    Hi,
    Hope this is the right section to post . . . .
    Over the last few weeks in particular, I've noticed more and more that web pages are taking longer to load. They always seem to be waiting to download a picture, or a banner, an advert . . . pretty much anything to be honest.
    Some sites seem ok, but I often look at Yahoo Home page to get latest news for example, and it's become terrible in recent weeks with regards to slowness to upload pages.
    I've got an HP Pavilion with Windows XP Home.
    I use Microsoft Security Essentials which is permamnently 'On'.
    I virus scan every day.
    I've run Malwarebytes (latest version) and there doesn't appear to be any issues.
    I clean my PC every week (delete temp files etc)

    So, my question is . . . is it just that websites are getting more and more elaborate . . . or just poorly designed (Yahoo, Curry's, Amazon)) or do I need to upgrade my PC to get more RAM (currently got 1GB) . . . and also why do you think I've only noticed this over the last few weeks?

    Appreciate your time.
    Thanks
    Roger

    first thing to do is update IE to IE8
    many websites don't fully support IE7 any longer and use IE8 specific "things" that often causes a dramatic slowdown in older browers

    Make sure Java & flash are updated and any other needed updates

    scan here http://secunia.com/software_inspector/ for out of date & vulnerable common applications on your computer and update whatever it suggests
