    Hello. I just installed Shadow Defender last night. I've been noticing that basically every time I enter Shadow Mode browsing the internet can be a pain. When I enter a URL, or press a button, etc. Sometimes it just does nothing. Like it starts to load, but then just stops. Usually I have to refresh 2-4 times before it will load the page. When Shadow Mode is disabled browsing the internet works completely fine. I'm just wondering if anyone has seen similar issues and/or knows how to fix them?

    Not me.

    In fact my experience is the opposite -- for some reason my browser *seems* to zip along faster when I am in Shadow Mode.

    I've been doing some further looking into my problem and it turns out it being in Shadow Mode when the speed was affected was only a coincidence. It seems my ISP is having some issues. Talked to friends who are using the same ISP and they are having the same problems. Any other Wilders members using Rogers ( Canada ) for their ISP having this problem?

    i don't see any relation between being in shadow mode and browsing speed.
