Windows 7 - IE9 & Firefox

As from yesterday IE9 & Firefox both went into mega slow mode. Using FF just now from the moment I'd typed in the PCA URL to getting to the 'Tech Helproom' it took 7 minutes plus?! Also it's taking forever to download anything.

I can't see how the following could have had any connection, but I know how you like to have all the facts leading up to an occurance. Well the last two things I've done recently was...

(1) - On Sunday I installed the latest Nvidia Graphics Driver. On Monday, while I was playing a game, the screen went totally black for a blink of an eye, followed by a Windows message that it was caused by Nvidia. So I rolled back the driver.

Have you checked you ISP's status page for problems or run a speed test?

Since posting this thread I have downloaded and installed Avant & Opera. They both perform exactly the same as IE9 & FF.

In answer to your question No I haven't 'checked my ISP's status page for problems'. But Yes I have run a speed test. Here is the result of that...

Download - 0.13 Mbps Upload - 0.37 Mbps

Thats pitifull! I think you could have an ISP problem, check their speed problem pages. Re-boot your router and see if that makes a difference.

Wow, that's what you call SLOWWWWWWWW!

Assuming you are on Broadband, get BT or whoever, to check your line! Definitely something is not right. And as above get in touch with your ISP!

I've rebooted my router a few times, but to no avail. I've been with my ISP since I first got a PC with Windows 95. My ISP is ORANGE and I'm using a new router that they just sent me.

I've just noticed this page isn't showing in its entirety. None of the little icons are showing, such as 'B' for Bold, the little World symbol, where you add a URL etc.

Could be a faulty router - Check with your ISP again.

The router is a 'BrightBox'. I presume that if I hook my old 'Belkin' router up again instead of this one, I'll have to set it up again from scratch, is that right?
