slow progress on internet/ebay

  svet 22:01 28 Dec 2003

i surf the net like most folks out there but recently when i go on to the ebay site my system slows up and takes ages to follow commands.
example:-scrolling down pages using keyboard or mouse.
it always used to be ok but the last couple of weeks its slowed up,

using normal programs like word/excel etc are ok,no problems, just on the net esp ebay does the trouble start.

Try clearing out temp internet files and see if it helps.

but thanks for the comment

Does it take much longer than usual for the initial web page to download?

No,just the normal.The problem is the time the PC takes to respond to any instructions.

Have you checked for spyware and malware?

  svet 18:54 31 Dec 2003

no,but then I don't know what I'm looking for,is this some kind of virus?

To find out more just do a Google search for spyware and malware. You will find lots of free downloads to check your PC and remove 'the stuff'.
I use Ad-Aware from Lavasoft but others are as good.
Not saying that this will fix your problem but it will eliminate something.
