    I belong to several forums. This one is, by far, the slowest. Is it because of the all the ads?

    I am also on several forums and this one runs just as fast as the rest of them.

    Thanks for the replies. I'll have to look into what's going on with my computer

    I'm kind of baffled. I disabled my antivirus. That did nothing to help. I went to other forums and they're super fast. Just SMF is slow. Do any of you subscribe to the forum so that you don't see ads?

    You probably have a flash issue.  Get the latest version.
  8. Or disable flash altogether and avoid the insecurity issues inherent with flash.

    I disabled flash and no difference. I hate to take up space on this forum with a slow computer problem but it means the difference between visiting the site and not. It is that slow. Nothing else I do on the computer is that slow. The only difference I see with this forum compared to others is the sheer amount of ads.
