Ages to d/load attachments. Internet ok

  tonyx1302 22:37 12 Dec 2008

In the last few days I have received Utube/ video and Powerpoint attachments of 2.3 MB or so that used to take 10secs to download but now take 10-15mins plus. My d/lspeeds are a regular 6-7mb and I can still open websites very quickly. I have tried every cleanup/antivirus/malaware reg cleaner avail. but no joy. It has only happened in the last 2/3 days and I haven't installed anything other than M/soft updates. I have gone back with restore.No luck
Any thoughts please. Windows Xp with SP2 and Talk talk BB

Thank you

PS it may be uTube thats the Problem, It will only download as fast as they let you have the file

Morning woodchip and sorry for the delay in responding to your replies. I don't think I explained myself very well and I just used Utube as an example. I can open and run the Utube site very fast. The problem is if someone send me an email with attachment that is a Powerpoint or video clip etc it takes 15mins to download. I had three emails morning with with attachments....1973Kb ".2Mb & 2.3Mb and in the end I gave up trying to open them as it took sio long.
