    Since this morning, every website I visit has been taking at least 1 1/2 minutes to load (my browser usually loads in 5 seconds), and my online game has been lagging way more than it should. I ran a scan with AVG Free and nothing came up. I left my laptop on overnight, but I've done this before and I haven't had this problem. I've defragmented my computer, but that didn't seem to help.

    System info~
    OS Version: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, Service Pack 3, 32 bit
    Processor: Intel(R) Atom(TM) CPU N270 @ 1.60GHz, x86 Family 6 Model 28 Stepping 2
    Processor Count: 2
    RAM: 1013 Mb
    Graphics Card: Mobile Intel(R) 945 Express Chipset Family, 224 Mb
    Hard Drives: C: Total - 146475 MB, Free - 110169 MB;
    Motherboard: Acer, Aspire one , V1.05, Base Board Serial Number
    Antivirus: AVG Anti-Virus Free Edition 2011, Updated: Yes, On-Demand Scanner: Enabled

    Please help! Thanks. :D

    what happens if you reboot , is it all running OK
    if not I would get the ISP to do a line test - make sure its not there problem before you do much more fault finding on the PC
    maybe they have throttled your connection or have an issue
