    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:
