Hi there, i have an xp pc that i bought less than a year ago. It has a wireless bb internet connection which is incredicbly slow (signal actually IS at 54mbps apparantly). It wont bring up any even slightly demanding webpages (e.g. click here then click english) but can just manage more simple ones. when it fails to bring up webpage i cant shut down internet browser or stop th loading and my pc crashes (cant open any programs, even those in taskbar. Ive run numerous virus checks which have picked up nothing, what should i do?
Have you tried scans with Adaware, Spybot & CWShredder? click here, click here & click here. Also get SpywareBlaster - click here which blocks most nasties in the first place. Enable protection after installing. For all the programs remember to check for UPDATES regularly & BEFORE scanning for the first time.
Try a repair of IE - click here (if you need to know how)
Crossbow7 (and Woodchip and Charence):Hi, thanks, i have spybot s+d, ad-aware and spyware blaster but not the other program. i just updated the programs so i dont think there is a problem there. Would getting your other suggested program help my cause?
I have repaired IE as suggested but there has been no improvement
I dont know if i should touch the virtual memory settings in case i do something wrong, should i?!
Huggy71: Thanks, but my system restore isnt working, I dont know why! It says it cant return to the point once it has booted up again.
The webpage you gave me regarding connection speed couldnt be found (I dont use NTL).
Dan:Thanks, but no, it doesnt.
Thanks guys, i havent tried the forum suggested by Huggy yet so will do that now, in the mean time any more ideas??-any clue as to why my system restore wont work?-i tried 2 different restore points but to no avail.
