are the waits and delays i have between clicking and

action attributable to
what's going on inside my computer
my internet connection?

i have a dsl connection with my local telephone co., and

they installed a big grey box within 2 miles of me so i

could connect.

sometimes it all works just fine -- fast, with no delays.

other times, it's like molasses.

this doesn't have anything to do when kaspersky is

doing it's daily routines... or whjen i run other scans. i

know they slow things down.

When I used to live way out in the country(no cable would come out that far) we had signed for dsl and were the last house in the telephone line that could receive dsl. It used to go through swings like that all the time, around 4 in the morning though it would always be blazing fast, so I always just attributed the swings to be from other people on dsl inline before us and when my parents were on the phone it would also slow down(choke at the filters?) I don't know if thats what your issue is, but who knows. Bring up you command prompt when you see that the internet is being slow and look for processes that have a high CPU of Mem usage.

It might also be that the site that you are visiting could be experiencing heavy use.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.
