    1. Check space available on hard drive. Make sure you have some. Over 1 GB.
    2. Test speed using: http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest
    3. Make sure you have only one firewall, either windows or router and not both.
    4. Clean up hard drive; remove cache, cookies, etc from all browsers
    5. Run anti-virus and spyware software.
    6. Defrag hard drive.
    7. Re-test speed using: http://www.dslreports.com/speedtest
    8. If browsing still slow without playing games then check router / cable modem settings / setup.

    :) wow...almost perfect answer:) the only thing that is missing is checking to see your running processes in the task manager...

    Click the "Processes" tab.
    • Click on the gray bar in the middle column that says User Name to sort by user name.
    • Do NOT select anything for SYSTEM, LOCAL SERVICE, or NETWORK SERVICE.
    • Click on anything besides EXPLORER and TASKMGR for this User Name or other user names.
    • Click on END PROCESS
    • Repeat these steps until only explorer.exe and taskmgr.exe are open for this user profile.
