    My Home Page is extremely slow to load. I`m on Windows XP and using Internet Explorer 7. Would anyone have some ideas why this is so slow and how to quicken it up? Cheers to all:)

    Have you checked to determine the amount of data flowing to and from your computer??

    I have a small program called net.medic which I would not like to lose as it shows by means of spikes what is coming in and going out and I notice that everytime the loading of a page slows down that there is no data moving to and from. Why, I always assume that the lines are full and there is no room for the data for my page to get through remembering that the source has to receive confirmation of receipt before it sends the next packet of data. A fully burden line obviously slows down the data which slows down the loading of the requested page.

    Cheers
