    I'm running Windows 98 on an 800MegHz computer, we are on Road Runner DSL. Two months ago I noticed that when accessing Outlook Express from the desk top or from "mail" within Road Runner, it took a full minute to even begin the program. It then took another minute to load the mail. Also noted that any and all searchs (Yahoo,Lycos,RR search) on the Web are very slow. When I put something in the search box, I can count on waiting a full minute. Page movement on the net is very fast...searchs are very slow. I've solved the mail problem....Yesterday I loaded just plain Outlook from Office. Mail now is lightning fast. Can someone help me with my search problem? Thanks. Wayne

    This can be caused by a variety of problems but seems the most relavent one is spyware. If you go to http://www.lavasoftusa.com you can download for free a program that searches your system & will eliminate it of spyware.
    Go get Ad-aware & run that first...then update your virus scanner & run it as well.
    Let us know if it helped.

    Also... Do you have a proxy with the DSL?
