Why is every move slow to appear? Why is there a whirring noise?

  1. Every word I type is slow to appear. My computer has a whooshing noise only when I am in WordPress.com Scrolling is very slow. HELP!

  2. That sounds like an issue at your end to me. Have you run a full computer scan recently?

    (1) How are are connecting to the internet and to WordPress.com?

    I'm asking because the way you connect to the internet (mobile, satellite, DSL, dial-up) and to your blog, and how many proxy server jumps etc. it takes to connect can cause problems. There maybe be problems with your ISP and/or with the proxy servers. Also note that the main dashboard isn’t designed to work with touch devices through the tablet and smartphone browsers.

    (2) Exactly which browser and version of it are you using. If you don’t know click here to find out > http://whatsmyuseragent.com/
    Note: If you are running IE9 in compatibility mode then be aware that it renders as IE7 and IE7 is not supported.

    (3) Have you tried?
