Momentary black screen on this site

  Binzy 15:22 16 Nov 2009

When I open the PC Advisor website I get a black screen for a second or two. It then clears. I've had this problem before and somebody very kindly helped me with it - but I forgot to make a note of it and have searched the help room but cannot find it. Can anyone help me please

It's not a problem - it's the new design of the PCA website. There are a couple of other threads about it running currently.

One is what I posted, it seems like its on black all the time now, it easier on my old eyes, not as tiering as the white and blue

This is something new.It opens as a full black page for a second or two before opening properly.
Those on high speeds probably do not notice it.
But I do and it has only being doing it to-day.

Pink then to black for me

I am not talking about black down the sides .The whole page is black but just for a second or two.

Yes - that's correct - it happens at all speeds since the change of design.

I don't see what the problem is - just close your eyes as you click the link if it offends you.

I found it a bit disconcerting to start with. When it first started happening a few days ago, I thought my PC was throwing a wobbly. But after checking with other sites and finding it was only happening with PC Advisor, I realised it was their way of keeping us on our toes! Bit like sometime back, when that advert put everyones backs up, including mine.

Still this isn't as annoying, it's here and gone in a flash, even though my PC is quite slow.

Looks like its returned to Blue Screen

Still black here!
