High Tech..Red Neck. NOT!!

Real Estate Broker/Owner with WHISPERING PINES REALTY 20398180

I am a self proclained NON-GEEK.  I fight with my computor and lose most every time.  Right now I am having, for about the last 10 days, a real slow down in the speed when I am on AR.  The other sites I go on are a bit slower at times, but, nothing like AR.  Is anyone else having any kind of issue like this. 

Just to giva an idea.  When I log in, it will take 2 min to get to my home instead of 15 seconds.  Click on Blogs, and I wait another min instead of 5-10 seconds. 

Any ideas?

Thanks .

William,

Try clearing some of your cookies and history.  If that doesn't work then maybe a little bit of C4 but just a little cause a little goes a long way!

LOL...Don...I have a full stick I will use.  I have cleared files, run anti virus and host of other things.  Thes things seams to run pretty good until I hit the AR site.  It is maddening.

William--I recently cleared out a lot of hidden spyware from my system and it is running much faster. Invest in a good spyware removal tool and use it. If you are still having problems, visit MSN for a free scan of your system. Their techs can also help with any problems you might be having.

Like Teri, I removed some Spyware and noticed a great improvement in computer performance.  Try it.

I haven't had these issues lately. Every once and a while we get the glitches here put they usually don't last long.

Hi William, Do you de-frag your C-drive on a regularly basis? It may help.
