    Unhappy Slow response in getting to any url
    It seems like my computer has a hard time getting to a url address - it seems to just spin forwever - I have noticed the the url address is not totally highlighted and if I click on it and highlight the whole address the computer responds a little faster (sometimes...) Is there any want to check this process out.

    You may want to try using a third-party DNS service:
