Hi all
Not sure if it is my computer or not, but when I scroll through threads on this site it is very jerky and slow to respond, even using up/down arrows doesn't help
Any advise from all those more knowledgable than my humble self would be appreciated
Cheers Ray

Same here.

I have recently downloaded Internet Explorer 7. It may have some issues. I am also running a very strong scanning program at the same time and that interferes with everything.

I am on dial-up. Broadband is hopefully only a few days away :-)))

Cheers

Well ok, now I know it's just not my computer, maybe David knows something about it
Thanks Willem, and by the way I am on Broadband so that isn't the problem and just now I see my typing is acting slow as well (seriously)
What's going on here, will reboot and see what happens
Cheers Ray

Poppy, you need to run some anti virus software (Nortons, AVG, or the like) and some anti malware software. ("Adaware" from lavasoft, and "Spybot Search and Destroy" from Spybot, both free downloads). This has been shown to catch about 99% of all malware on the first pass. Do this once a month or so. First attempt to clean your system may take a while (1-2 hours or so), but there will be a noicable increase in speed.

Adaware

Spybot Search and Destroy

Another thing to do periiodically is to clear all temporary internet caches, as well as actually turn your modem and router/firewall off, then turn the modem on, allow it to boot, then the router/firewall and allow it to boot.

This makes it difficult for some malware to send information "under the table" as you effectively have a "new" address and the malware relies on working under the cover of darkness on the old "direct" address to your computer (Computer nerds, don't jump down my throat, but this is he best way I have found to explain the bypassing of the DNS server and changing you IP address by the new DHCP address you get given by a reboot.)

I have just uninstalled Internet Explorer 7 because everything ran so slowly. Back to normal now.

Cheers

There are no issues that I could let you know about. No new advertisers or strange functions added to the system. I have been doing some adjustments to style sheets and various other elements however scrolling up and down the page using your browser has nothing to do with any online issues - once the page is rendered on your screen there is NO server activity till you click on something.

Having said this performance of screen components could effect functions on your computer but nothing in this respect has changed for ages. Try this version of ExplorOz and see if it makes any difference Static Layout. This layout version turns off most of the DHTML elements this may make a small difference if you are using an older machine however really it is all very basic stuff and youd should not see any major difference.

After all this it is difficult to really say what may be a problem - we test with several computers, several O/S & browser combinations on various performance machines and we do not see an issues such as this.

Let me know what else you see - I change stuff here everyday and have been known in the past to inject a problem that I cannot see or reproduce - any additional information is also welcome however I would ask that you use Feedback or email to alert me - I may and do miss forum threads.

Hi David
Tried your static layout version and seems to have solved my problem, so have saved that to my favourites and deleted other version
Thanks for that, much more enjoyable now
Cheers Ray

If this helps at all, I do not have any problem at all. I am using Windows XP Media Centre, Internet Explorer 7, Norton Security, Adaware, internet supplier Telstra Bigpoind Broadband ADSL at 1500/256. I delete browsing history, cookies, and temporary internet files etc. (the lot - see under Tools) after every internet session. I only turn the internet phone modem power on when I am using it, turn it off when finished.
