    i just signed up for cable internet and when it was first hooked up it worked fine. now its running very slow. browsing and downloading isn't bad but def. not as fast as it used to be. in games even if its a low ping server my lag is through the roof. it wasn't this way a few days ago. my ping used to be always under 50 in games like Call of Duty, now its usually 100-300. i went to dslreports.com and tested my connection and it came out with 1012 down and 258 up. whats going on?

    im perfectly aware of viruses and spyware. i have norton 2004 systemworks and it hasn't found any viruses and i doubt its spyware. i just reinstalled windows like 2 days ago and immediately put service pack 2 and norton on before i hooked it up to the internet

    edit* i ran spysweeper with the latest defs. and it only found 1 spyware: browservillage sidebar
