Slow Internet with VISTA

  bmsky101 09:40 22 Mar 2007

I have just bought a new Dell computer with Vista on. I was with Tiscali and have had to buy a router in order to get connected to the Internet.
Anyway, having managed this, I now find that my Internet is really slow and websites are taking an age to download. This was not the case with my old computer. I'm not sure whether this is due to the new computer, Vista, my Internet settings or what. Any advice much appreciated.

turning your phishing filter off or changing the settings of it.

Do you also have McAfee? If so they use a phishing filter and it has been know to slow things down to a crawl.

If you have try disabling the McAfee one first.
