Lori, I am also using JAWS 11 with XP, and I've found that JAWS increasingly has problems managing IE8. I don't know about you, but I'm often working with several webpages at once. I've learned to close pages I'm not currently using with control-F4, especially if the page is data-heavy. One objective validation for this method is that I start noticing problems when my PC starts making a lot of noise. Close down a few windows, and the noise dissipates. When I'm not using IE, I close it down completely. On my system, the two biggest sources of apparent memory leaks are JAWS and Outlook 2003. I find that closing down these two applications periodically also helps performance with IE. If you have room for more RAM, you might consider adding it. I have 3GB on mine. _____ From: jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx [mailto:jfw-bounce@xxxxxxxxxxxxx] On Behalf Of Lori Duncan Sent: Monday, March 28, 2011 1:08 PM To: jfw@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Subject: Jaws freezing Hi I'm using Jaws 11 with windows XP. I'm having problems with Jaws on the internet. When I'm on a webpage and am using my up or down arrow keys to move fast up and down a page for example, Jaws will suddenly stop talking, and won't re-start, not even when I go into the Jaws folder and sellect from there or use a short cut key. It's happened a number of times today, and the only way round it is if I re-boot my laptop, which I know isn't good for my hard drive. I'm not sure what's caused this problem, but I have been getting error messages from Microsoft asking me if I'd like to send an error report, but it doesn't say what the error is or how I fix it. Could the problem be net-based or something? Any advice would be wellcome. Thanks from Lori Duncan.
