is it just me and/or my computer, or has the site been verrry slow the past couple of days? and i mean, i have enough time to get up and refresh my coffee before it loads...when i go to ebay or facebook, it's normal speed:(
i will reboot computer when i'm done this morning and see if that helps. i'll report back later...

Defragment and dump all of your cookies. I do this often with this PC.

You may want to clear your cache if you visit many sites. It's like having a million things on your mind and you have to stop to think. Clear your mind.

Whenever mine slows down I run Spybot Search and Destroy, and sometimes Malwarebytes' Anti Malware.

Running fine here - are you wireless or hard wired? Could be your router has network congestion.

Is your computer running slow - or is it your internet connection slow?

Go here and test your connection speed.

Could just be your PC - like stated before - i would clear out your browser cache and cookies - if that doesn't work - i would defrag.

What operating software are you running? I use Internet Explorer on this PC.
Doing all that I said is easy and you should do it often. Especially your cookies. You should dump them daily.

Identify the problem, find a solution!

Rica, If'in you ever need computer support I will be there to help you.

I wont even charge you a dime. Just always fun to see the computer try to jump up and run right before it gets hit with the other barrel.

Normally I can solve most computer problems in 2.3 seconds.

Can't always guarantee to make it run bettter, but 100% guarantee it will cause you no more problems!

Amongst the new love of wine making, the aging life of fish keeping, the even older mmorpg-gaming-addiction... I was once dangling by my heels into computers and troubleshooting... Not that i'm the greatest at any of the previously mentioned, but i've survived well enough the last 10 years...

Defragging should be done regularly, regardless..

Disk clean up is another Windows feature that can help - can clear out some more unnecessary junk that builds up. Compressing your hard drive / information wouldnt be recommended if you suffer from the newly acknowledged WMTA because its going to require a few hours to compress it all, especially if you have a larger hard drive and it happens to be mostly/completely full..

Do you have an anti-virus program?
If not, AVG is free, and it works pretty well

Another program, for those who dont favor 'Spybot Search & Destroy' is a program called CCleaner. It will remove everything from cookies to temporary internet files; also deletes old installer files, unused/unknown leftover files from previously installed/uninstalled programs..

You should analyze the hard drive before defragging as defragging your hard drive all time isnt good for the drive so onky do it when it is needed.
