here is my problem with some certain website like pizza hut,gmail,nvidia,toms anything to do with java or flash it takes forever to load or sometimes it doesn't especially with gmail whenever i click on a email it shows loading on top but nothing happens just get an error sometimes it takes up to 1 minute to get inside the email, i cleared all my cookies and temp files i tried firefox,IE,chrome and all the same, i contact my internet provider and the speeds are normal. Is there something i did wrong to prevent certain web site from loading?
oh yeah and chase.com pictures dont show, just blank with a lil icon on the left things like that and yes it takes forever to load, oddly enough facebook ign.com etc etc work just fine
ISP = internet service provider
DNS = domain name system
DNS servers are required to use the web, so you can type google.com or facebook.com and get somewhere. DNS servers translate the text to an IP address (number).
An OpenDNS test is quick n simple. Go to opendns.com, and find the 2 IP addresses near the bottom of the page. Plug those in to your IP address settings for your DNS servers. Then retry the sites you're going to.
But after reading that optimization guide, I'm not actually sure this is going to fix the problem. There are things disabled in that guide that I'm not agreeing with (pagefile, prefetch/superfetc, etc). Steps 1 & 2 are really the only ones needed.
Without doing the OpenDNS thing, if you have Win7 Professional or Ultimate, you could install XP Mode with no tweaks, and retry visiting those sites again. Or if you have access to a second computer, you could visit those sites on that computer. If XP Mode or the second computer render those pages correctly, then I suspect it's something in that guide that's messed up the system.
