    Hi,

    When I click on my FireFox icon in order to start-up the internet on my PC it seems to be taking longer and longer for my Google homepage to load up. It now takes about 15-20 seconds before I can begin 'surfin' the net.

    What could be happening here?

    Cheers,

    Chris.

    Chris,

    What Operating System are you running? Does Internet Explorer take equally as long to open/display home page on your machine? Do you find it is the application itself or the website?

    Domasmak,

    Thanks for your reply.

    I have an XP and IE takes the same amount of time to load - never used to take this long.

    Cheers,

    Chris.
