    Default Whenever I try to read "The Independent" UK newspaper I get "Not Responding"

    this is not just occasionally. I use Firefox and get this ever single day, for months! Thought that it might be Firefox, then after a very short while found it also happens on the "Edge" and "Internet Explorer". It may be something to do with the fact that this newspaper no longer has a print edition, and now can only be accessed on line. I persevere, because it reports news particularly well and has reports on the Middle East from Robert Fisk, who is much more unbiased and reliable.

    I do notice that I get less of the "Not Responding" if I go particularly slowly, so may be tied in with downloading speed. However, since it is now solely internet based you would not think of that as a possible problem. Tearing my hair out, and I don't have much left!!

    Seems OK for me, crisp and rapid response using Firefox and ADSL2. So it is probably something to do with your particular set up.

    No trouble here on Opera with their Webpage

    Do you get on-line subscription of the Independent?

    Working Ok here as well.

    Have you tried cleaning out your temp internet files, with something like Ccleaner ? If not it could be trying to load old pages.

    You can also try this, open a CMD, type in ping www.independent.co.uk <Press Enter>

    You should get a steady response with a IP address of 151.101.129.184

    Lawrence - I must confess that I read it for free ( I have made a contribution once recently to The Guardian)

    wainuitech - Have just used CCleaner and cleared out 5.9Gigs. Since my SSD drive is only using 106Gigs at present, with 116Gigs free, I had not bothered too much until now. However it has not fixed the problem.
    I have done the ping thing, it flashes by very quickly and the window disappears before I can read everything. However by running it about 12-14 times have noticed that it pings similar to yours three times, each go. Cannot read the stats at the bottom before the window disappears.

    Okay -- That CMD box should stay open until you manually close it ( or type in exit) looks like you may have some sort of corruption. Assuming this is W10, (I'll copy paste from another thread I just replied to) Lazy eh

    From search, type in CMD right click the result /run as administrator. Type in sfc /scannow <Press enter key>

    Then run this DISM command. DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth it will take a while to run and often appears to stop at 20% just leave it, it will finish on its own.

    Misty, open Run, type in CMD, once the box appears paste in "ping www.independent.co.uk" without semi-collon, hit 'Enter'

    Did you do a restart after running c-cleaner? run c-cleaner again and see what happens

    Are you running the latest Firefox build?

    Something to try ,Download another Firefox Browser so you have 2 of them(leave it clean) just to see if a add on or something else is causing a problem

    See if the www.independent.co.uk loads on the new build
