    Okay, don't laugh, but when I'm on FaceBook and specifically when I'm playing
    FarmVille IE lags and then freezes. Does anyone else experience this? Does
    anyone know why this happens? Please advise and thank you.

    HI TJ,

    Have you tried accessing FaceBook in no-Addons mode?

    There are some web sites and some IE Addons that use the Facebook API's
    (Application interfaces) to do things like... search for friends or give you
    notifications when friends are at the same sites as you.

    There were a rash of Facebook toolbars about a year ago that weren't
    compatible with IE8... The official Facebook toolbar is available from
    IEAddons.com

    Not knowing your Windows Version and SP level, I would guess that your
    computer is XP and may be using up all of its memory.

    Try - Tools>Internet OPtions, Advanced tab, uncheck "Enable third-party
    browser extensions".... restart all IE windows.

    This will stop toolbar and Browser Helper Addons from loading and will make
    IE (whatever version) faster, but still let you use Flash and online games.

    Regards.
