    I am using SbcYahoo DSL. My browser is Snail slow. When I type it takes forever to show in the dialogue box, and all web pages load VERY slowly. Can someone help? I am using a Dell L700cx with a 700 mhz processor with 256mb installed memory. 40gb hard drive.

    Hi miamivice60,

    Welcome to TSG.

    Have you tried the "repair button" on the DSL start-
    up window ? How about the "Refresh" button ?

    If you have, and it didn't help, you need to clear up
    your start menu, tmp files, and defrag like crazy.
    You may be opening too many files in start-up.

    Type "msconfig" in the Run box, and un-check that
    which you don't need. Leave Rundll32 and Systray
    and Explorer alone - you need those.

    Let us know if that helps.
