Vista slow internet response
by Skippyqsb - 5/20/12 1:03 PM
All of a sudden I am having slow response to the internet. Both IE and Firefox are slow to open and respond. Sometimes so slow that they will just shut down after opening.
None of my other programs that I use are having any issues. Even when I try to download something, sometimes it takes much longer than it should (20 min for a 30mb file).
I have run a couple of speed tests and my internet speed is fine. I have a 3mb DSL connection, but since I'm a few hundred feet from the main hubb I get the speed of about 6mb.
I have not installed/uninstalled anything, I have run a system diagnostics, run a full virus scan (Trend Micro), I have checked defrag and the system is fine, and I clean my internet history regularly.
I would greatly appreciate any assitance. And FYI, I'm not tech savvy, so please go easy with the terms, etc. *grins*
