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.
