hello everyone I have a question
my computers browsing is to a freaking crawl =(
firefox and IE
both are going slow
however my transfer rates are still decent I hit 300Kbps this morning
so.... can anyone please help me out here?
could it be because i have only 256Mb of ram?
Ofcourse not. Neither the RAM nor the speed of your processor can effect your browsing or download speed.
thanks for all the replies
it is recent like before it dind't even take 2 seconds to load pages
now it took me like 25 seconds to load yahoo mail
(and other pages)
the ping is going at an average of 90 ms
right now while doing this is about 15%
hmmm i've scanned too
im going to try unplugging then rebooting now to see if that helps any
oh and im on windows XP Home edition
I just did the cleaning up thing
and the modem thing my ping was better
heck it even started better well the ping? I dont know which is goood low?
high? or whatever lol
but now the average is 86 and its loading much better now
1) more RAM is always better
2) more free HD space is always better too
3) updated version of your programs are good (most of the time)
4) a virus and trojan free system is ALWAYS good
also defragment your computer if you havent done that in a while...
