    My Internet is slow as hell

    The internet on my laptop has been really slow for about the last two weeks. (I'm talkint 33.3K slow here.) But I didn't really care because I do all of my internet stuff at work anyways. I'm running a wireless card and it's just flat out slow. Pictures take forever to load, pages take a solid minute before they even start to load and now it's just starting to piss me off. It's kind of weird because when I download something, it's normal speed. But the thing is, I can go on my desktop downstairs (which is also wireless and on the same network) and it's fast as hell. Does anyone have and suggestions to how I can get the performance back again? I'm running Internet Explorer and I've ran Spybot S&D and Adaware plus I have Spysweeper and Norton. I miss taking shits and talking to people on AIM and surfing drag.

    What OS? IF Win95/98ME, I have a speedpatch that might fix it.
    Interesting...

    i guess since you have all the spyware and other virus/spyware programs already installed you would be smart enough to periodically delete any temporary files you dont need and run a defragment session etc. It sounds like ya have a virus but hell it's a computer so who knows! Good Luck with it...some viruses disable the liveupdate mechanism so you can't actually update anything to clear the viruses off that way - might want to check on that with the new virus alerts etc.

    Thanks. Yeah, I'm about to just say 'screw it' and save all my files to a disk and start all over again. I'll dedicate the entire computer to porn!!!!

    hit control alt delete and see if something is taking up a majority of the resources. sometimes it's 1 program.

    try hooking your laptop up with a cat5 cable. if the speed doesn't improve, there's something definitely wrong. update your virus apps and run a virus scan. you might also want to try a different wireless card. just buy one, test it on yo shit, and return it if you so desire.

    Worst Internet Ever!

    Sounds like your System Idle Process is taking up 98-99% of resources if your using XP.
