Hi this is my first post and iam a bit of a novice ....I have a problem in that suddenly when images are downloading from a particular page for example face book they down load slow and also when i try watching a video on you tube any video plays for about 30 secs then stops and doesnt go any further.This happens every time ...Everthing has been fine before..Iam using xp and have tried a different browser(mozilla) but still the same..If i use my laptop on the same router instead of pc then everything is fine...Any help would be appreciated.

Have you scanned for viruses and malware? What type of protection do you have?

Is it only certain sites that the images are downloading slowly from? What happens when you download a regular file from a fast server?

If your download rates are sagging in general, it's not out of the question to assume that you may be experiencing a patchy service from your ISP. But if it's restricted to only certain pages, it could be a number of things. Are any scripts being loaded behind the scenes? Spyware and malware can cause problems with attempted re-directs.

Check out your Event Viewer on the troublesome pages for an idea of what's causing the problem during the page load.

Thanks for all your help...Looks like the avg scan has cured the problem.
