I'm running windows xp home, Athlon3200+ 1gig of ram. I'm using BT Broadband 1 Meg, I have a wireless router. The time taken on occassion to logon ie I get waiting for web site to reply, or I'm on my home page and, to switch to say the email page can take 60-90 seconds. :) This is not the case all the time and I'm wondering if the time taken is traffic dependent ie the more people that are on the internet the longer it takes to :tazz: switch pages . Any suggestions. :)

Hi James, I have installed and run on a regular basis Adaware,spybot edwido, stinger, cwshredder cleanup microsoft antispy, btyahoo antispy etc. At the time of responding to your post the internet was back to a normal speed ie 2-3 secs to switch pages. But this is 9 am GMT who knows what it will be like 9pm GMT

if you currently have all thoughs programmes you are going to have to remove some of them because having that many will slow your computer down alone. I would recommend that you just keep microsoft antispyware and maybe spybot, remove the rest and install spyware blaster as thats all that you should need to fight the spyware fight and have only one virus scanner. Also traffic can sometimes have an effect but not to the extreme that you are discribing. Once again if you havn't visted the malware forum please do so as they can help you out a little more then me.
thanx

I highly recommend that you post in the malware removal forum. There are much better tools available than the ones recommended by james_8970.
