After an infection, a Toshiba recovery, and disinfection with the help of some excellent folks here at this site, the computer is disinfected and running. However, the internet is noticeably slower and Embarqmail is crawling or stalling.
I contacted Embarq who told me to make sure all the noise filters were working, then unhook all phone lines, fax line, satellite line and see if the connection speeded up. That was a big help - NOT. Everything is just like it was a few days ago before all the computer trouble when the internet was working fine and Embarq was being Embarq but at least it was working.
Their solution to the Embarqmail site being slow or stopped was to use Outlook Express. I've never had good success with Outlook Express - after using a while, it simply refuses to send out anything. Right now, it will receive mail but will not send mail, even though all settings look correct.
I use Zone Alarm Security Suite which includes a firewall, if that helps.
Any advice will be welcomed and appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
P.S. Can someone tell me how to get email just when someone replies to a post I've made and not whenever anyone starts a new topic in this forum or any forum I'm using? I'm getting a TON of email alerts.
