hi guys,
my name is Pete, i live in Cyprus, originally from Manchester UK.
around 3 months ago i was given a second PC by my mother in law, so i set it up next to my PC so my wife and i can surf together. i set up the PC { but not to the printer to share because i am not that knowledgeable about how to }then connected it to the router {Thomson 585 v6 supplied by cytanet my isp} that day it was great both pcs were running just fine we only have 2gb download speed broadband but even so even if we were both on you tube the quality of the two pcs were good. Then when we switched both pcs on the next day, they were both so slow, and if we went on you tube together {forget it } they both just froze.
i have been trying to figure this out now for months, i have {probably stupidly} been using advice/tips from you tube about how to solve the problem, and although it hasn't got better it hasn't got any worse either.
i have done the temp file emptying, malware checks virus. i have nearly 190gb of free space but when i am online {i use Firefox} pages just hang for ages, sometimes if i refresh the pages they will load, other times they just take for ever.
before i could open 5-6-7 pages in new tabs with no problems now it wont even do 2.

any advice would be greatly appreciated . althogh i have had a pc for years i am still a novice when it comes to knowing what/how they work.

i look forward to any replys.

regards

peter
