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!

I did contact my ISP. They restarted my modem and had me check upload and download speeds and indicated that they were ok. They indicated that the problem was related to my computer. What could the problem be on their end?

Thanks!

DaChew has commented here about a conflict between IE7 and XP if that helps ? http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/ind...st&p=965509


IE7 has some issues as it wasn't designed for xp


On that basis you may wish to revert to IE6??

Maybe, but the issue developed recently. I've been using IE7 for quite some time. Also, opening without add-ons doesn't improve the connection speed.
