SP2 and Slow Browsing

  [email protected]© 16:38 06 Dec 2005

Since installing SP2 I have had very slow browsing and even none at all. I have 2meg BB and the speed since installing SP2 has been less than the speed of dial-up. I have now removed SP2 and the speed is back as it should be. Why is this and do I need SP2 on my computer? If I do how do I get over this problem? Thanks.

Have you got a firewall operating as well as the Windows firewall? I switch the windows firewall off and use zonealarm. 2 firewalls can cause this problem.

I turned off the windows firewall because with that enabled I couldn't browse at all. With this disabled it was as I said above.
