My Norton expired so I went with the complimentary McAfee program via Comcast, and my internet has substantially slowed down to the point where pages and pictures won't fully load and I lose my connection with online applications. Before I switched security programs, as in earlier that day, everything was fine. I have run the virus checker, adaware, spybot, Ccleaner, and am still eking by. I did a speed test and got a reading around 2000kbps with a ping of about 180. Also, it seems my puter keeps churning as though it's doing something, even when it shouldn't be, in a cycle of about every 5 seconds (CPU light runs and the rattling sound occurs). I can't seem to figure out what may be causing this.
Additionally, when I surf the net, using Firefox, all of the ads show up, despite the fact that McAfee's box to remove the ads is checked (I tried unchecking it and problem remained).
Anyone know what could be the problem? Thanks for any help, this is driving me cuckoo. Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum~ TMacK
