Avant v 11 build 6 - Pages loading slowly

Post by sarahnettles » Fri Sep 29, 2006 1:17 am

Hi all

I'd like some help please. I am using Avant (and love it so far!) and having some weird problems - Win XP machine on a cable modem w/ MacAfee.

** Pages take forever to load- up to 2 minutes. The address is correct on the address bar, but the page takes very long to load.

** About 10 out of 15 times when I plug an address into the bar, it comes back with "Oops, we can't open the web page you requested ..." I try again and the page will appear (takes a while though).

** Until the page completely loads, I can not type, click or scroll down to see any link. (ie Google, dog pile, ect.)

Would someone help me? I've dumped my cookies, history, temp files, scanned for viruses, and spyware. I've even rebooted.

Anyone have any ideas?


thanks :(

Do you have the same problems with Internet Explorer?

Well then it has nothing to do with Avant. I would check the Antivirus and Antispam software. I had just recently a similar problem with the latest version of BitDefender. It slowed everything down for a while but is fixed now.

Another thing I would try is to unplug your cable (or DSL) modem . Do the same with a router if you have one and shut down the PC. Wait 5 minutes. Then switch the router on first, wait until it has booted, switch the cable modem on next, wait until booted and finally switch the PC on.

Has helped me at times when things got locked up.

Thanks for your help!

I unplugged my router & modem and let them set overnight. This solved the problem.

Thanks!!
