Slow Web Page downloads

XP File System BFTS Free space 173GB Total size 186GB Orange Broadband

Am experiencing problems with web page downloads.
They are taking an age to come through. Have done as much as I can - run all antispayware (AdaWare AVG Spybot, Scan Disk, Defraged, ran M/s for disk errors etc (no problems on that) cleared out TMP Files, Cookies and off loaded some pictures etc and went back a week on restore.

Having done all the above desk top loads VERY quickly! My problems start when I connect the ISP which works fine. I could not get Orange page to download so re-set to Google no problems.
When I try to connect to sites i.e. click here this took 6 mins to come through. Then to get this far another 4 - see the problem?

Have spoken to Orange (wishey washey response that they could (note could) be working on the site) what for 3 days?

Any thoughts before I contact them again. Have not downloaded anything new. Help Ankermi who knows nothing but is trying hard to learn!

Hi Guys
Sorry forgot to mention have also disabled the Phising Filter in Internet Explorer - no help either.

Are you canneting through a router and is it a wireless connection?

Thanks for your prompt replies.

I use a straightforward Broadband connection - computer to telephone line.

Only have 4 add-ons, Diagnosis Connection Problems, Adobe Reader, Windows Messenger and Sun Java.

Since going off to lunch I have now re-connected and it seems to be working ok. Either I have managed to do something with "its works" or 0range have peeled the orange giving me fresh juice!

Will leave subject open for 24 hours

Many thanks once again.
