Exclamation Web images are slow on my PC
For some reason images on both my browsers (IE7 and Firefox) are very slow to load text and download speed is normal but images take a lifetime or not at all, google images, yahoo images and website images are all slow. Is there someone with an answer?

Just tried it, still have the same problem, this appears to be only with most sites because some actually load pretty quick.

I don’t think I have any add-ons active at the moment, I have reset to the browsers default settings.

Tried it still nothing, I donít know if this could be a problem but I do run a web filter. But I donít understand how this affects my browsing speed on certain websites only now after a month of running the filter without any problems.
