When I click a link from HTG email newsletter lately it freezes my PC (Win7) until the web page loads. I am about to unsuscribe because of this. Can anyone clue me in on what to check to mitigate this situation? Thank you.

No problem here. Pages pop up immediately. It must be something in your configuration or internet connection. What is your default browser? Do you have any trouble with other emails with links?

ormdig hi and welcome to HTG

The site is undergoing an upgrade at the moment so some things may not work

Look at settings

Hi guys, I have used IE9 since it came out and don't have any problems with other email links. This just started a couple of weeks ago and only with HTG's email. If I go to the site in my browser and link from there the freezing doesn't occur. What settings would I need to look at? Thank you.
