Weird internet issue

  paulwilko 09:13 09 Jan 2007

I have a weird issue at work.
It would seem it is my pc but dont know what

THere are certain websites i go onto regularly i.e. click here

Sometimes i am straight onto it and sometimes i have to sit and wait for it to load.

If i try the same site on another pc in the office it works straight away.

Any ideas what this could be ?

Limited band-width on the target site

More people trying to access the site that it's Server can handle.

THx for the reply but as I said on the Original post, if i use a different pc then it is fine.

I am sure its an Spyware type issue but i cant find it !!

Timing is all. As the problem, by your own admittance, is intermittent. It could be the above solution.

Could be a network bottleneck, how many PCs on the LAN ? Assuming it is a LAN.

I have a limited knowledge of pc's and networks, but what I do know for a fact is that it is something on my pc that is doing this.

Our LAN consists of 6 PC's and never are they all on the internet at the same time. It i sonly a small office and I know what happens.

I literally would ask someone in the office to goto the website and we press enter at the sametime and i will be stuck waiting for the site to load whilst they would be on it straight away.

There is defo a setting or bit of naughty software on my pc.

Any other thoughts ?

Could it be that your administrator/manager is saying something to you about accessing that type of site when you are supposed to be hard at work :-)

Try doing a bit of system house keeping. Delete all cookies, temp internet files and history (unless you require the history).

Sounds as though the computer requires an early spring clean. Doe's the company run a regular maintenance procedure, on 'all or any' of their computer's and IT equipment!.

This will be totally my, I assume saomething i have installed or some thing that has installed itself whilst viewing a site has done this.

Looking at these types of sites is for work, or at least thats what i tell myself !!
