My laptop is extemely slow when i use the internet. For example simple tasks such as typing, opening web pages takes a long time. Also the browser (and i have tried different ones) becomes unresponsive and the same with the email application (incredimail). Downloading is still relatively quick. The connection to the internet seems fine as we run another netbook from the same connection.
The laptop i use is a VAIO SONY VGN-NS20J on Vista Home with 3G of RAM. Procesor Dual Core T4200 2.0GHz. I run Avast as the anti-virus software.
(I also run adaware which has anti-virus - could this be the problem?)
I regularly run Ccleaner/SlimCleaner and both adaware and spybot
any help would be gratefully appreciated.
