Vista - loading webpages RRS feed

  • Question

  • Why do certain webpages take so long to load?  Many times, when pages are taking thier time loading, the page will revert to a search page.  Using the same DSL connection, my laptop loads these same webpages immediately.


    Is there a setting somewhere i can change?

    Some pages contain huge amount of advertising code executing when visitor waits for their opening completes.

    For example, http://www.howtonetworking.com , http://www.chicagotech.net and many others. Try to click those links and you'll see what I'm talk about. May be, you have visited some pages of that kind.

    You wrote: "Is there a setting somewhere i can change?" - I believe there is no such settings. If they (theoretically) exist, why did MS disable 'em ? And it's fact, that most software tools promising "200% acceleration of connection speed" (or so) is nothing else like trojans, adware, spyware, dialers etc.
