    The last week or so I noticed that my system seems to have slowed way down in regard to Internet use. It seems pages take forever to upload. Sometimes it just hangs. It doesn't matter whether I'm using Firefox or IE. Offline functions such as using Word or Encarta do not seem to be affected. I did all the usual things like updating and running CW Shredder, AdAware and SptBot which did not find any significant problems. I also ran a scan disk and defragged the hard drive. I also unplugged the modem and turned off the power to the computer so I could do a real cold boot. Nothing seems to improve the performance. I have recently installed Firefox 2.0.0.5. I had no problems before this when I was using Firefox 1.0.7. My system is using Windows 98se as an OS and has a 256 MB RAM with an 800 MHz Pentium III processor. I also have EZArmor installed which is an anti-virus and firewall package. Any ideas on how to improve the speed of Internet browsing?
