Any ideas as to how to make my pc run a bit faster as it is running so slow at the mo.As far as i know i don't have a virus ,i run Avg twice a week. Done all the defragment bit but it's still the same.It seems to take ages to load a page now.I got a 1.5 connection with Ntl.
Any ideas please.

Hi Buchan 35. This is all new to me. What is os and what other details do you require?

Hi Derries,

Here's a very useful program click here called Win Speed Up that has automatic features that you don't have to be an expert to run. It's free and when I used it on my Win98SE machine it made a noticeable difference.

We need to know your OS (Operating System e.g. Windows XP Pro), Your ISP (Internet Service Provider e.g. AOL) and firewalls on your system....

Some of the info isn't needed, but it will help us rule out the normal problems...

Hi Mattyc. My oprating system is Windows xp,the provider Ntl and i run Zone Alarm as my firewall.The firewall is set at Medium.

There's also Ashampoo Internet Accelerator available as a free download from various sites, including this mag I believe, but if not, from Computeractive Downloads or from click here and possibly from click here or click here. Give it a try.

Have to tried creating a new User Account to see if this is a "ssytem wide" problem, or if it is just restricted to your account??

Thank you Griffon 56 i will give it a try.
