    Takes a while to load every page. I know around 230 am eastern time the board quits responding for about 15 minutes or so, I assume that is when they run maintenance but it has ben slow for me since 4 am.

    There has to be something wrong with your net connection or software. With the problems you have had lately I would recommend a virus scan or trimming the fat on your OS.

    And yet ONLY this site is slow. I have a very good virus checker that automatically checks all incoming traffic. And it does a scan once a week also. The slowness today is once again due to that as.ad crap site. It simple hangs there for 20 or 30 seconds.

    Ah ... that explains it. You may use your firewall and block that specific address so your virus scanner doesn't hang by checking it, that should increase your speed without opening yourself up to risk. Ad sites like to link too many things at once so a scanner has a lot to check when it encounters such a site.

    I do not see anyway on my firewall to block a site that is not a program on my computer. Nor do I know how to get firefox add ons.
