If it's only the one site, the problem is likely to lie with the site. It may be having bandwidth problems or just a lot more traffic than normal.

Please help someone..thx.(P.S.took 26 mins to d/load BlitzIn 2.5 chess program which is 1.3Mb size !!).

Is the dl speed better from other sites? If so then it's a server problem most likely, pos due to high traffic slowing things down.

My problem seems to be resolved tho don't know how.I thought it might be my local BT exchange doing repairs/maintenance but who knows? Anyway,my machine seems to be back to normal now so I'll close this thread.Thx for responses.
