In the last few days my internet connection has become really slow and I'm not sure why. I have a 1 meg Cable connection to an external Motorola SB4100 modem, connected via USB to my motherboard.
As of last week everything was fine with it - regular speed checks at www.zensupport.co.uk/tools.aspx would show me getting about 900+ kbps on average. Now I seldom peek above 200 kbps.
I have Norton Internet Security 2005 installed and active and I have ran spybot 1.4, ms antispyware, adaware 6, cleanup! and registry mechanic this week. Spybot removed some threats like adclick and adaware got rid of any cookies but I am still running slow. According to the software I use, I'm clean....
I even ran these in Safe Mode to be sure. What is alarming me though is that I can see that my external modem "activity" light is on when I am in Safe Mode when I know it never used to do this. Does anyone know how I can fix this please?
