No, I'm using dial up.

Another problem I'm having is, When I click on a topic or double ckick, nothing happens. Sometimes I have to repeat clicking 2 or 3 times before the page changes.
Thank-You

Sharing dial up wouldn't work well, especially with games involved

Are these topics on this site or every site

All sites. Doesn't happen all the time. When it does happen I may have to click two or three times before my page changes. Could the mouse be going? Anyway I could check this out?

If you google line speed test you can bookmark some sites then test the connection when it starts to play up, you need sites for your location so the results are accurate

Run them every couple of hours and you may notice a pattern at a particular time of day, say 6 - 9 pm when it takes longer to load pages

Run through this as well then see how it is

When Windows has loaded, click start, all programmes, accessories, system tools, system information, tools then run system file checker and replace any files it asks for from the 98SE CD then reboot.

When it has loaded to the desktop, click start, programmes accessories, system tools to run disc clean up, then run disc defragmenter from system tools

Download, install and run Tune Up 2006 Trial

[color="#3333FF"]Run Tune Up disc clean up

Run Tune Up registry clean up

Click Optimize and Improve to run Reg Defrag, the screen will lose colour during the process which can take a few minutes and then needs a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to optimize the computer, select computer with an internet connection from the drop down menu, this also requires a reboot

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to accelerate downloads, select the speed just above your actual connection speed, this requires a reboot.

After the reboot, click optimize then system optimizer to run system advisor
