    Question Pics Slower than Snail Mail

    Is the picture loading getting steadily slower for anyone else? It absolutely takes forever for them to load now, so I thought it must be my computer, but I went to a couple of other forums and clicked on some threads with several pictures in a post, and the pics came right up and I could go right on through the pics with no delay. Soooooooooo............ what's the problem with ours????

    It sure needsa fixin.

    Hi Norman.
    Mine take long as well, and at the third one they seem to hang up. What I do is click on "previous" and then again in "next" and they open inmediately.
    I found also that they load faster and display bigger if I right click on the pic and select "open in a new window".

    Are you using Firefox? because I am, and I'm experiencing this problem since FWW upgraded the software.

    Hope this helps
    Best regards,
    Toni

    I see the problem here very occasionally so far. On the "other" forum which is quite large, it happens 9 times out of 10. Whatever it is, it seems it will get worse, not better, if we do not resolve it early.

    It can have 'days' like that. Generally just fine for me.

    Check for Spyware, I did yesterday and found 166 different lurkers which slow down openings... cleaned them and now I am rapid again.

    I use SpyBot Search and Destroy. It has worked fine for me for several years. It is free but I sent a donation because I appreciate how well it works.

    Frank, I'm always on the look out for new spyware software. I ran an updated Malwarebytes program, found 3 items. Down loaded and used the Spy Bot you mentioned, found another 35 items! Only down side, is it took quite a while to run the scan. ust remember to do this at night!! Thanks for the tip! Jim.

    Just got home from the trip, and took me ten minutes to get logged onto here, don't know if it is related or not, but I'm chalking it up to sunday night and people in my neighborhood are bored.

    Toni, I'm using Firefox also, and I can do some clicking around and bring them up individually a little faster, but it is just inconvenient that the system doesn't work like it's supposed to, and the fact that it is just gradually getting worse.

    Frank, my Computer GURU set mine up so that SPYBOT runs every night, so I don't think that spyware is the problem here.

    Guys, I'll do some more poking around, but I still haven't been able to consistently get the problem to show up here. We'll see if Darren or Bill have any other bright ideas on it. (Darren's kind of tied up right now getting ready to move, and Bill's been busy with a lot of things, too. Bullfighting in Patagonia, last I heard.)
