I don't experience this at all. You've given very little information, but a couple of general ideas that come to mind are:

Scan for malware (malwarebytes)
Try opening IE disabling add-ons (not sure which browser you are using, but see if the issue remains with a different web browser, such as Chrome).
Go to a site like speedtest.net and see if the speeds it gives you are consistent with those promised to you from your ISP.
Run a program such as ccleaner and clean out your reg/temp files.
If you run an anti-virus/spyware program, make experts-exchange.com a Trusted Domain with that program, or do so in your web browser.

If none of those work, then try to give us more information on the problem.

Yes, they're slow.  I wouldn't do any of that unless other sites are also slow.

Well that's weird. EE is not slow at all, it certainly doesn't take 3-10 seconds to open a page; at least not for me. Pages actually open almost instantly for me every time.

Try http://www.uptrends.com/aspx/free-html-site-page-load-check-tool.aspx and compare other sites.  I am not experiencing any slow loads, but you never know.

Sorry to be the voice of truth..... but BUY A NEW COMPUTER and a SUPER FAST INTERNET CONNECTION as websites are FORCING this on users via BLOATSCRIPTS such as JQuery (main culprit) and other MEGA BLOATED SCRIPTS that increase page sizes like crazy to make a site look "nice". This is the norm for design until HTML5 takes on more of the work-around JAVASCRIPT derived BLOATSCRIPT's gruntwork.

Time is money and don't catch yourself behind the 8-ball.

EE seems to be quick sometimes and then slow on other occasions.
Not sure if the cause might be the way I'm viewing the questions / solutions, as sometimes it seems to sit for 5-10-15 seconds when opening in a new tab, (I've tried this from work and home, laptops, different desktops, IE8 / IE9, 2gb - 4gb ram).
Was thinking it might be the way I was viewing the list of questions and answers then either opening directly or even via a new tab, it still seemed to be inconsistent, ie. slight delay.

Nobus; I think there were a few posts when EE changed onto the new layout re delay or performance in using the site, still seems to be delayed depending upon how the view option is set to so am not sure if this is related to anything?

nobus--I have no problems with slowness at E-E.  But I do at one other site.  I found that my HOSTS file was causing some or most of the slowness, so I toggle HOSTS off when I access that other site.

I think some of us said there's no problem on our end.  So there never was a problem with EE itself?

others reported :
Yes , It's seems to be heavy and slow
Yes, they're slow
EE seems to be quick sometimes and then slow on other occasions

so obviously others had the problem also - which has completely disappeared, and it can't be a windows update - because they are ALWAYS OFF

so imo it must be something changed at EE side
