Slow ARRSE

Discussion in 'ARRSE: Site Issues' started by Yokel, Jul 5, 2013.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. For the last couple of days, every time I have opened an ARRSE thread/page it has loaded, then the machine has said it is still downloading, and then it locks up the PC for the best part of a minute.

    What's going on? Any ideas? Other sites are OK.

    You would need to say what browser and operating system you are using.
     
  3. XP (still) and IE8 (think) via AOL. Seem to keep having trouble updating IE.
     
  4. There may be a clue here...

    More seriously is the machine on continuously and if so has it been rebooted recently or the browser cache emptied?

    To check which IE you have click the "tools icon" on the browser and then "about IE" and it says there which version you have.
    Your XP needs to be up to date (service pack 2 or higher) to download IE 8

    Also download another browser (Firefox/ Chrome etc) and try ARRSE on it.
