200Gig HD

I am running a BT Voyager 1040 Wireless Desktop Adapter with wireless connection to BT Voyager 2100.

I have no problem with the wireless connection from both my laptop and desktop to the network, however when my desktop is connected wirelessly to the internet, performance drop off considerably, i.e. CPU usage 90%-99%, 600mb - 800mb ram use and the HD is constantly accessed and broadband connection seems very slow.

If connect to the internet via wired ADSL modem, the PC/internet flys’.

My laptop (Pentium M 1.60 GHz/400MHz FSB, 512MB ram & 80gig HD) suffers from none of these issues when connected wirelessly.

What's the problem?
What's the solution?

Thanks in advance.

Well, it sounds like you may be infected. I would suggest going to the Malware Forum, follow the instructions at the top of the page, give your system a scan and post the logs as instructed. A Malware Expert will review your logs and tell you if your system has anything that would be causing this. If they find your system clean, I apologize for a run-around, come back to this forum and we will see what we can do.

Thanks for the swift reply Greazy Mcgeezy. ;)

That was my original thought too, however I scanned my HD and one or two progs were lurking on the drive but these were removed and the problem still persists.? :tazz:
