Have you checked on the NTL Broadband Home Server Status? I find that if my system is slow they quite often report a fault there (sometimes after it is resolved!). If it occurs at specific times of the day (08-00 to 09-00 and 16-00 to 17-30) you may simply be seeing the effect of a lot of people trying to get on the pipe at the same time, it definitely slows things down a lot.

Hi stated by BrianW it may be the amount of traffic but to check ntl statusclick here you might have some spyware on your Hdd. try spybot click here or ad-aware click here both are free and very good. could be good as the first idea if not call ntl 151 and report a suspected fault

hope this helps
