    Hi All,
    I am having a problem with Java games taking forever to load (pogo games). The games on Club Pogo usually take 5-10 seconds to load and now are taking minutes to load.
    I have tried the usual stuff - Clearing java / browser cache, uninstall & reinstall java... Even have tried older versions and nothing seems to work. I know it's not a problem with Pogo because the games load perfectly on other computers. I have even used a virtual PC with Windows XP on it and the java games load instantly as they should.

    I have made an observation though - If I open up the java console on any other computer (or the virtual one), the messages showing the games loading fly by and the game loads. On this slow one the console messages go much slower.

    The computer is running Windows 7 64-bit. I use Firefox mostly, and yes the slowness of Java happens in all browsers.

    Any ideas on fixing this would be great. It's probably something really stupid..

    UPDATE
    I tried booting into safe mode and doing a virus scan and defrag from there. Then I decided to try and load a java game there, and guess what - it loaded instantly! When I booted back into normal windows, the games take forever again. I've played around with disable antivirus (AVG), McAfee Site Advisor, Windows Firewall, etc etc but nothing yet. Any idea of what the problem is? It's like something is scanning all the files as they are downloaded, slowing the download time... but even disabling the services for AVG and such hasn't changed a thing.
