the site is just so glitchy - it continually freezes, needs to debug etc - its a very heavy site (and i have 50mB)
Sadly need to get off it as everytime i try to post or respond it just locks up the machine.... boooooo:crying:

Interestingly I have experienced something similar on here. I have also had notices about problems with the certificate.

Its all the bloody adverts causing the issues , but that is the way today if you want something for "free" , the running costs need to be covered somehow .

Hi Kevin - nope its not changed a thing from this end - i've just had to use task manager to close firefox as its completely locked my machine (which is a top end i7 graphics laptop which runs autocad all day). It really is a shame as I want to use the site but its just so irritatingly slow and full of adverts that keep trying to open and roll.
I know thats not good to hear but its killing it for me.

hey there,

lets see if we can get you sorted.
most hang ups are caused by a few things:

- cache build up of data trying to load in place of new stuff that may have been fixed. do a cache clear for everything to see.
- a malware piece has piggy backed, do a full malware clean up as well.
- check if your flash plugin and shockwave are acting up. either by uninstalling it, disabling it, and also checking hardware acceleration in your browser to see if that adjustment helps as well.
- another good thing that helps is cleaning the hard back end with a disk clean up of all the temporary files. sometimes things love to hide there and cause issues.

lemme know if any of those help with performance so we can see if that sorts things out.
ive had similar issues like that before. it was usually on heavy flash supported areas on websites. it seemed sporatic but isolated the issue to those things to fix it up.

lemme know how it goes.

It is possible to run a really good forum with contributions from members and no advertising, just go to the NC700 forum for proof. Its brilliant and the people on it are as friendly a bunch as you could want. Never had so many friends i've never met!!

Hey there,

Do you by chance have any plugins/addons installed in your browser?
I know it may seem like a pain, but if you try un-installing them, and running the browser to see how it reacts without the plugins, that may clear things up.

If you do not have any plug ins, are you able to replicate these issues in another browser?

Richard.

Hi,

Hub Architecture, what version of Firefox are you using? I'm on Firefox, iMac OS X Yosemite, and I have yet to have the site lock up my system. Can you please try viewing the site in Private Browsing mode (Shift+ Command+ P) and see if you still get the lock up happening.

I also tested on Safari with no issues there either. Aeromanas, can you too do the same with Safari (Shift+Command+N). Also, if you can, please pay attention to the status bar and let us know if you notice the site hanging on loading something specific before it locks up.
