I am experiencing a slowing down of my system when online. DEll 2400 dimension XP service pack 2 Celeron 2.40 GHz 1.00Gb Ram local disc (c) 34.4 Gb 16GB used 18Gb free
I have ran cc cleaner , registry mechanic , disk keeper , spyware doctor.
When I first access web the CPU usage soars to 100% due to CCAPP.EXE ... LuBackProxy etc ( Norton system ) after a few minutes when they have done their stuff the CPU usage falls back to aroud 15 to 25% even when opening new pages on internet but they are taking too long to open up considering that the CPU is not crammed.
Any suggestions. I am considering removing programs such as The Sims ( daughters not mine ) to see if that would help as they collectively use 5500Mb. Do you think that this would help or do they ony use the system when they are running ?
Have you checked your broadband speed? I use this one, click here . I'd also recommend the free versions of AVG antispyware and superantispyware and also asquared. Just google for the apps incase you have some hidden malware.
My friend use to be on Tiscali and after a while found a deteration in the service they provided and wasn`t at all happy with them. In the end he got rid and has always advised me to stay away from tiscali. Hes with Virgin media as I am too and so far have been very happy with the connection and the customer service they provided for me.
I would phone your ISP and explain that your BB speed is somewhat lacking to that advertised by them. Make sure you're in front of the PC, when you phone, so that they can instruct you of any tests they need to do to believe you. Your speeds are abysmal as Batch says. Good luck.
