go to start>>run and type in the word "msconfig" and go to the startup tab. There will be a list there. Uncheck the items that you don't need any more. That should help you on start-up.

Is your cable modem connected to a wireless router, and your computer connected to that router via an adaptor?

Whether it is or not, check your CPU usage while using the internet by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete at the same time. You should see the CPU usage at the bottom of the window that appears. Let me know what it stays around while surfing.

Download Process Explorer from Sysinternals
http://www.sysintern...ssexplorer.html

Extract and run it. Go to VIEW > SHOW Fractional CPU usage
Make sure it is checked.

Look in the CPU column and relate what is consuming your CPU

If you can, a screencapture would be useful.

It looks good to me. Let's move on.

Download and install Mozilla Firefox

Use Mozilla Firefox to surf the web, instead of Internet Explorer.

Let me know if the internet is just as slow when using FireFox, or if it is much better that when you were using Internet Explorer.

I see...

We here at GeeksToGo will not assist you with issues relating to P2P file sharing programs. While many of these programs are-in-and of themselves legal, most things acquired by their use are not. Instead of attempting to differentiate between the legal use of P2P programs and the illegal use thereof, we have decided to stop helping with issues regarding this software. It is also in your best interest to know that many P2P software packages come bundled with spyware/malware/virii and that their use greatly increases the chances of your computer becoming infected. I strongly suggest that you uninstall these programs and refrain from using them at all costs.

This thread has been reported to the Moderating Staff and should be closed shortly. Do not respond to this thread until given further notice.

Hi BS:

As computerwhiz said, we don't help with P2P problems. If you want to uninstall them and the problem persists, we would be more than happy to continue assisting you with this problem if it is still existent.

P2P programs bring a slew of problems and you should think about getting rid of them. :whistling:

The downloading of music through your P2P programs though may have infected something that is prohibiting you from downloading at a normal speed. It's really difficult to diagnose, though. The P2P programs are like a magnet for attracting gunk.
