Is it me or do the serps in Google, when you click to visit a website take an absolute eon to redirect?

I click a link and nothing, I wait literally 10-20 even 30 seconds before I get taken to the website?

I don't have this problem in Bing or any other URL, just Google.

Are you experiencing the same problem?

Cheers,
1DMF

Spyware or some sort of plug-in perhaps?

Not AFAIK, fully protected machines, and it happens on ALL of them, be it at work or at home?

Maybe it's the particular searches you're running. You could be experiencing QDS -- query deserves sluggishness.

hmm, it's just normal searches, the serps returns fast enough, it's just when I click the link to visit the page that takes ages.

So much so, I now use Bing as my main SE!

Think I'll do a malware scan just to be on the safe side!

Perhaps you're experiencing the effects of BufferBloat. The Internet Traffic Report has recently shown some absymal performance numbers for Europe although the UK seems to be doing well enough (at this time -- that is a dynamic report).

Last year IBM engineer Jim Gettys coined the expression BufferBloat to describe a gradual degradation in network performance that he feels is accelerating across the Internet.

As best I can understand it, this has to do with how routers are normally configured. There are some built-in inefficiencies that -- as you bring more routers together -- result in lost transmission packets. The packet loss increases as the network grows in size.

Routing technology, as I understand it, was developed after networking protocols were first implemented, so routing is sort of a patch layer built on a much simpler layer.

Frankly, at this point in the discussion I'm in over my head. But I think the gist of Gettys' thinking is that there is a sweet spot somewhere in the mix for how much buffering should be used and if your router buffers too much or too little you end up with packet loss and/or congestion or just a bad network experience.

Right, gotcha, though all we have is the ISP router, our firewall router and the patch panel switch!

However, Jill might have been right!

i did a scan with Sophos, and nothing, so I downloaded Malbytes Malware and it found two infections on every one's machine in the office (ok except 2?) any ways, having cleaned them , it's been running fine.

So either Google fixed something, or it was a nasty doing something, though it begs the question why Sophos didn't stop it infecting us or pick it up on a scan, we are going to get rid of Sophos, not as good as it used to be by a long chalk!

Kind of spooky to realize everyone in your office was leaving footprints in someone else's snow.

It's horrible how malware is so insidious these days and not every product can catch everything. It's like you have to run 3 different things which all just slow up your system too!

well , actually, Malwarebytes didn't find a thing, the two it claimed to find upon closer inspection and investigation were actually false positives.

It saw a couple of registry settings (via group policies) as being a potential virus , the settings I have on GPO stops people using their own screen saver so only the corporate one I programmed via VB Scripting Host runs on all company machines.

Malwarebytes saw this as a potential malware, but is actually perfectly legitimate registry key settings I push out via GPO everytime someone logs onto the company network.

So, I guess there is an issue with G as it still has fluctuations of hanging when a SERPs link is clicked!

What with the auto search filter and the darn popup on hover over SERP lisitng, G! & Bing are getting very annoying to use! and that's not including the crap they return lol.gif
