Seattle, Wa
Download Speed: 8858 kbps (1107.3 KB/sec transfer rate)
Upload Speed: 695 kbps (86.9 KB/sec transfer rate)

Have you contacted your ISP about the speed?
It seems the issue is not your system now but the website itself. Is surfing the internet faster then when we started still?
If so then I would say it is the site.
Let's try s another option.
Download and install FoxFire.
Try it on the same site and let me know what happens. Fox is faster then IE and more secure.
If it works then we will have to look at your browser as the problem.

I have and the ISP tech said everything's ok from their side. He reset a router, then suggested to connect directly to modem, but it was even worse, websites couldn't even open. In his opinion there is something wrong with network card drivers. Is there any way I can see that?

I don't think the problem is with websites. When I try to watch videos on youtube or any other site with videos, they play for few seconds, stop, buffer for a while, play again and so on until the end. When I tried to reinstall flash player earlier (from Adobe site), 44Mb was downloaded in 31 min 30 sec, I ran the speed test and download speed was 0,93 Mb/s. And now when I downloaded Mozilla (7.70Mb in almost 8 minutes), absolutely too slow. Oh and the problem remains even with Mozilla.

Oh, I forgot to tell, surfing the internet got back to normal.

Hmmm try reruns TFC and see if that helps.
Also do the following.

Go to Start the to Run
Type in devmgmt.msc and click Enter
Are there any yellow exclamation marks or red X's showing in the list?

Yes, there's one yellow exclamation mark at Other devices (System Interrupt Controller).

Right click on the entry and remove it or uninstall as it is worded.
Reboot and see if it reinstalls on it's own.
Just in case do you have the motherboard drivers disk?
Do you have a Genuine Microsoft XP installation disk?
or do you have a Recovery cd that came with your system?

Ok we will have to figure another way if it comes to needing them. How about the first part of my last post?
Did you uninstall the entry and reboot to see if windows would install it on it's own?

Yup, I have, but the windows didn't install it back on it's own. I don't think it's any better, it seemed at the beggining, so i had to try several videos, but it turned it's pretty much the same.

Then it sounds like a network card.
We have cleaned the system, emptied temp files and cleaned out all the autoruns we can.
Try this...

Go to Start then to Run
Type in chkdsk /r (Notice the space between the k and the /]
Click Enter
This has 5 stages and will take awhile to complete. At times it will appear to stop or even go backwards. Let it complete. Do not stoop it or it could cause problems with your system booting up again.

Let me know if this helps.

What about the missing driver (System Interrupt Controller)? It keeps informing me it's missing?

I tried chkdsk /r, but this popped up. What should I do?

Click Y and then reboot your system for the program to run.
OK on the System Interrupt Controller issue we need to find out what Motherboard you have and then we need to egt the newest Motherboard chipset driver to fix it. Please do the following steps and attach the requested log.

Download SIW from HERE and get the Standalone English version
It will install itself and when finished
Then Click on SIW Icon to run program
On the left side click on the Motherboard directory and then on the right, copy and paste the information in your next reply
