I have been having problems with my internet connection. I am running Vista Basic on a cable modem and its slower than dial-up. I have tried to optimize Internet Explorers performance by changing some of the options. I have also run Disc Cleanup and Defrag and nothing seems to be helping at all. Do you have any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance,

Erin :thumbsup:

Try this first:

TCP Optimizer

It's free. If that doesn't improve things then try your ISP support.

Often it is malware that is the problem.

Use the two free programs below to scan for malware
