My connection usually runs at 2.2Mbps but not since the last webscanner update! I installed the 4.6.652 to see if it would clear the problem but thats not helped!

I use WinXP pro SP2
Kerio 4.1.3 Personal firewall (free version)
Avast 4.6.652 Home edition
Firefox 1.0.3
Spybot 1.3
Spywareguard 2.2
Adaware SE Build 391
Spywareblaster

I run 1024MB ram with 2.0 Celeron overclocked to 2.67GHZ so it's not like i have a slow computer... i have done virus checks...spyware checks...everything....i


I have developed a severe reduction in speed since i installed the new webscanner....when i disengae this particular option in the provider tab the problem stops. But this leaves me open....could i be missing something?

Ahhh sorry!

Webscanner is an internal part of Avast antivirus!

I turned it off today to do several speed tests and we inactive it has no effect on speed whatsoever....hummm

What if i turned of both firewall and antivirus?

then we'll knwo wheather it's these two...?

Good idea/bad idea?

Very bad idea, when you're on the internet.

I'm not familiar with Avast.
Just wait until someone with Avast experience posts a reply.
I'll keep looking into your problem til then.
Might find something.
