Hi all, can anyone help, please ?

On initial start-up, Internet speed seems fine, but the longer my PC is on, the slower the Internet gets. All other programmes are absolutely fine, and running at normal speed.

I have now run virus-scans by 3 different parties, ie AVG, One-stop, and my own service provider, Blueyonder, and all are showing clean. I have run NoAdware, Ewido, and Spybot, which have also found nothing. I use CCleaner, 1-click, and ATF Cleaner and RegClean to clean things up every day, but still no better.

I have, by the way, Intel Pentium 4, with 512mb RAM, 2.8 ghz, running Windows XP Home, and I have a wireless internet connection (all connections checked and in order)

Any ideas please, would be greatly appreciated. Here is my HJT log:

If you are not on the NET does the PC slow down as well??


Your Java is out of date. Older versions have vulnerabilities that malware can use to infect your system. Please follow these steps to remove older version Java components and update.

Updating Java:

Download the latest version of Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 Update

  • Scroll down to where it says "The J2SE Runtime Environment (JRE) allows end-users to run Java applications".
  • Click the "Download" button to the right.
  • Check the box that says: "Accept License Agreement".
  • The page will refresh.
  • Click on the link to download Windows Offline Installation with or without Multi-language and save to your desktop.
  • Close any programs you may have running - especially your web browser.
  • Go to Start > Control Panel double-click on Add/Remove programs and remove all older versions of Java.
  • Check any item with Java Runtime Environment (JRE or J2SE) in the name.
  • Click the Remove or Change/Remove button.
  • Repeat as many times as necessary to remove each Java versions.

    Reboot your computer once all Java components are removed.

    Then from your desktop double-click on jre-6-windows-i586.exe to install the newest version.

Bonk; Thankyou very much for ther reply; I`d almost given up there for a minute. :)

The computer`s fine mate, whether I`m on the net or not. It`s just the net that`s giving me problems, and is very "lazy".

Anyway, I`m going to try what you`ve instructed, and get back to you.

Cheers.

Try Ad-Aware SE


Download and Install Ad-Aware SE (update before scanning)

Try you connection using Ethernet instead of wireless and see how it acts
