my online Adwords interface is painfully slow this morning while all other sites appear normal.

Adwords Editor seems slow as well.

Didn't the same thing happen last week?

I'm emailing rep.

Anyone else?

Ideas to fix?

Today the online interface is again very very slow. I have to wait about 30 seconds before a page loads. Frustrating...

Other websites are working fine so it is not a problem with my internetconnection.

Dclocks, I have not been hearing this said elsewhere - and this seems to be borne out by the lack of response from others in this rather busy forum who are experiencing the same thing.

In my experience, this sort of thing may respond to some simple 'fixes' such as the following - which are not sequential, by the way:

* Rebooting your computer if your rarely do that. (It astonishes me, sometimes, what this will set right.)

* Closing all your browser windows and opening a new one

* Possibly clearing cache and cookies.

* Not going to AdWords via a book mark - but by opening a new browser window and getting to the login page by typing in the URL

* Trying a different browser.

* Updating your current browser to the most recent version if you are using an older version.

* Trying a different computer if you have one available to you.

I'm having extreme slowness in the Adwords online interface again today as well (had this problem last week too).

AWA, I'll try your suggestions, but they didn't work last week. Eventually last week the problem rectified itself.

Please check with your IT team.

Thanks for the tips! I noticed this tip is working when I encounter a slow online interface. I'm using IE8 and closing the tab and open a new one (instead of closing the whole browser) is also working for me.
