Hi ppl,
not sure if i should post this here or over at the snap internet forum.
I have an unusual problem that has bugged me for a long time. if i try to visit or the page kinda only half loads, meaning most pictures don't load or have the broken logo in them, sometimes the CSS layout is all messed up and the loading page logo in the tab will spin for sometimes hours if i leave it long enough. I use the Google Chrome 5.0 browser on Win 7 64bit.

I have tried opening it in IE8, Opera, Firefox with the same results in fact it does the same on my other computers so I'm not sure if its to do with the computer.

Also tried switching dns, renewing the dns cache, plus multiple guides involving ipconfig stuff, clearing the browser cache, making sure all extensions are disabled turning firewall off, scanned my computer with antivirus and malware software (nothing reported) and still have no joy :-(

would appreciate anyones suggestions on what cause this, really only seems to be these two sites.
thanks in advance!

How about trying a Linux Live CD?    This would tell you if it is Windows related...
