    In the past 2-3 weeks I've been experiencing problems reading these forums.
    When I navigate to the forum the page mostly loads but there is a long lag where I cannot navigate on the page. I do see "waiting for about:blank" at the bottom of the browser window for a second or so. I've seen references on the interwebs regarding a virus and/or trojan associated with this, but this only happens to me on the Tivo Community Forum pages and the virus/trojan definitely has other more virulent symptoms that I'm not experiencing.
    Anyone have any ideas or suggestions?
    Thanks, Xekester

    There are a lot of Flash ads on the pages here. I block Flash content on this site and the pages load much faster.

    Arcady, Thanks for responding. I'm going to take a harder look at one of these.

    Anyone, Are there any other possible solutions to this issue?

    Thanks,
    Xekester

    Len, Thank you for your suggestion.

    For other reasons, I have to use IExplorer.

    Any other suggestions out there?
