403 forbidden - sometimes…

I hope there is somebody in here who could give me some advice according to a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"403 forbidden\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” problem.

I have a fresh Magento install with a Fortis theme bought at Themeforest. Everything seems to work fine but sometimes I suddenly get a \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\"403 forbidden\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\” error. The problem occours several times a day - sometimes everything works and a litlle later I suddenly get the 403 forbidden error again. The problem occours most on the category links and some of the footer links.

Have anyone in here experienced the same problem and perhaps have a solution?

I also have another question according to load speed.
As mentioned before my installation is fresh and in the beginning everything was fast loading. Now the load time to the index page is very slow. It takes about 18 seconds to load the frontpage/index first time efter the URL has been typed.
I have tried several things found on the net but nothing seems to work yet. Anyone of you who has found a miracle-solution?

Thanks grin
