During certain hours of the day- web sites take ages to load up: and sometimes I keep having to refresh the page when it seems to stop loading.
I use IE6, dial up modem 56k.
Any ideas? thks in advance....

No worry mate, when it goes slow run that, it wont cure anything but it will show you that there is a bottleneck somewhere and knowing that it isnt your PC at fault is worth something.
