    Default site or computer issues not sure

    I bought a new lap top this week and was extremely excited to finally be able to come back to frugal village because with my old computer i had a lot of issues doing anything.

    but for some reason its taking a long time loading anything in this site. when i clicked on log in it took ages to get to the page to log in, then too another long time to acually log in, and do anything, each page seems to take a long time to load, im wondering if its my computer or the site, or if there is something i can do to help with the process. im running windows 7.

    thanks in advance

    I was running Windows 6 with IE as my browser on my pc. FV took forever and a day to load. I had to switch to Firefox for my browser. It's fine now.

    How are you connecting to the net? What browser are you using?
    Is this happening only at specific times? What times?
    Let us know a little bit more information and see if I can help.
    Thanks!

    I suggest using Firefox Mozilla Firefox Web Browser ? Free Download

    Or

    Google Chrome Google Chrome - Get a fast new browser. For PC, Mac, and Linux

    Both are faster and more secure than Internet Explorer.
