Miruvor's advice is good, I used to find using my system monitor (under sytem tools under accessories), that my CPU was running at 100% and I wasn't running any programs. I installed ad-aware and 'spybot search and destroy' each of which I run weekly and I seldom find that problem anymore. I am also using the AVG 7.0 Plus Firewall that scans my computer daily for viruses rather than just once a week like Symantec's Norton did. Now if I could just get a good SPAM blocker to get rid of all the pharmaceutical and replica watch ads.
I still find sometimes P-T can't be reached once in a while during a session, like it did Saturday afternoon my time, first thing Sunday morning GMT/UTC, at which times after I get out of the browser (Mozilla Firefox) and then go back in, and if P-T still isn't there, I call it a day and try again the next day. My frustration quotion is only so high, I can only take so much
Anyway good luck with your problem. Oh I have broadband which means I normally only have to wait for a few seconds for a page to load, when I don't have to wait for P-T to answer its phone. :elfbiggrin:
