its going a little faster here. but i still think my internet is messed up or something.
i have the sony vaio laptop. so it has wireless internet. and my norton virus expired.
maybe i should check to see if i have a virus or something.

Ya know, the last few days I’ve noticed it’s been slow....and it’s been especially slow today. I have cable too. I thought it was my computer or maybe the connection, but it’s only happening on here.

Just as an FYI....there are 3 free downloads that prevent/kill spyware. They are recommended by Dr. Bombay and I use them weekly, when I do my virus scan as part of weekly maintenance. They are Spyware Blaster, Spybot Search and Destroy and Ad-aware.

I also periodically clean out my cookies, temp files and do a defrag and disc clean.

Then I have Earthlink Spamblocker which has really helped keep the viagra and software crap out of my email.

All these things have made a difference in the speed for me and I have cable. Spyware particularly can gum things up.



Spyware blockers
