I have windows xp/broadband/1mb/firefox... for over 3 years never had a problem (well not as bad as this)
Its just been the last week that pages are taking one [bleep] of a
long time to load compared to before..also sites I regulary go to ..I get time out, I have c cleaner and regularly clear my cache out..
I have checked some of your answers in other posts and tried winsock fix..but still didn't help !!
I have ran adware (clear) checked for spyware (seem to be clear) also have zone alarm (basic version) and avg both up to date windows update (also up to date) I have checked with Isp and there does not seem to be a prob in my area.
I have tried shutting down rebooting to no avail...
now here is the crunch about 3 weeks ago someone suggested I use a reg cleaner (all in one cleaner 2.0 trial version)to help clear out some unwanted reg files... I used it once 5 day trial (registry cleaner bit only)and did clear out approx 200 dead or unused files..I did make a back up but the program has finished and everything has gone...yes stupid or what, but hey its done now, although this was a few weeks back It just seems to be slowing down now, could that be the problem.
if you can shed any light that would be great thanx in advance for any help...
Cheers Mr G
