    Okay so over the last 3 or 4 days my internet has dramatically reduced to just over half its original speed ! Im apparently acording to AOL on a *unlimited* (I rang them up and told them i wanted to change and they offered me a huge line for only £14.99) line but prior to that on a 2MB/s although the change up was a nearly a year ago.

    So i was less than a week ago downloading at around 200KB/s now i get around 90KB/s.

    I have reset EVERYTHING to do with my network and even installed my spare Wireless Modem/Router which is of the same brand and model as my original. however nothing changed after doing this...

    Im only 16 but usually quite good with my networking within my house (this doesn't mean i wont understand i plan to take ALL the computer cources i can !) but this has completly boggled me.

    the only think i can think is that a virus has infected my network as norton finished around the same time as my internet slowed. so im currently installing AVG Free.

    Please get back to me

    Ill post my hijack this for my laptop when AVG has finished..

    Thanks A Bunch Guys :)

    Did you uninstall Norton and run Symantec's Norton Removal Tool if you are no longer subscribing to their updates?

    Not yet noo but my mothers laptop never had norton uninstalled however that could explain her massive bandwidth allocation when she uses her laptop but im not sure this is a machine problem as streaming from sky on my xbox has become a slow process whereas before i could stream without pauses now it stop every minute or so even with my laptop disconnected
