The web pages on this site take forever to load. It is very frustrating when you have to wait 20sec every time you click on a link. To be honest I'm over it. I'm not going to waste anymore of my time waiting around for pages to load. Is anyone else having the same problem or is it just my PC?
If you are talking about the forum, it's probably just your computer.

5. Click "Run" again
6. Enter "%temp%
7. Enter "Control" and "A" at the same time. This will highlight all the items.
8. Click "delete" Don't worry. Again, the computer will not delete important items to run it.

I have an old Gateway laptop with XP.. An HP Pavilion dv6-322dx Entertainment PC, 500GB/2.4GH/4GB memory with W-7, and an HP 15 in W-8 or 8.1. All of them are having a hard time running Facebook. Freeze ups on the two HP’s,,, problems with “long running scripts”,,,, and does anyone know a cure for that??
My daily routine is to check the weather radar,,, local and national NOAA,,,, then fb, the 4um, my email, then Yahoo news. The quickest site is the 4um,,, unless they are having problems.
Almost two years ago, I had the best internet connection available here,,, a mobile hotspot 3/4GB with national service. It worked flawlessly everywhere except at home! SOB!
After that,, I signed up with another carrier that offered wireless gateway routers,,,, meant for home use, but could be operated anywhere in NE Wisc. It’s speed is only 900MB,,,, but I seldom have faster speed than dialup. It has a 15GB monthly plan compared to only 5GB with the hotspot. I would go over my limit 2 or 3 times a year with the 5GB,,, but I’m always over with the 15GB plan?? I’m uber pissed. I even went over my limit in Feb,,, when I was gone for 10 days and had the thing unplugged.
It’s Cellcom,,, a Wis company that is endorsed by the Green Bay Packers. I went around and around with them when choosing the plan. I asked them about their speed,,,, after the 30 day trial. They told me about the 30 day trial,,, and my response was: I know my speed will be great during the trial,,,, but what about after it? Well,,, that’s what the 30 trial is for!! But what about after it?? You get 30 days to test it!! I know that,,,, but what about after it?? That’s why we give you 30 days instead of our competitors 20 days!! This went on for 10 minutes,,,,, they just repeated the same crap that they were told to say.
To get internet service, you must sign the contract, which only protects them, and it makes no promises whatsoever about the speed or dependability of their service.
There are other “no contract” services available,,, but the speed and dependability is also a problem.
Our landline company is now offering DSL,,, but that too is having problems. Our phone service here is really bad,,,, especially after a rain. A woman in the service department said that “woodpeckers” are attacking the phone lines,,, because the DSL lines give off a hiss that the birds can hear?!! The repair truck came a day or two later with a 4 foot section of outer casing,,,, with 5 woodpecker holes in it! Well,,,, I’ll be!!
It is not your computer. Remember, the internet original's purpose was not become the "dumping ground" for all of this "garbage" heaped upon it by all of these commercial enterprises and all of these "non-technical" users all over the world.
Beginning last week, this site was VERY sluggish. It harkened back to the dial-up speed response days (ah, the good old days) of 14K baud rates. I could zip through many other websites (dating, video, email, amazon, ebay, etc.) with ease, but THIS site was sluggish. So you think it was YOUR computer's fault? Stop blaming the hardware, software, firmware, peripherals, etc. etc. etc. Put the blame where it squarely belongs or start taking some data communications courses. Having worked with computers before the dawn of the Internet, do not ever assume the blame is where you think is the most likely culprit. Sometimes, routers, servers, power surges, daily maintenance, transfer of storage, etc. can wreak havoc to computer operations. Unless you are actually monitoring the data communications lines, you cannot assume that the problem lies in your "own backyard".
All of sudden, it seems to be responding faster. I did NOT make any hardware or software changes to my system for the past week.
Is there a problem with your website? The website is very sluggish and responds slowly after clicking anything on the screen. It has been this way all this week. Is there a problem with the servers?
We bring our apologies for the incovenience caused
We have fixed the problem, everything should work well now
I’ve talked with a few people about my speed,,, complaining that the internet provider needs more antenna capacity. They replied, that it is most likely the cables coming from the towers that don’t have enough capacity.
This week, my hometown is flooded with people,,, Friday thru Sunday, almost no service until after 9:00pm,,,, everybody is on their I and smart phones. They are mostly tourists,,, so the local companies are getting paid by volume,,,, therefore get priority!
The internet providers get their money from us,,, whether their service is good or not,,, no incentive to make improvements.
Another reason computers can be slow at times,,, is if they have scheduled tasks,,,, and you have not turned it on for a few days. They are doing the tasks and trying to update at the same time. Whenever possible,,, I do manual updates,,,,, and set it to let me know when updates are available.
