Thank you for your reply. All I know is, when I remove the SITE STATS from my dashboard the page does not crash.
To remove the widget I stopped the page from loading before it crashed. After that I had no more problems.
Any ideas what I can do now?
I'm hoping someone who is more familiar with this forum than I am can direct me to the right area for a solution. I've already spent hours looking for answers but it seems there is too much info to sift through and I feel as though I'm wasting my time on such a simple problem.
Thank you again for your time.
