Is there anything wrong with POE?

**Please support PoE by booking your England accommodation - thank you**

I have been having a devil of a time just getting onto POE today. Like you Peter, it seems to be only on POE that I am experiencing the problem. It's taking forever for a page to load.

Hi Michael. There are no worms, trojans,bugs or viruses. I have used 4 programs to search them out and none found. All programs and files are checked as they are downloaded as well. I am at a loss. Lol

I have discovered it is a fault with Google. Dont know why it only affects POE,but I have somehow managed to speed it up a bit. Still takes a few minutes to get into my larger photo files,but at least I can at the moment. I dont even use Google to get into POE,so why it slows POE down I have no idea.

Hmmm, interesting Peter, someone told me the same thing. I thought they were loony but apparently not! Glad to know it's not POE, but it's still a nuisance isn't it?

BTW: Hiya Peter!Kiss

That' weird, Peter.  I heard on the radio the other day that Google's developed some software that has artificial intelligence - it can reason and learn.  Sounds like something out of science fiction.  (nervous) lol

Here's Google's AI - her name's CADIE.  Maybe she's the culprit, Peter.

Hi all. I use Firefox and msn. Google is tied in with both of them. If you use Firefox click on Tools,then Error Console. I did and got nearly 100 warnings and messages. All saying Google cant acces picturesofengland.com for one reason or another. I mucked about with the settings a bit and can now open my large files even if it is slow. Please dont ask me what I did because I dont know,but it worked sort of.

The only thing other than finding a browser that dont use Google is, maybe, disabeling the Google tool bar,or taking it out all together.

Let me know if you find the same on you browsers.
