    I've noticed recently since I removed some Microsoft security updates that my internet connection is slow to connect to various sites.

    I removed the updates because it made my PC slow, which now is ok.

    When I connect to a 'Favourite' link the blue band starts to move across the base of the screen then stops, but if I re-click '-> GO' on the Address bar (kick start)it usally connects, the same if I click on a link on a webpage it sometimes needs a kick to wake it up.

    I have XP with SP2, Nortons and a D-Link Wireless connection to a D-Link Router. I've checked 'ipconfig /all' with everything being correct IP address and DNS etc. Done searches for spy/adware etc, nothing. The signal strength is at 65% stating its 'excellent' with 54.0 Mbps.

    Any clues why I have to keep clicking on the links or -> GO to kick start/wake up the connections sometimes.

    What update did you uninstall?

    Some times an uninstall does not reset everything.

    There are other things that will slow down your computer. Let's get a HijackThis log file and see what is what

    To download HJTsetup.exe To Download HijackThis go to the following: http://www.thespykiller.co.uk/forum/index.php?action=tpmod;dl=item5
    Filename = 1137518044HJTsetup.exe
    Save the file to your desktop.
    Double click on the HJTsetup.exe icon on your desktop.
    By default it will install to C:\Program Files\HijackThis.
    Continue to click Next in the setup dialog boxes until you get to the Select Additional Tasks dialog.
    Put a check by Create a desktop icon then click Next again.
    Continue to follow the rest of the prompts from there.
    At the final dialog box click Finish and it will launch Hijack This.
    Click on the Do a system scan and save a log file button. It will scan and then ask you to save the log.
    Click Save to save the log file and then the log will open in notepad.
    At the top of the Notepad HJT log screen, hit Edit then Select All then click Edit and then click Copy doing that copies the text to the clipboard, you won't see it yet....
    Open a TechSupportGuy forum Reply window under Internet & Networking in Security for this thread, to have ready to paste the Hijackthis log into. Click once to place the typing cursor in the reply window.
    At the top of your TSG/browser window, hit Edit then Paste
    You should see your copied Hijackthis log appear in the reply space....then, submit the reply and copy and paste the link in the address bar back to the original thread you were in.
    DO NOT have Hijack This fservice pack 2ix anything yet. Most of what it finds will be harmless or even required.
