Hi,
I am on high speed dsl right now, and for the past week or so, my internet is running extremely slow. what i mean is that to load a web page, it takes alot longer than its supposed to, for example, the google homepage takes about 5-10 sec to load fully when it's supposed to take about 2 sec. it has become extremely slow since the last week, and im wondering if theres something that is hurting my connection.
thanks in advance :whistling:

cheers

Have you tried clearing your browser cookies and cache? And also what isp are you with? What speeds are you supposed to be getting? Once you get your speeds, go to Speakeasy...Run a speed test and then post the results

Hi shinakuma9, what do you have for Anti-Spyware or Anti-Virus programs? What also do you have for a Firewall? If you do not have anything you can look below in my goodies and I have a couple of good programs for use. But let me know what you have. Thanks
