Please help! I am running Windows XP and about a week and a half ago things slowed to a crawl. I have a wireless connection through Clearwire and I received a message that my connection was slowing down the network and that I needed to clean up any viruses or anything that was bogging down my system. AFTER they informed me of this, my computer slowed tremendously.

I did the following scans: Trend Micro PC-Cillin ver 12; AVG 8.0; Ad-Aware; SpyBot Search & Destroy; SpyWare Blaster. Anything that was returned was Quarantined and Removed and upon restart I have re-scanned each and nothing comes up.

My Internet connection starts up OK and certain pages seem to load fine but others with imbedded video files or multiple jpegs are extremely slow. When I try to download music files from iTunes, my "connection times out."

I've cleaned up my startup programs and have pretty much exhausted my knowledge. Can anybody out there help me?!?

Thanks in advance.

Hi timoscar,

Have you contacted your ISP? Depending on what package you have it could be that the amount of MBs they are giving you is too much for your PC. Ask them to cap it at 6-7MB if this is the case.
