Help!

I am having severe problems with my Blog List. I get somebody's site on to my screen, read the blog, leave a comment, come off the site and click on the next one. But before the next one has time to come up on the screen the one I have just left returns, and returns, and returns and I can do nothing to get rid of it short of pressing control, alt, delete and shutting down and starting again. I can't find out what is happening - I don't think it is me pressing the wrong button as I did every move very carefully yesterday and it still happened. It is so frustrating as I so want to read all your lovely blogs, which get more Christmassy by the day.
Has anyone got a solution or anything I can try, please?

Sadly, no immediate solutions
it is the grinch got into the works.
Do hope someone out there can help you
so sad to miss out on the Christmas fun.

Weaver, I've never heard of this before...does it happen in other instances of typing on your keyboard? Maybe it's a sticky key? If not, I'de contact your blog administration with the tech question. How frustrating that must be!

The ghost in the machine. It must be dreadful and for someone as dedicated as you to blogging, a nightmare. It's amazing how dependent we become on our computers, then when they let us down it can feel catastrophic. I have no solutions beyond the earlier comments. When I'm in trouble I call for my daughters. Then my husband, if they can't manage I call in my friendly computer man, Eddie who installed our system in the first place.
hes wonderful. I recommend him, but he's a bit too far away to be able to help you.

Sorry and good luck with it. It's bound to get better soon.

Oh those glitches with blogger can be so annoying! It almost sounds like the grinch that stole blogging! Hope you find the solution soon.

How infuriating Weaver - I'm sorry I can't help. Blogger seems to have a mind of it's own - my problem is not being able to leave a comment after enjoying someone's post. It doesn't happen on all blogs and only intermittently on the affected ones, but it drives me mad. Do hope someone will find a solution for you.

I've suffered that same gremlin several times myself. I have no answers for you as I've had to do as you did and sign all the way out and come back. It's a pain in the bottom. It eventually stops but why is beyond me. It has to be a Blogger thing as I never have it happen anywhere else. Hang in there!

Hello Weaver,

Hope things are improving! I haven't experienced this, touch wood, but know how frustrating it is when things go awry.

No suggestions either Weaver, just the reassurance that every time I get a bit of blogger weirdness it usually sorts itself in a couple of days.

Thanks for the advice - I am keeping my fingers crossed that it doesn't happen today.

That happened to me 3 times, once at work. It hasn't happened in a while, but VERY FRIGHTENING. I can't recall which site I was on, but have a feeling someone has a virus, maybe? can you check with Blogspot.com?

I had this happen yesterday morning for the first time. It was a site that included music, so you can imagine the cacaphony from my computer. I had to shut everything down - I felt like the scene from Fantasia - the Sorcerer's Apprentice!
It has to be a blogger problem, not your computer.
