I have newer ( 1 yr. Old) Dell Desktop running Windows XP that accesses a cable modem through a wireless connection (Linksys router and USB). About a week ago it went from very fast to very slow. I can access the internet, but it takes about 20 mins for a page to load. My Macafee virus scan is up-to-date as is my AVG spyware scan. I don't even know where to look next. Any ideas? Thanks!!! Amy

Hi Sorry to hear of the slowdown you are experiencing. Have any alterations/additions or system changes been made that could have caused the problem? Any new programmes installed/downloaded? within say the last 2 weeks? If so consider reversing the installations/system changes. It might be worth while carrying out a System Restore to a date before the problems started. To do this first make sure that all your data is filed in My Documents (not on the desktop )and that you have made a copy of all your important stuff ( System Restore does not as a rule damage/delete your data files but it is best to make sure your copy back up archive is 100% up to date, correct and reproducible. Then go to: Start All programs Accessories System Tools System Restore Restore my computer to an Earlier time Next and then follow on screen directions. Let us know how you get on Regards paws
