High Traffic Volume?

I've had a terrible time getting onto websites over the past few days. Is there just a lot of traffic volume or should I stick a supercharger on this 'puter? Just wondering if anyone else has been having this problem. :?

I haven't had any problems, either. Maybe your ISP is experiencing technical difficulties or something.

Z, I think you might be right, I don't think anything is wrong on my end and the ISP I have only offers slow service (56k, I live in the country.) Nicole, I'm a good boy, I don't visit those type of sites!

Me too, DC, today it is very slow and it is frustrating. I blame stupid old MSN - they kick me off regularly whether I have been good or bad. I finally quit using hotmail because they now make you enter another code to enter before you can send an e-mail, and that does not let you forward an e-mail to a friend. Ah well, no more ranting......but yes DC it is slow.

Norge, I didn't have problems until I updated Windows Security Friday morning, my computer has been going crazy ever since. :? I assume (hope) it's a coincidence.

DC, what O/S are you running? Was that the Service Pack 2 for XP that you installed? I've heard that lots of folks had problems with that one.

You might want to set aside some time and call your ISP Tech Support, explain what happened, and see if they can walk you through something to fix it. I've had to do that many times.

I have ME, Allen, not sure exactly what to do with it, I'll take your advice and contact my ISP.

I have the XP, and wish I had windows 98 back, fewer crashes and lock ups then.

Been there, done that.....

Tried ME, went to XP Pro, now I'm back with 98se. Everything is so accessible and easy to use. Especially as I change hardware components quite a bit, XP would go crazy. A real PITA.

Then again, with my old steam driven P3, couldn't ask for a better OS.

If I had my choice, I'd be using an Apple.
