Ok, so I switched to time warner cable internet. Everything was going fine. I went on speedtest.net and my connection was fast. When I signed up with time warner I was able to download free virus software and firewall. The program is called Ca Security Center. Ever since then I get an error when I use speedtest.net. How do I fix this? I have even tried to unistall and turn off my Ca security Center, but I still have issues.

My main worry is that my computer isnt going as fast as it should. But I want to be able to check my speed, but I cant.

You can google for DSL Speed test or Broadband speed test
and you will find tons of speed tests.

Nice workaround Romeo. :thumbsup:

However, Nasty Nas, if you still want to know why you can't get to speedtest.net, you would probably be best off asking CA support. Very few people that I know of run CA so not many will know the answer. Just guessing, there may be some sort of website blocker that has the domain blacklisted.

I do remember working on a HijackThis log of someone who had just installed CA from Comcast. There were a huge amount of startup entries (all legit of course), unusual even for an antivirus. I can only imagine that it causes a marked slowdown. What were you running before?

You might also ask CA support if there is an uninstalling tool available--I don't have one in my list of bookmarks--most other AV's have one. There is an old one here, but don't know if it will work for your version:
