Before we get started making a splash page on this tutorial, I highly recommend using Firefox for your web browser. First: Save your login info and passwords and make sure the browsing data is cleared to prevent freezes. You can also use Google Chrome and clear your browsing data if it freezes. Anytime that you are working for a long period of time, on AdCreator.Design, and it freezes, this means you need to clear your browsing data .
