View Full Version : Slow load time

Jan 24, 2007, 06:48 AM
For many weeks now, perhaps even a few months, I've had a problem the very first time I view the main forum page each day. The page itself seems to load up just fine, but the banner advertisement stays blank. Everything slows to a crawl. Sometimes an item appears in my task bar at the bottom of the screen that says "Check Version." After about a minute that item disappears, Java starts, the banner ad loads, and everything goes back to normal.

If I leave the site and come back later in the day I rarely have this problem, although it does crop up occasionally. It only happens when I'm using my work computer, so I suspect the issue is at my end. But clearing my cookies and making sure Java is up-to-date haven't fixed it so I'm looking for other ideas. I'm using IE.

Is that "Check version" message for Java? You could try disabling the version check to see if it helps... You can find the Java setting at the control panel.
