Have been having real trouble logging on to this site all week now, takes around about 15 minutes just to get to log in!!, have now determined that it is zone alarm doing it. closed said program and able to log in in the normal 10/15 seconds. switch it back on and lo!!!! slow as a one legged tortoise. All other sites are fine it would only appear to be this one. Help!!!!!
Running win ME and all the usaul, done IE repair, done restore etc.
Cookie settings are fine, as I have said if I disable zone alarm I can access the site no problems and very quickly (as on b/b) if zone alarm is enabled then it takes between 10-15 minutes just to look at a post/switch to consumer etc. I f i try to reply it hangs so long that it "times out". It takes about 15 minutes just to reach the logon screen!!, every other site I visit is as should be. No recent programmes installed, no mucking about with setting, no other reasons. Only thing I can think of is that I did a defragment about a week ago, but otherwise I am stumped.
Try downloading ZoneAlarm again, then uninstall and do a fresh install, you will have to set up all the permissions again but it should be back to working properly again, it seems that your current version may be damaged in some way and it is possibly the original install file that may be the problem (I have known Windows to overwrite parts of files, leaving them useable but damaged.).
that would mean re-setting up the home network and re-setting all the permissions etc, I do beleive there must be an easier way? By the way I have got ZA pro, so not the free version, have tried updating but no new version available, I am now tending to think along the lines of the defrag, is it possible that this can throw things out?
giving up for tonight, will have to sleep on this problem, wil log on from work in the morning, anyone have any ideas????? HELP this site is my only addiction, (well except tabbaco/alcohol/chess/food/s** etc)
