My desktop Dell something or other Win XP Home SP3 is not slow. But, my internet connection is hugely slow. I am trying to update my AVG antivirus, and it says I am downloading at 57 *bytes* per second. It says to update my virus defs, it will take 6+ hours. Wow.
This machine is actually physically plugged into the modem, into modem slot 1. Could it be as simple a fix as getting a new ethernet cable? Or something else? My two wireless laptops in the house are not suffering any slowdown at all...
