I have an Acer 1350 laptop running 2600+Athlon XP, using XP professional, using Mozilla browser. Was fine until last week when command com disappeared and would not boot.
I used restore discs and reloaded XP. Firstly Boot sequence was wrong as it interrogated network card, but I have altered that under Setup & its OK now.
But access to internet is now very slow and the browser will not find a web page (any) unless at least 3 attempts are made.
It sometimes also launches IE 6, again three times at the beginning of an internet session.
I have scanned for viruses - using Stinger and AVG - and none were found.
I have deleted and reinstalled the dial up connection as well as pinging the server (which it did fine)
I am using Onetel as my ISP
Any suggestions, please
