Internet Connection Problems

  Ruksy 18:50 25 Apr 2004

Can anyone help please.

Recently I have been receiving spoof e-mails via my ISP. In addition I have also been receiving duplicate genuine mails (sometimes as many as six of the same message). At the same time my connection has slowed down dramatically, often stalling completely.

After installing Panda Platinum, this did pick up some intrusions and viruses, but did not improve internet speeds.

I now have Panda Platinum and Spybot installed and all seems clear - however internet speeds are still very poor.

I operate W98 and have 13GB hard disk with 380MB of RAM. Planning to upgrade to XP Professional but can't without reliable internet access!!!!!!

Any help would be appreciated
