Slow loading website problems


I don't know if anyone can shed any light on this, but I am trying to maintain a website and I would say about 98% of it loads. The problem is that the remaining 2% has really important information that allows me to log onto the site that is on the bottom. It just hangs and says "read i4.ytimg" or "transferring i4.ytimg".

Hi morfytastic - thanks for your input!

I was hoping that you could clarify - does this mean that the problem is on my computer? I know that others are having the same problem with the page loading.
