My computer can browse web pages reasonably fast for the modem (56KBps Hayes voice/fax), but after around thirty minutes it practically stops loading pages altogether.Help!

Try clearing your cache. In IE, Tools/Internet Options, Delete files.

Yes ross_99 i advise you to firstly purge your internet cache & i also doubt that you are trying to d/l while browsing the internet as you only have 56k. Also i assume you are not running with a pirated version of windows (check for the sticker, lol) as if you are & you have recently installed a service pack this may cause problems with your internet explorer. Failing this i advise you to get a broadband connection.

If you have more than one window open then this will slow your loading down considerably.
