Now what did you do?
For the last two or three days pages have been loading very slowly - and often hanging such that I had to hit refresh just to get the whole page to load. Again it appears to be hanging on the ad - not the top banner with the THG info but the advertising banner right below it that is centered and about 2/3 of the page wide.
This problem seems to arise on all pages - including the homepage and forum pages.
I thought I did describe the location above. Right now the ad is for Bing - but it changes. And this is only my impression. Maybe the page is trying to load something I don't see on the screen - from a lower part of the page. I don't know.
