PC at snails pace

  digitaldilema 19:12 20 Aug 2003

Can anyone help! it has just taken me 20 minutes to get onto this site. Every site i now try to visit comes up with cannot find server. It used to be really fast, but now it's so frustrating. I have a Packard Bell iconnect 800 mhz pc with 250mg ram a 20 gb hard drive, windows xp installed and NTL broadband at 150mb. I have tried a system restore going back to when i know it was fast, but even then it was as it is now. It is driving me nuts, i am losing patience with it and patience is something i lack. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Ad-aware from click here

Spybot from click here

install then update before running these.

Sounds as if your puter is clogged down with spyware ans ad ware.

Mine is exactly the same, I have NTL 1 meg and I was beginning to think it was my modem at fault.
Anyway I rang NTL and their server seems to have been having problems for the last few days.

jimv7, i have downloaded both your recommendations, adaware found 96 whatever they are it finds and deleted them.It does seem alittle faster, but maybe it's as jojo_1 says and it's NTL's server. I will have to bide my time, i think i'll watch the film at 9.00pm instead. Thanks for your help jimv7 and jojo_1.
