It takes a minute and more to load a site page.
My computer specs:
AMD Athalon 64
200 Drive
1meg Memory
Useing IE 7
DSL Ultra connection
I have been working on this problem for weeks within the malware forum and my computer is clean.
It was suggested by them that I use this forum for help.
Can you help me with this problem?
Thank you,
Legaly Blond

If you go to windows task manager (ctrl+alt+dtl) and click on the "performance" tab, how is your CPU/memory usage at an idle state w/ and w/o IE browser open?

Hi Legaly Blond and welcome to Geeks to Go,

Has your internet always been slow? What are you running (dial up, DSL, Cable, T1)?

Do you know your current upload and download rate from your ISP (Internet Service Provider)? If so what is it?

Please goto Speedtest.net and do a speed test. Please copy your results and post them.

Thank you. :whistling:

Hi again legaly_Blonde

Hope you are still following this topic :blink: I realized that I did you a misjustice by not pointing something out to you while I had you in the malware forum. A member pointed out to me that you are using LimeWire PRO 4.12.3, which is considered a P2P program (short for peer to peer). These programs are not illegal in themselves, but often are used for illegal purposes. Also, since you are connecting directly to another person's computer, you have no idea what you really could be downloading. This is one of the leading causes of infection, and as mentioned earlier, it can be used for illegal purposes.

I highly recommend uninstalling Limewire, as it is a risk and could be the cause of your slowness.

When you are running limewire, other users can and will download directly off of your computer, chewing up a good piece of your bandwidth. Also, downloading will kill a good amount of your bandwidth and will make the internet much slower until you reboot. If you really do not want to give it up, that is completely your choice. :help: However, it may be worth a shot to just not use it for a few days and see if that helps :whistling:

You can always try this site:
http://enhanceie.com/ie/tweaks.asp

and scroll down to "Speed Tweaks"
and click the words in green that say"Increase the Connection Limit"
and download the file.
Then double-click on the file you just downloaded and it will ask you if you are sure you want to add the file to the registry.

Note: You MUST have IE closed when you double-click on this file for this tweak to work
