PCA website problems

I'm getting a lot of internal errors, its done it to me perhaps a dozen times in the last half hour.

Is there still any problems with the website, just want to make sure its not my PC as I have installed a couple of programs the last couple of days and wonder if it might be one of them causing it.

Hi, I am getting the same, maybe not so often, but enough to be annoying. I'm afraid I have not noticed any great improvement since the change-over - apart from at very quiet times of day/night.

Same here. Get the PCA Welcome page OK. But when trying a Forum I just get a blank page and "Done" on the status bar.

I close down IE and leave it for about 10 minutes or so and then try again. Mostly it is OK. (like now for instance).

do you allow the ads to run on your computer or do you utilise the Hosts file? I run ads free on this comp ; so far all is ok; although maybe my famous last words as I have only just logged back in

my problems solved with no adds too and blocking the second cookie.

I do run it with the ads on, maybe blocking the ads is the way to go. At least I know now its nothing to do with the programs I installed. Thanks.

have you got Hosts installed on there .if not

click here

BUT important to select your version of windows for how/where/pathway to apply it ; then reboot and see the difference?

if you do not like it you can uninstall it too::))

Thanks for that, might give it a try later, I presume it appears in Add/remove programs for removal?

do you save the Pca cookies when having a clean out?

I dont understand cookie make up,but in firefox the pca cookies have 4 parts, what effect does that have?
maybe someone could shed some light on it.
ive cleaned out pca cookies ,then blocked one at a time ,then both,the site in my case runs alot more smoothly when they are blocked
is this coincidence?
or is there such a thing as a poorly designed cookie

or is the cookie having to do too much hence slowing site down

I'll tick this as resolved as I've just realised theres another thread going about it as well.
