Has this always happened or is it a recent development?

What operating system are you running? (You can find out by going to the apple menu and selecting about this mac).

If this is a new development has something changed recently? An update or a RAM upgrade?

When it freezes does it just stop responding (the mouse freezing etc...), or does it give you a message stating that yo must restart?

It's been happening for about 6 months, but it's getting worse. Mac OS X 10.4.11. When I turn the computer on, it works fine until I get to about the 5th website while browsing. When I click to a site, it starts to load and then stops. The mouse works fine. I can X out of the page. But when I try to get on another, it does the same thing. I don't ever get a message. I end up having to restart to get it going again. I tried using firefox to see if it made a difference to no avail. safari is my default. I have tried shutting the airport and internet connection down and restarting which has no effect either. My wife has a Mac as well, she doesn't have problems.

Try going under the Safari menu and emptying the cache. I understand it is happening with multiple browsers, but lets focus on one at a time. You can also do a full reset on Safari, but you may lose saved data and forms.

Also, go to the Apple Menu and run a software update to make sure you are running the latest versions of everything.

Also, go to the utilities folder, and run disk utility. From there, run a disk permission repair, and see if that helps the situation out.
