New to the game


Recommended Posts

Konog here

I stumbled onto your site looking for solutions to my cable modem which slowed down inexplicability.  I first noticed a slow down while downloading files from email and then while playing online games  with horrific lag.

I read through some "pre-post"  tips and downloaded CableNut and SpyBot.

I ran SpyBot  & SpySweeper and found nothing unusual and CableNut didnt make any sense, not yet anyway.

I ran the Download test and got results similiar to todays test:

Then I powered down my modem and rebooted and reran the Download test and WOW!!! I was off the charts at 7.1Mbps ( I wish I copied the results)

I logged back in and everyting was great, for a while, then I noticed a slow down and reran the Download test and I was back to 0.7 Mbps.

I tried powering down again but had no luck.

I run:  Dell 4600

          Win XP

          Pentium 4 2.40 Ghz

          1 GB RAM

          No Firewall

Help!!!

;) Yeah I have a paid McAfee latestest version that I removed because it slowed down my connection a lot, my speeds increased over 1000 Kbps after I removed Mac (tech support was no help, but it was free..L0L)keep the McAfee if you want but get the firewall and adAware and run everything and in the meantime I will post a link to the place you can start.

Also after you down load these things if I may suggest disconnect from the internet(unplug) until after all is installed and run also do a complete virus scan..........

;) OK but ya gotta run again along with the other things so we can make sure that we are not fighting against a virus or any other malware or trojan etc, ets, I know its a hassle but we must have a known clean slate to start otherwise we will not have the sucess we want.... thanks
