Does your computer act up or run slow after being on Cafe Mom?

I run a cleaner on my computer after being online, & that seems to help- but if I am on for over 30 minutes, it starts to run slow again- so I have to sign off & run the cleaner again. Does that happen to you too? Or is it just my computer?

  • Quite often it happens to me too..and I don't know why. Here lately it hasnt been as bad as it had been but a few was horrible, it drove me insane.I think its some of the applications on here that causes it or something..or when they make changes to the site..I don't know..I'm not very computer savvy..other than to turn it on,lol.

  • Actually, not so much no. But I've found opening my local newspaper's website is as slow as if I were back on 33.6 dialup. It makes me wonder how much extraneous (or malicious!) code they have in the background?

  • Are you guys blocking the ads.... Cafe mom is super slow if you allow the flash active content ads.... If you run FireFox (and I think everyone should) get the AdBlock Plus add-on. It blocks all ads on the web. I've never had an issue on CafeMom with slowness and I used to be on dialup.

  • Cafemom runs extremely slow compared to other websites. I've never had it affect the rest of my computer though. It can be very frustrating.

  • Yes but I don't know if it's just cafemom or just that my computer needs a good overall. I run my cleaner all the time
