Speed problem on AO - could it be the AR advert on the right hand side?
AO is fine so long as the Alfa Romeo advert is not visible. Once part of it scrolls onto the screen, AO and indeed my whole PC is very slow to respond to scrolling, mouse clicks, window control icons, switching windows etc. It's made AO unusable unless I make the window quite narrow with the advert off to the right of the visible area of the window.
Looking more closely, I notice from task manager that when the Alfa advert is visible, the CPU resources assigned to iexplore.exe is around 50% for considerable periods of time. Without the advert visible, the problem doesn't exist.
Anybody have any advice on how to fix this? I'm not going to continually adjust window width to work around the problem. Cannot continue with AO like this.
