Does anyone else's computer "freeze" when on Cafe Mom?

Okay I am computer stupid, but when I am on cafe mom, my computer freezes, the only way to get it back is to shut it off. I have virus protection, and it lets me stay to look at or answer about 6 or 7 questions then freezes? Does anyone know how to fix this? It started about 2 weeks ago? Any help would be appreciated!

  • This weekend it kept doing that. It was so annoying. It wasn't my computer, because everything else was fine, it was just this website.

  • Mine doesnt freeze but the pages don't seem to upload right...I click on a question and a blank page pops up...I might have to refresh the page 2 or 3 times before anything actually shows up....I think it might be my internet connection though cause when I went to my mothers house yesterday with my laptop I didnt have that problem

  • When that happens it's normally the website your on. It's done it to me. Since Friday only some pictures come up on here but on faceboook all my pictures come up. Also, sometimes it's the net you use.

    Over the weekend my computer got a whole upgrade from my S/O it works faster now but still cant see pictures. He's thinking it's the aol itself.

  • I think it's all the darned pop out advertisements they have added. It's super annoying and I've thought about just quitting cafemom.

  • It's from the ads. Depending on what browser you use, you can see which web address it's trying to load that's slowing you down (each ad is stored somewhere else). If it's the same one always hanging, block it so your browser won't load it anymore.
