During certain hours of the day- web sites take ages to load up: and sometimes I keep having to refresh the page when it seems to stop loading.
I use IE6, dial up modem 56k.

No worry mate, when it goes slow run that, it wont cure anything but it will show you that there is a bottleneck somewhere and knowing that it isnt your PC at fault is worth something.
