Basically you've learnt the lesson that there is really no software that can make a well set-up PC go faster.

Only a faster processor and/or more RAM can do that.

As for the Internet - a faster line-speed will help - but some things are limited by factors outside your control - like how busy the lines are, how good your ISP is, how busy the site you're talking to is, etc.

If you want to speed your internet up you could try OnSpeed (click here), which should boost your connection. It costs £24.99 a year which is about £2 a month, but it doesn't speed up file downloads - it just makes web pages load faster by compressing them first.

Tiscali does an "OnSpeed" equivalent free to subscribers.

But basically it's a question of the Emperor's new clothes.....
