The quickest thing to try is using a different browser. Please access the web site using Internet Explorer, or if you are already using that browser, try a different one such as Mozilla Firefox or Google Chrome.
If that does not resolve the issue, please try clearing your browser cache. Links to instructions for some major browsers are included below:

Using Google Public DNS
The issue that you are reporting may also be due to a problem with the DNS provided by your Internet Service Provider (ISP). Please try the steps in the following link to override your current DNS settings and use Google's Public DNS.
Once done, please follow the steps below to clear the DNS cache.
- Press and hold the Windows key and press the R key. This should bring up the "Run" dialogue box.
- In that box, type "cmd"" without the quotes, and click the "OK" button. A DOS window should open.
- Enter the following command below and press enter: ipconfig /flushdns
This should clear your DNS cache. You may need to perform this command a few times.
If this resolved the issue, you will need to contact your ISP in order to have the issue resolved. Using a DNS that is not provided by your ISP may lead to slow connection issues.
