Pc Advisor Website Incredibly slow and jumpy

  John-P 19:24 13 Jun 2012


I really like this site and the information and users knowledge is second to none so please don't take this the wrong way, it is a genuine question.

Admittedly my laptop isn't the latest spec but its ok I think, its an acer aspire, windows 7, 4gb ram, 500hd, intel core 2 duo processor t6400, and my broadband isn't the quickest but it manages in all other areas.

Its loads up and runs all websites relatively quickly, apart from www.techadvisor.co.uk which is always slow and when I scroll up or down the page it jumps jumps along the page waiting for it to load, its quite frustrating and I just wondered why is my computer not loading this site as quickly as all other sites/forums?

Can anybody explain why this is? Is it all the adverts?

Thanks, John :)

It's fine for me tonight. Running IE9 and Spywareblaster.

You want to try PCAdvisor on an ipad if you really want to see jumping.

It's been like this for some time. Physician heal thyself!!

Chronus - hear, hear!

I think that the jumping is caused by ads loading. An anti-banner blocker smooths things considerably.

Absolutely it is the ads,whereas on the desktop there is any number of ad-blockers,not so with the ipad. It was yet another reason why the ipad was not for me.

It could also be the new spam filters!
