Why is that no matter what browser I Try using Windows XP Home Java Script is not properly Executed, after all these years of using the forum? I have just downloaded and installed Chrome but it's just the same, PAGES DO NOT LOAD WITH Java Script Enabled.

PS I do know Java Script is Needed for Adds plus the icons above the Response bar. But other than that I have no IDEA other than, it just does not work. The Reason for me is that it loads Adds and this is the problem as it hangs when trying to load web adds

I think that you may well have a problem with Java on your system. I have Javascript enabled (accepting the risk) and pages load ok on PCA using IE9, Firefox, Chrome or Safari.

This is on several PC's Laptop or Netbook, they cannot all be wrong

Ditto on several pc's - all working.

Possibly slow loading of ads. What is your download speed? Is your ISP blocking them?

What add-ons are you running? Ad-blockers, do not tracck, etc.

Try IE without add-ons and see if it makes a difference.

I have a lap top and PC, both have java script enabled and I have no problems with pages loading using either IE9, IE10 or Firefox.

Loading PCA is slow at any time,just watch the rotating circle in the tab which is loading all the adds that I have blocked. Move to another page and again it is slow to complete loading. Compared to every other forums I use this is by far the slowest and most problematic and to be honest for a PC magazine is quite an embarrassment though obviously not to the powers that be.

I recently upgraded to FF18 and found my Plugins disabled with no way of getting them to remain enabled; this was causing all kinds of problems with various sites. As a result of a search I found this Mozilla article and followed the "Re-initializing the plugins database" section which resolved the issues. Whether similar problems can be resolved by such action in IE I an uncertain but it must be worth a try.

As for your upload/download speeds, I can only dream of achieving your better speeds even at low use periods. You must have a lower contention or better lines than I have.
