My computer is slow to connect to the internet. Average connection times are ~2 1/2 minutes. The computer runs XP Pro, SP3 (all updates), cable internet. Once connected to the internet, browsing speed seems unaffected. McAfee detects no viruses. Ad-Aware, Super AntiSpyware, Malware and Windows Defender scans have turned up nothing.
On a possibly related note, McAfee real time protection disables ~3-4 times daily. Multiple calls to McAfee tech support, removals and reinstallations, spyware scans and a McAfee directed DOS scan turned up nothing. The connection speed does not improve with McAfee uninstalled.
Any suggestions to increase the connection speed would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
