Off and on all day today, on this site only, google tool bar has been trying to block a pop up ad and when it blocks it, it freezes the webpage and I have to ctrl+alt+delete to get out. It doesn't happen every time I visit the site and it only started today. Anyone else notice this?

I don´t think the problem is your toolbar. Ats is very slow at the moment. I suspect ats might under a lot of stress. Lots of traffic. Or it might be a cyber attack (DOS attack). Not caused by your toolbar or whatever... I think

I´m in Denmark. Maybe the whole of Denmark is under DOS attack... But sometimes it is fast as well. Most of the time today ats-pages have been loading slooooowly for me. But it is not slow all the time...

Try checking for a virus or malware, sounds like some malware issue.

Google Searchbar/ATS works fine for me without performance issues B.T.W.

Same here. I'm running Google Toolbar version 4 (the beta one) and I haven't had any popup or freeze issues whatsoever... I'd definitely recommend a full virus/adware scan.

Yeah that seems a little slow, are you on broadband? Have you checked to see if you are getting slow load speeds with other websites?

I scan all the time with ad aware and I always find bugs after being on ATS. This IS the prob. I scan clear them and come back and it will load but sometimes it locks up again and I have to scan and come back. Stupid Classmates pop ups and such or Smilies.

Anyway....

today_all.php is not slow, it has a lot to process content-wise.

For the ultimate in Adware removal try Microsoft AntiSpyware, to me the best yet and still free.

As I am in the software support side of things for a living, it will help if you can give some details as to the system you are using.

Operating System with any service packs
Internet connection speed
Internet Browser type and version
Also, if you know you are going to surf for an extended perios of time, it is a good idea to close all nonessential programs. Software running in the background can cause a range of issues.
