Hi, I am not an expert , but am learning slowly.

My download/throughput speeds are very slow indeed.

I have a 56K modem. My connection speeds are between 38-40Kbps. My throughput(Eminion) is only 25-28Kbps.
I am running Windows NT4 with OE5.5.
I have AVG 60 firewall & my disc is not full up.
When I enter OE it is easy to stall/freeze the PC.
Downloading websites seem to take 2-3 times longer now than
they did last year.
I have no hard disc backup & am very wary of losing programs or files.

Could anyone give me an indication where I should start looking for the fault please??:confused:
