    After editing one of my hubs, I noticed that it took forever to load and watched to see what it was waiting for, and i.betrad.com showed up.  I couldn't find too much about it while searching.  But one post associated it with malware.  I finally had to escape and try again, and the page loaded fine, and the site address didn't show up while loading.  Has anyone else had this issue or know anything about this server?

      @rebekahELLE I'm not sure about that specific domain, but it could have come from an ad that loaded.
      The malware warning could have been in error as well or just temporary.
      If you run into it again, let us know an example Hub and we can look into it.
      Many times it is hard to track down if it is indeed related to an ad as it is sometimes hard to get the same ad served.

        Thanks Matthew. It probably was ad related.  I'll let you know if it shows up again.  I did not specifically get a malware warning, it just left the page hanging waiting for that site to load.

        I just clicked on the same hub and the address showed up again while I was watching the pages being read, transferred, etc.  But there is no malware warning

    If you look up that site on Google it explains what it is and what the site does.

      Relache, I missed you and your "let me google it for you" replies.

    relache, I did a google search and read most of the results.  My question pertains to why it is slowing up the loading of a page, as I found other search results with the same complaint with no real clear answers.  If an advertiser is using it, it's not to a sites benefit if it takes so long to load or leaves a page hanging.

    In case others may experience this problem, I did find this google advisory info.

    The two host networks that it directs to have reported malware activity in the last 90 days, the most recent being today.  http://www.google.com/safebrowsing/diag … e=AS:14618

    What browser do you use? We need to see if this happens to others. I will check mine. Thanks for posting.

    I'm using the latest Firefox on a Mac.   I checked it again, and I didn't see it or have the issue.  I also checked it on Safari and it was fine. It also loaded faster on Safari.

    I don't see it with Firefox 11. I hope it's gone.
