PC Slowed Down

  Duncanf 12:05 13 Oct 2006

For some reason, suddenly it's taking a long time (30secs and more) to get 'Google' Page to appear when I click Internet Explorer. It normally has been instantaneous. Also other web pages are taking much longer than yesterday. I haven't added any software or done anything unusual that I'm aware of. I am Windows XP Pro and have 1Gb memory installed.

Internet speeds will vary according to many things including how many people are online at the time, the more people online the slower it gets. Suggest you try disconnecting and reconnecting a couple of times and perhaps try it a bit later and see if its the same.

Thank you for your suggestion. Perhaps that is the reason. It took over 2 minutes to refresh the PC Advisor Helproom page just now when previously it has been immediate.
Thanks again.

Sorry, buteman...been away from PC. No, I'm not NTL. I'm Orange and this is the worst I've ever seen this. It's taking ages to get any page loaded.

I am with B.T. and get much the same sort of problem trouble is that it is so erratic that I can`t put it down to anything but B.T. and their line speed etc.

Thank you Fruit Bat /\0/\ and Cymro.
I feel a bit better now! Probably not my fault after all! I'll assume this is resolved.
