Hi all,

My first post, has to be a question :)

Everytime I try to change my bids and click on update within Overture it's crashing my Internet Explorer browser.

This has never happened before, anyone have this problem?

Thanks for your help.

It crashes for me when I try to add the broad match option to my listings. I can do it one listing at a time but if I have a group selected to try to make changes I end up having to reboot my computer.

Changing browsers was going to be my suggestion too. I was constantly having problems with Overture crashing IE (and usually my computer would go down as well), so I switched to a Opera - and I'm never going back!

Same thing happens to me in IE. I always manage my Overture accounts in Mozilla now. [mozilla.org ]

Overture with Win 98 and IE 6.0 - lots of crashes
Overture with Win XP/Win 2000 and IE 6.0 - no crashes

Wierd huh? What has OS got to do with websites?

OV always causes my IE '98 version to crash at some point.

Along with this problem, slooooow loading pages and late reports it really makes you think about the poor quality of the hardware, engineering and coders that they must have.

They have been having problems for over a year now and nothing seems to improve. It's almost like they have a corporate unwillingness to face the problems - probably because it would mean new investment in infrastructure which would would hurt the bottom line and we, as advertisers, are not a priority.

I am on XP using IE 6.0 and I used to get frequent crashes too. I have found keeping the amount of keywords shown on one page at 40 stops the crashing from happening. If I show 200 keywords on a page I am almost guaranteed a crash.

The reason it crashes is exactly what hobbnet said, there is a high probability of crashing when displaying 200 keyword listings on a page. Kinda stupid if you ask me, because I want to make multiple changes quickly and then get out of there...

I've found if you want to use I.E., the advant browser shell (makes IE into tabs and adds some features), doesn't crash on Overture. Also, I've never had a problem with phoenix/firebird (mozilla builds) on OV no matter how many KWs are displayed at once.

Dude, everything crashes AOL, assuming they don't disconnect your slowest on the 'net connection before it crashes.

AOL is not even compatible with PDFs.
