Since a week or two ago my internet access has slowed down a lot I have noticed that my 'a' Avast icon (I have Avast 4.8) on my toolbar constantly turns and it takes ages to refresh or get an internet page. I have also noticed that when I close a Window all of my on screen icons go and then gradually reappear on the screen I have not installed any new programs apart from Windows XP updates Any ideas of why my internet connection show be so slow now or maybe should I get another antivirus ? Thanks for any ideas
Everyone having different problems with it.May be better just searching the recent threads on PCA and see if you can find someone with the same problem.Maybe try an System restore to a date before the Microsoft update.
Have checked each of my configurations which are ok I believe. My ISP connection is ok but just very slow....the Avast Icon seems to turn on when I try and access a Internet site....never used to do that much as you say maybe when it was looking for an update Now it turns on lots !! Any ideas ?
