
    tasks and things might tend to fail. Try giving it another minute or so
    after the disk accesses stop.

    Other than that, it'd take more details; those were just WAGs.

    HTH,

    Twayne

    Thanks Twayne. While this happens mostly during morning startup because that
    is when I am trying to catch up to everything all at once, thru more testing
    it seems to happen anytime I go after any web based info. That would seem to
    suggest Terry R.'s idea is probably what I am experiencing - the last request
    it is given the highest priority. Wish there was a toggle switch. Thanks
    again for considering and responding to my post. K.
