my 1st question is.do you use norton internet security? if so, it gobbles up bandwidth big time, get rid of it. There are a few really good free antivirus programs, ANTIVIR and AVG are good, I use AVG FIREFOX should be your browser, and a program called FIRETUNE, it will tweak firefox. there are a lot of helpful tweaks here at http://www.tweakxp.com/performance_tweaks.aspx see what services are running on your pc, a good site to see what the names mean is http://www.castlecops.com/StartupList.html Upgrade your modem drivers if you haven't already. Goodluck, norpas.com
