Why don't I understand????

My broad band spped was rubbish so i renegotiated with Tiscali (your very good advice!) and they upgraded me. My average speed is no download 6.15 mbs and upload 0.4 mbs HOWEVER my machine now seems really slow!

I have run WinASO registry optimiser, Glary Utilities, Malwarebytes Anti malware and SuperAntispyware.

Now I'm stumped - can anyone help.

PLUS - how did I end up with alot browser instead of google? Did i press a wrong button at some point?

And finally - why has an icon called browswer choice appeared on my machine?

Quite probably the ALot toolbar is slowing your speed down - this tells you how to remove it (scroll down the page for removal instructions)

Dont understand your last bit,IE,Firefox etc are browsers,Google is a search engine

Browser Choice was an update from Microsoft - they have been required by the European Union to make it clear to people that there are other browsers available besides Internet Explorer.

The ALot toolbar has replaced the Google toolbar I guess :@)

As usual you have sorted my problem - THANK YOU!!

ps sorry about the browser/search engine confusion - middle aged women can only take on so much info!!! x

Glad it's sorted.
