Anyways, it's an AMD 2.2 ghz, 512 ram..however, it is REALLY REALLY REALLY slow when on the internet..My last emachine, which was 5 years old looks like a supercomputer compared to this one!
I know there is alot of software that might be slowing it down, antivirus stuff etc..., but this is really ridiculus!
I mean it took like 1 minute to load this page up on this site..
Could something else be wrong, what can I do?
I notice that the little automatic update yellow shield on the toolbar says its' "downlaoading updates", and has been on 53% for like 10 minutes now..could this be relevant? I tried to turn off those things from automatically updating, to ask first. However I can't click on the shield to open any window.. I click on it and nothing happens.
I also have a laptop (a have a Linksys wireless router) which is on the same cable modem line, and it is fine on the internet, so I know it's not the connection.
For example, I tried to download a video clip on my Desktop, and the rate was around 200 bytes (not kb)..
Then I tried the wireless on the same clip and it was around 20kb..yes i know not that fast either, but in comparison..
So whats the deal, any ideas?
