    I did what LeeG suggested, and still no good.

    So, I took off all the ads, and I realized something. They were added to the ad placement templates in the templates section, as well as the advertising section that comes with vbulletin now.

    My question is, with all the ads being in 2 places, might that have done something?

    Also, which of the 2 is the better places to try and add the ads back to?

    In your cpanel, go down to logs
    The two you want to look at are
    Choose Log Programs and Raw Access Log
    In choose log programs, un tick any of the logs programs that are running
    In Raw Access Logs, disable Archive logs in your home directory

    I found through my own experience that archiving logs can add a lot of extra server resources usage

    I did a bit of trouble shooting on my own server over the weekend.
    Turning off any stats and logs programs in cpanel has freed up a lot of cpu and memory
    In my own case, 60% reduction in memory usage and Im averaging about 75% less cpu load
    How do you do that in cpanel?

    I have the business package with hostgator.com

    Is there a way to correct it without taking all of the adbrite ads off?

    I believe this is actually some issue with firefox. Today, I have been doing testing in ff, ie, and chrome, because I have been doing updates etc on all of my sites, so have to test things out.

    Anyways, in IE, it only took make 5 seconds for the site fully to load in IE...

    Where do I pull that information from?

    Never really had any issue with it until recently.

    Also, my host is hostgator.com and out of 6 providers, they are the only ones who know what they are doing, except for the host before them, that went out of business.

    I checked all of the links in your sig and all of them load in about a second. Not bad.
    When you have these slow load times is it a consistant time of day? Are you on shared hosting with all the sites? How many people are on when you notice the slow down? Including bots and other guests. What type of internet access are you using at the time you notice the slow downs?
    As for your host telling you for them the sites load in a second, of course it will for them. They are sitting at terminals hardwired to the server network.
    No, it happens any time of the day. Just the forums at forums.millenniumcapitalcorp.com that does it.

    Yea, I believe it is shared hosting. It is the business account with hostgator.com

    Not sure how many people are viewing the site.

    I have fios internet through verizon. 15up and 5 down, I think it is.

    Yeah, that is true. I know anything for them, unless something is producing an error will show at lightening speeds.

    I don't mean to fuss, but this is really beginning to irritate me.

    I went to this link after searching on Google.com to find a way to speed up my forums. I followed everything on this link, EXCEPT for one, because I could not find it.

    Thinking it would help, but sadly no. So, I don't get it. I realize that the ads might have a part in it, but the other forum I am on, has the same ads, plus tons more, and runs great. No slow time.
