Post a pit test and let us take a look. Also do a few basic cleanups and scans.

 

 

First download CleanUp and cleanup all the temp files.

 

Your Spybot Search and Destroy should be version 1.3.1TX, if not,

Please download, update and run this.

Install this one first, then install the #2 Spybot Download

Your Lavasoft Ad-Aware should be Ad-Aware SE Personal Edition build 105, if not Please down it from the link given below.

Also download the VX2 Cleaner plug-in and run it.

I fixed that link in your profile:

So I guess you meant your Internet connection is slow?

 

First thing I would do is get rid of all the background programs to see if they are using up bandwidth or otherwise interfering. In particular I am wondering about PromptCast and ForresterPanel, what they do, and how much bandwidth they might use.

 

 

Also, you should strongly consider adding another 256MB of memory.

:) Thanks guys for replying. Porthos, I downloaded the new version of Ad-aware, installed and ran the VX2 cleaner. I was fine. My Spybot was ok, I had no trojans or virus. Thanks for all the links. Dave, thanks for fixing my link. I did get rid of Promptcast though. I have been thinking about getting more memory. What is the price range of another 256MB of memory? :santagrin:
