I have a wireless connection that WAS fast. Lately, it's not just slow, but many pages won't open at all..they just sit there blank supposedly trying to load.
All of my virus and spyware programs are up-to-date. I have virus checked, Webroot SpySweeper checked, AdAware checked, Bug Doctor checked, CCleaner checked. And NO PROBLEMS.
But nothing's working like it used to. I don't know what to do next. I ran HijackThis, but I don't know what to do with the log besides save it.
Right now I'm trying to open cooks.com, but we would starve before the page would open to a recipe!
Please help me! :whistling:

When I click on the Prefetch, then Edit and Select all, ALL the folders are highlighted in blue. Does that mean I delete this entire Prefetch thing? I notice that some of the names are of programs that I use, such as Bug Doctor, adAware, etc.
It's safe to delete all of this?

My internet was running slow, so I came here looking for solutions. I went to perfectly as above and right clicked to delete all 60+ files in the folder. Then rebooted. Now my entire computer is running abysmally slow. For instance, I started Maharashtra 27 minutes ago and its still running. Used to take about 7 minutes. I have Windows X P and used verizon food high-speed connection. Help.
