problems viewing buckets

Hello, I have problems viewing buckets. Number one is that I can't actually view buckets from where I'm sitting most of the day,and when I get home I usually get so busy around the property that I completely forget. Number two is that when I do get a chance to check buckets,it takes sooo long for a page to download.(I do have a very new laptop with all the bells and whistles and it doesn't go any faster than my old one).Number three is all the ads and virus potential...So,most of the time,I just get too damned aggravated to fool with it. I actually have a bucket of my own,but I rarely fool with it because of the frustration. I would appreciate any thoughts on this and suggestions on how I could speed up the process.
One more thing I'd like to add is that I appreciate the time and effort that each and every one of you guys put into some nice bucket presentations,so I am not dissing you.But when someone posts "check my bucket" for a possible trade,75 to 80% of the time,I can't,thus missing possible trades. I have a webpage that lists most of my inserts,g/u,autos,and sp's that goes hand in hand with my bucket.So if some one sees something they like,I can usually pull up a link much faster than them checking my bucket.
Like I said,any thoughts on this,any suggestions,or critiques are welcome.Thanks for taking the time to hear me out.Have a great day :)

I use google picasa, as it allows for a caption below the picture without clicking it, and syncs to my folders on my computer.

I hate pulling up photobuckets and not having any names to easily search. I don't want to sort through 800 autos of aubrey huff.

yes,I've seen a couple picasa's including yours.Much nicer than photobucket and less risk of a virus,and those never ending always downloading advertisements that jam up computers. Unfortunately,picasa is blocked from where I'm sitting also.But it's nice to navigate when I'm home....I was just wondering if I'm doing something wrong because I just cannot go thru someone's bucket without it being such a hair pulling experience for me...

What virus protection program are you using? If you are using a free program you get what you pay for.

$30 for virus protection or AVAST for free virus protection which is what I use. I browse using Google Chrome without too many problems.

I have avast...it's not always just a virus problem...it's the ads that take forever and freeze up the computer...Google Chrome and Firefox are good ideas.Thanks

I am wondering if photobucket's set up is a problem in itself

Do you have high speed internet ? Everyone I know that was having problems was using internet explorer. From what I understand windows 10 will have dumped it for something new. If it will be any better I don't know.

yes...it's hi speed,and no,I don't have a problem on other sites except for the "long running scripts" that occasionally arise...
