Hi

I have had a problem with my laptop for about 8 weeks and I just can't seem to solve it.

The biggest problem is that it refuses to load most websites unless I keep pressing the refresh key, I literally have to press it 20 times to connect with sites like hotmail, google etc, and then it is still slow switching through pages.
It is also pretty slow when using software like word etc.

I have had a major clear out, deleted profiles which weren't needed, cleared out temp internet files and cookies, disk defragmented, and used ccleaner. Avg free is showing no problems and super anti spyware found nothing untoward either.

I don't know if this is relevant but today my computer informed me that Norton Antivirus was no longer installed (hasn't been for about 3 years?) and I also notice that when I send emails from my hotmail the time is an hour out from my pc time.

The device manager shows all of my hardware is working correctly.

Anyway my laptop is a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo pi 1505 and here is its spec:

Genuine intel (R) CPU
T2050 @1.60 ghz
504 mb ram

Thanks for looking

My first thought is your modem and or your areas broadband speed.
Which BB provider do you use?
Have you contacted them ?

I thought that, but both my children have laptops and don't experience the problems which I am having. I wondered whether I have a virus hidden somewhere deep or whether uninstalling and reinstalling internet explorer would help? Although the pc itself does seem a little clunky when not on the internet?
