Problem with just one site..

  awest3 17:50 22 Nov 2010

I've used "diynot" for some time now with no the last month or so I've noticed its got very slow to load web pages.. I also have red crosses where there should be pictures. Otherwise I have no problems with web sites which load very quickly..

Windows 7. 4gb Ram. twin 750gb drives. Dell inspiron 530s with dual core 8400 processor.

Hmm..just noticed that my other PC..xp sp3 etc has the same issue

Make sure you have the latest Flash and Java updates if you use them and remove the old ones.
Other computer has same problem so maybe an ISP problem.
Maybe firewall or other security blocking it.

I take it you are using I/E if so try .Tools.Internet Options.Security.Click on custom level and scroll down near the bottom to Active Scripting and disable it.Then press apply or whatever is in the box that pops up.
Now your browsing and opening pages should be a lot quicker.
If no difference just reverse what you already did.

Thanks guys...

did the 'Active Scripting' disable and back to instant access...Can I ask why it affected only one site..?

the knowledge out there is incredible...

Hmm...may have spoken too soon..!

Although I do now get instant access to the first web the next level it does exactly the same as before i.e goes away for a few minutes...

I also get (20 items remaining) downloading pictures click here

at the bottom of the screen....

Your click here will not work for me.probably something to do with my security.
If using I/E have you got compatibility mode ticked.

Sorry..I did not mean to put in a 'click here', I typed in the url as it came on the screen forgetting that it would interpret it as a click here... it should have said (//

Not sure why...but its back to normal..? almost instant response...

one of life's mysteries I suppose.
