    AARGH! Why do these things happen when I'm trying to do an assignment!!

    :help: :GAAH: :hair:

    I'm searching databases for journal articles, and everytime I export a citation to EndNote, it exports no problem but then my computer 'freezes', it tells me internet explorer is not responding, I have to close the program and start all over again! Which is getting frustrating since I have to login to my uni site and type in my password about five times before I get to the database, then execute my search again ...

    HELP PLEASE! :tears: running late with this assignment already

    What are you running xp or vista?

    Dial up or high speed ?

    Do you have a firewall that may be blocking certain sites..

    I'd get problems like that all the time whenever I used Internet Explorer. We use Mozilla Firefox now and it's SO much nicer.
