    If you use the Intershit Exploder try to delete the temporary files, cookies 'n stuff.

    google around for Trojan Defense System. There's a free downloadable
    version. Update the Radius database (available on the same site).
    Check out, if there's no trojan or worm on your machine!

    Scan your system for open ports (of course not from the same machine, ask a friend to nmap you). If nothing of the above hints help you, come
    back here, together we surely find your probs

    ok ... to andareed, i got adaware and i scanned and it found 27 things, 26 files and 1 folder. although im glad i have no more spyware, this did not improve my connection thx, though.

    to LocutusofBorg, i got the trojan defense system, and although it found SEVERAL WORMS AND TROJANS MY NORTON 2003 HAD FAILED TO DETECT,
    my connection seems to have gotten WORSE, although im sure thats not the case.I hope you have more advice, because i am all out of ideas. im thinking of reformatting the hard drive, that would get rid of it for sure. well i have to go, but thx anyway! :mrgreen:

    oh and by theway , i noticed that i said xbox live was laggy. xbox live is fine, because it doesnt have to go through my computer, directly to the xbox. system link through www.xbconnect.com , however, is just as laggy as a pc game

    format, only solution. Just Kidding. Check speeds with another computer. Such as, bring a friend's comp over and try browsing with it. Next, if you experience the same thing. Try pinging a random IP, such as 64.12.187.24 or 199.89.199.27 if you experience high latency, that might account for it. Are you using a router? Or are you running any sharing programs such as kazaa?

    if your latency to either of those ip's is high (above 150) then seek help from your isp.

    Default Maybe i can help you

    Maybe you should reinstall your DSL software and that everything is plugged in. Or maybe your computer is slow. :?:

    Are you using any proxy settings? Uncheck "Automatically detect settings" in the Tools - internet options - connections - lan settings.

    Also, under Tools > Internet Options > General Tab > Temporary Internet files > Click Settings > Change "Amount of disk space to use:" to 5 MB (you have high-speed Internet).

    Or you can put in your Windows XP CD (if you're running XP);
    then go to start, run, and type in: SFC /SCANNOW

    This initializes the System File Checker which will check all your system files for corruption and replace from the Windows XP CD as necessary.

    Will this last thing work? Probably not, but your system is like new.
