yes constantly. it has to do with the adserver not delivering the ads in time for the next refresh so the browser freezes waiting.

I guess that is a possibility - i did notice [at least one time] that I was able to get into an e-mail RIGHT after an ad at the top of the page had changed ...

BTW: My Mom only has dial-up. NEVER wanted high-speed, WON'T have it. BUT, I have been thinking about paying for her to get "triple-play" anyway. You think the adserver problem might go away if I get her high-speed?

My Internet seemed to get slower and slower, lagging during page loads, etc. I had highspeed cable, but that didn't seem to matter on either my XP desktop or XP laptop.

Last summer I ran across a good deal on a Win7 laptop. After I connected it, I was amazed at how much speedier my Internet became. A couple of months later, I replaced the XP desktop with a new Win7.

So, Yes, the problem could be partly with dial-up and partly with the computer.
