I would compare speed at a "speed test" site for a few days, just so that you have your data straight if you need to take this up with your ISP. If you are clearing cookies, temp files etc, understand that your pages will load more slowly because the comp has to download everything again, not call on what was previously cahed. No one needs the default amount of temp files XP allows, but 80 Mbs or so seems to work well for me.
