Slow Internet Connection on a Computer
Hello I have a HP w1907v with a slow internet.

Here are my computer details:

OS Version: Microsoft® Windows Vista™ Home Premium, Service Pack 2, 64 bit
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) 8450 Triple-Core Processor, AMD64 Family 16 Model 2 Stepping 3
Processor Count: 3
RAM: 4093 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GS, 512 Mb
Hard Drives: C: Total - 465351 MB, Free - 161454 MB; D: Total - 11585 MB, Free - 1075 MB;
Motherboard: OEM_MB, NARRA3
Antivirus: Lavasoft Ad-Aware, Disabled

I go on Command Prompt and type in 'ping <my ip> -t' and my ping is quite low. However when I go to something like YouTube, my ping goes super high! It jumps up to 1000. Also when I go on any website at all, my ping goes super high. It happens mainly on websites which have flash on it. I have a Belkin F6D4050 Enhanced Wireless USB Adapter. I thought it was the USB but it wasn't, because when I put the USB into another computer, the internet was fine. The ping didn't skyrocket or anything. It was constantly low. I don't think it's my modem because it's quite near me. So what could the problem be?

Have you tried defragmenting your computer? Sometimes after you've been on the web deleted or downloaded files it creates not just one file but several. This you can fix by defragmenting. Defragmenting takes those files and puts them back together therefore letting your computer run faster.
Go to start, All programs, Accessories, System tools, Disc defragment. From there Click defrag and depending on the fragments it will take 30 min to and hour. Also try disc clean up.

Didn't really do anything about the ping in command prompt. It has continued to have high ping and "Requested timed out". Any other solution?
