Chrome pages slow to open -- or disappear -- with Kamo installed


Recommended Posts

Couldn't find this specific issue in here, thought I'd post it and maybe get an answer.

Re-upped my subscription to CCleaner the other day, took advantage of the option to add Speccy / Defraggler / Kamo to test drive them.

Since installing all of them, pages in Chrome have been very slow to open. I have Chrome open with a half-dozen tabs... and it takes forever to open them now. Same holds true for new tabs I open with other programs.

I've tried whitelisting the main ones in the Kamo Settings menu, no effect.

And, for some reason, I cannot get newegg.com to display at all. The page loads... displays for a couple of seconds... and then goes blank.

I uninstalled Kamo, and the problems disappeared. How can I get the best of both worlds -- Kamo to help protect my online presence, but still be able to have web pages load quickly / at all. 

Any help is appreciated.

That's reassuring, db702. Good to know it wasn't a hallucination.

Contacted their support, got pretty much no help. "Are you using a VPN? No?  Must be some extension, then..."

Was hoping their support might know something... or at least want to work with me on finding a solution."

Hi. I was able to replicate this problem with Newegg.com, even when configuring the "Allow" option under the "Anti-tracking > Website tracking" feature of Kamo, and when adding Newegg.com to the "Whitelisted websites" area of the program; I've reported this issue to our development team so they can work on getting this resolved.

@bemused59 As Kamo does its work to intercept tracking attempts and change the attributes, it typically has an imperceptible impact on speed. However, pages that are running a significant amount of trackers may have a noticeable slower load times — usually not to the detriment of web usability or experience, but it can be noticed.

One of our senior support agents would be happy to investigate further and/or provide some additional suggestions; do they have permission to contact you via email, using the same address that is registered to your forums account?

Hello, I'm experiencing exactly the same. Last week, right after installing the same renewall package with Speccy, Defraggler,  Kamo and Recuva, anything I browse or open using  Chrome as a browser has gone unbelievably slow.. reminds me of the telephone modem days. I like classsic things but this truly makes me wanto to de-install everything. 

I also run a paid AVG antivirus version, didn't speed life up either, but have accepted this hesitantly. I haven't yet de-installed Kamo to see the difference but did think this part of the installation was the culprit. Tried the newegg.com page just to try and won't open either.

Using Edge Chromium i experience the normal browsing/flicking speed I'm used to.

Since the CC cleaner package, Kamo at least, does not seem to like having relations with Google Chrome, is it better advised to not use them together? It would mean not using the CCcleaner product(s) because I prefer using Crome.

Quite disappointed after purchassing this package.

 

Thanks in advance for replies, advice

Hi @Camperman First of all, I am very sorry to hear about how this is happening.

As Kamo is designed to intercept tracking attempts, websites that are configured with a significant amount of trackers may have a noticeable slower load times.

Our support team would like to investigate this further. Do they have permission to contact you via email, using the same address registered to your forums account?

MeganCCleaner... I hope your support team provides Camperman better answers than I got when I first contacted them, months ago (see original post on this thread). Who knows? Maybe they've learned something since March...?

Hello MeganCCleaner, yes they can, please. Bare with would i not respond right away since GMT+2 here.

I understand how Kamo performs it's duty but this would quite likely stun you. I have to wonder wether anyone at CCleaner has simply tried it for themselves, easily done. I appreciate slightly lesser performance due to thorough scanning/protecting etc. but not 10-20 seconds to fully load a page, foto etc.. browsing on Google Chrome? 

But as said I'm open to support?contact if only it concludes something to help me decide on keeping Kamo running and helps others experiencing the same/scimilar problems.
