    Me too. I think it has slowed down a good bit just recently. It does take pages longer and longer to load. I guess it comes with ever increasing popularity.

    it's the advert links at the side, they are trying to connect to a server that isn't reponding well http://1.marketbanker.com

    I have had to temporarily add it to my hosts file as an exclude so I can use the forums without wading throughh treacle

    It says it will over-write the Hosts file I already have, is this safe to do?

    I don't care about the gifs etc but I had to resort to using opera earlier & I hate opera, to use these forums and the only good thing about opera is it tells you which sites are loading in the bottom bar & it kindly told me that marketbanker.com was trying to load , but it was hanging on the loading so making the forums worse than useless.

    Wondererd why we weren't geting so many problems posted today :D

    I hope Tech guy doesn't get upset with me for telling people how to overcome his ads and hope he doesn't lose too much dough from it, BUt I wonder how many people ever click on the adverts (I don't )

    Yes, unless you have added specific addresses either to block them or to avoid using a separate DNS server

    If you have the spybot added hosts file don't worry, they are both the same, just open the hosts file yourself and add the entries above
