I apologize in advance if this has been covered before. I did a relatively quick search and haven't come up with anything too similar as of yet. In the meantime of hearing input from you folks I'll keep looking. Here's the breakdown...

Windows XP
Apparently bootleg as I'm now also getting the "This copy of Windows is not genuine." message thanks to Microsoft's new way of tracking this. Could this be my problem?
Cable via router

Every other program I have seems to work fine. My internet browser is very slow though. This computer is run through a wireless router and tests show it to be fine as well as the connection.

I've run Norton which shows nothing. I've runs spybot, adaware, counterspy, cwshredder, registry mechanic, and ewido, all of which bring up nothing too fancy. They seem to pick up the usual spyware that shows back up almost immediately, but doesn't seem to be doing any harm.

Any suggestions?

Thanks for your time!

You need to purchase a legitimate retail or OEM Windows XP Professional disk with a COA (Certificate Of Authenticity). We do not provide support for problems related to pirated software.
