is your PCA site working properly

Reason I am asking is that for the past few days the site is acting rather weird, pages do not scroll properly and the whole site acts slowly as though its jerking about.

I don't have this problem on any other site just this one, any body else had a similar problem.

Same problem here, but I've literally just upgraded to FF 3.6.13 (from .12) and so far, things seem marginally better.

The ones causing the problems - Bing & Toshiba at the beginning, had a section above the PC Advisor masthead which seemed to load in late which caused the page to suddenly jump downwards to accommodate it.
The Canon Ad today doesn't have this so the problem isn't happening any more thank goodness. It was getting VERY annoying. I know the ads help pay for the site so they need to be there, but the placing and layout seems to be the problem which needs to be considered.

That seems like part of the problem, and when typing a reply (same as now) the cursor is blinking and some times disappears then reappears, so annoying.


Been using IE8 will have to try another browser.

Thats better, Google Chrome doesn't appear to suffer from the same problem, I was beginning to think my PC was developing a fault.

I'm glad others are having a problem with the site, I thought it was just me. I'm using Opera and the scrolling is all over the place.

We discussed it amongst ourselves, and it appears to have been taken off the ad server, at least until they sort it out.

Thanks for the reply, I was beginning to think I was going a bit crazy, for the past few days I tried every thing to get this site to run smoothly and have even deleted the keyboard drivers and reinstalled them with no success, now I know why that didn't work.

Hate to tell you this but if I go back to IE8 the site is still as bad, pages not loading correctly and scrolling is just haphazard, working with Google Chrome every thing is perfect, even Firefox has a few problems.

Any body coming onto this site for the first time will think it's terrible.

Just tred with Chrome and I have the Canon adverts each side, but FF has a lovely clean page.
