I have an HP Pavilion524w with a1.73 gigahertz AMD Athelon XP processor, 60 gigabytes hard drive with 35 gigabytes of free space, & 352 Megabytes installed memory. This info is provided by the program Belarc Advisor. If you need more, please let me know.
My problem; I'm on Broadband supplied by my cable supplier, Mediacom. When I click on the Internet, a program,e-mail, etc, the computer would react instantly in bringing it up. However, for the last couple of weeks it takes a very long time to bring up anything, sometimes as long as 7 minutes, on average much slower than dialup. To correct this problem, I bought & installed a program from Uniblue called SpeedUpMyPC. When first installed, it indicated my "optimization level" was at very low. After running the program, it jumped up to medium. However, it did not speed up the computer to its normal operating speed at all. It remained the same. Can you help me find the problem??
