A frozen thread

8 posts in this topic

This is about the 'What's Your Laptop Wallpaper?' thread, by sees. I went to this thread but was unable to post my wallpaper pic there, so decided to see if I could do it by using my 'snip tool'. The picture I snipped was deemed too big and then the thread froze. I had to close UM entirely and start again. Each time I go to the thread with the aim of removing the giant picture from the window you type in, everything freezes and a message comes up saying it's trying to fix the problem but can't. Please can someone un freeze me! :(

:lol: hahaha! I just went to the link you suggested and thought 'this looks good and easy to follow', then a large window popped up asking for my email address so that they could send information to me. I didn't want to do this and tried to close the window ............................. but it's frozen in place!!!!! :lol:

OMG!!  :o  So sorry...on reflection I see it gave basic info which you may have known, e.g. CTRL + ALT + DEL?  blush.gif  Presumably you managed to get out of it i.e. you made this post!?

Have you tried doing a virus scan?

Sorry, I didn't explain that clearly: the frozen pop-up window only stopped me from looking at the site you linked to. When I moved back to UM it didn't follow me.
