My laptop was working fine until I took it to my friends house in Hull. I had to use the Hull based , Karoo ISP . The connection was slow & everything became rediculously slow ! I am now back to my usual home address & using Tiscali, which was fine until the trip to Hull. Things are now just so slow ! In particular - simply updating AVG takes @ 5 minutes (used to be @ 1 minute) I have carried out all scans & removed all nasties that were found , any more ideas please ?? Thankx.

It does not like where you moved to. Why not talk to it to see whats bothering it

Were they on before you went to Hull?
What nasties and did you also clear System restore in case they reside there as well?

They can return if system restore is not temporily turned off.

Rescan?

Try running TCP Optimizer, it could be that Karoo changed some settings that your usual ISP does not like.

I used TCP Optimizer and got a much faster connection.
