Is it just me or is this forum very slow to come up all of a sudden? It could be my latest version of AOL (9.5). I have had problems accessing other sites with it.

This has been a problem for about a week. How about you all out there?

It is slow at certain times of the day, when it's wake up time in the US and many of the members log in.

Sometimes, when I am all alone in this part of the world, the forum is sensibly faster.

The Admin are aware of this problem, and are trying to locate why it is happening.

It can be SPAMMERS re-loading pages in an attempt to slow down the site to push their SEO stats :mad:

I couldn't even get to and navigate here in less than 10 min. per click, until I bought and used a program to uninstall AVG Free 1011. I guess the combination was a nasty coincidence for me.
After finding another free virus program and a spyware one today, I tested them by coming here.
Everything's fine now, but I had a couple long days of hell. (Lucky I'm retired.)

This site is mostly fast...... but some times it does get slow.

I had AVG for quite a long time..... works as good as anti-virus works, except even AVG is doing too much in the background, now, slowing down everything in general...... I learned about Eset. MUCH better...... It is available free, but the paid year subscription is only less than $40.

The best anti-virus is your router..... stops junk the best.

I had AVG and it did fine until I got the 2011 which slowed everything to a really slow crawl. First, I couldn't upload it because it couldn't uninstall the
earlier version. Finally, I bought the uninstall program and then got the 2011 which made it nearly impossible to get to BWorld. Now I've got the first really free thing I could find, Comodo, I think and a spyware program (the 2d free thing I could find). They both claimed to have found and destroyed a bunch of stuff and machine runs like new.

Interesting. Sadly, this slow speed has driven me away for a week or so. It is just too cumbersome to get through the site.

Good to hear in a bad way that it is not just me.

I hope you find the fix and boot the spammers.

Hi guys both at office and at home I can't really see the site being slower than usual but for the usuall hiccups so everything seems fine on my side.
As for the AVG free version, I have the 9.x and I just swapped to Microsoft Essentials (free also) because AVG is gettiong heavy on the system lately and the Microsoft Essentials seems to work good. Even if I can't really get rid of the AVG for now but I'm working on it.

We will see.

Cheers.

I agree, searching for an item and waiting for it to load takes awhile. Seems like the site is bogged down because it is slow loading. But for free, what the heck!

Just out of interest, do any of our premium members find the site slow?

Premium members can turn off adverts.

Nope; in certain areas where temperatures get very high (UAE or KSA) during the summer season.

Else it's business as usual, 40-45 hours / week.
