I use an Advent 7107 Notebook pc. The spec says it has "256MB to maximum 2GB 533/667MHz DDR2 SDRAM". I'm not desperately techy so don't understand what that really means but I think it means the memory is 2GB.

For some reason, the PC is taking an age to download when I click on a page. This never used to happen. I used to be able to get on the internet, click on a page - eg BBC news (I'm in the UK) and it'd flick right onto it. Now it can take 2, 3, 4 minutes to download the page. I have no idea why. I don't use the PC to play games on. I don't log onto porn sites or gaming sites. I've run my regular weekly Spybot S&D, Super antispyware, and Malware scans, all are negative. I've deleted the temporary internet files from IE v 7 per the Tools options on the IE toolbar, but tonight, when I log on, its still slow. I lost internet access last night (Sunday). The router was working fine so I think the ISP lost the access. My ISP is Virgin Media (sadly) and I pay for their fast broadband coverage. I don't know whether its an ISP / Virgin Media problem or whether its my PC. Tyring to contact Virgin Media is ridiculous. Barack Obama is more likely to answer his phone that Virgin answer theirs and when they do answer, their support staff know nothing and aren't desperately helpful.

Currently, my disc space says Total Size 50.5GB with free space showing as 22.4GB. Is this enough? Is there something wrong with the random access memory?

Thanks for any help. I've tried to outline the system spec and what the problems are adequately but if I've missed anythign out etc, please let me know.
