That would tend to indicate the problem is on your end, where "your end" is your computer, LAN or Internet connection.

Given that unexplained sluggish performance on a MS-Win PC is often a symptom of the computer having become compromised, I always run extensive anti-virus/-worm/-trojan diagnostics on such a machine.

But that's a whole 'nother topic, best suited for a whole new thread in another forum.

No other sites have the same problem and the machine and the browser are the same.

Sorry, I just had to keep complaining cause I like the place and all but tire easily and go elsewhere.
Again.

My computer was just "tuned up" so I am checking things out. Yes, I still have IE but all the other sites I go to are even faster now. Not here. I am typing this faster than the letters come up on the screen. Horrid long time for pages to fill.

It ain't the browser.

I am noticing some names on other sites from here more than before.

I wonder why.......

I understand it is free and you get what you pay for but being the impatient sort might have - no that isn't it at all - Something is wrong with the site.

Sorry, can't take it.

Sorry to hear you're still having problems, but on this one....

Far from an expert on this sort of thing, but it seems to me that if you're composing a post you're doing it on YOUR machine, the site won't have anything to do with it until you actually submit the post/reply.

Maybe Semi Jim or admin can confirm/deny that idea.....

That is absolutely correct.

However: The client machine being made overly busy by a combination of poor content and bad browser design can actually slow local performance to the point where keystroke echo is slow. Not saying that's happening in this case, but it can happen. (N.B.: I've never seen that here. Then again: I don't even use MS-Win, much less MSIE.)

Agreed.
I don't know how the electrons flow.
I only know it only happens here.

Are you sure you don't have a virus? Some of the symptoms you describe can be attributed to viruses. If you have a top tier antivirus program, update the definitions and run a scan. If you don't have a top tier antivirus program, download Malwarebytes and run a scan. It couldn't hurt.

Today no email messages.

A while back another forum had the same problem and I only found out about it when a mod looked at the returned mail from my ISP and sent me the message. I then had the ability to contact my ISP and have their automatic block removed.

It might not help, either. Here's why:

Most MS-Win users run with Administrator privileges. This is the same as operating as "root" on a Unix system. It gives whomever is running, and whatever they're running, free reign over the system to read, write, create, delete, modify whatever desired--incl. the files that make up the system, itself. So really good virus', worms and Trojans modify parts of the system in such a manner so as to hide themselves from anti-malware scanners or even fake updates to them.

The only two certain ways to clean a system are:
  1. "Nuke and pave": Reformat the drive and re-install from scratch. Any backed-up data you wish to restore must be scanned by a competent and up-to-date scanner before being returned to the re-virginized system.
  2. Scan the MS-Win partition from outside it. I boot from a Linux "live" CD and run an updated copy of ClamAV against the MS-Win partition.
That being said: What will often work, but is far from guaranteed, is to reboot the system into safe mode with networking, get updated versions of multiple anti-malware programs, and delouse the system from there.

At this point I'd normally give my usual speech about not running with Admin rights and not using any more MS malware than absolutely necessary, but I've learned such advice is generally futile, so I'll not bore y'all with it.

Did that. See above post. (yesterday)

Thanks for the non-speech.

Again - it is only here.
