Is there a reason my guide is so painfully slow?

Whenever I hit the middle jewel button, the guide is slow to come up. It is even slower if heaven forbid I want to navigate to my friend's list, create a party, and invite a friend. I thought this was just MSes s***ty service, but when I was at my friend's house, his guide opened instantly, and he was able to breeze through it. My xbox is old, and I think it may have to do with caching, but if that's not the case I have no freaking clue what the problem is.

Xbax bord halp pls

When's the last time you cleared your cache?

I like how the GameFAQs spellcheck shows that the word "Wii" is fine, but the words "Xbox" and "Kinect" show up as typos.

I have this same problem and when I upgraded my Internet it only marginally improved the problem.

Clear your Cache. Then remove and download your gamer profile again to get rid of excess dead data/info.

Nothing important to say here.

If you're gonna delete and redownload your profile, its worth noting that it will ask you if you want to delete profile only or profile and all items. Its important to choose the Delete Profile Only option. Otherwise, you'll lose all your save files, which I'm sure isn't what you want.

Also, its important that you know the email address that's associated with your gamertag, along with the password for that address. That's the only way you'll be able to redownload your gamertag (if you choose to delete and redownload your profile).

Sadly, this shouldn't need to be said because anyone with reading comprehension will see what they are about to do, but at the same time, it does need to be said. People will still just mash buttons like hyperactive 10 year olds and not read what they are doing.



On a side note though...

I still get some lag on the guide. Nothing major though. The dashboard on the other hand is very slow. Takes like 15 seconds just to load the main screen, and if I want to browse the marketplace, another 15 seconds. I clear my cache every month roughly, and recently deleted my profile and redownloaded it cutting the file size from 50+ MB down to 10 MB and still get the sluggish dashboard.
