Speed Problems Direct me to the proper forum please

Recommended Posts

My desktop took a nose dive. My tech that built my desktop for me thinks it's the Nic going down.

What I have.

Desktop pc XP OS

Verizon DSL

D-link

to cheesey verizon router.

I use firefox browser thunderbird mail client

I have hijack this

Also windoctor

and I forget the name but it starts with a Ka-something?

I'm looking for a education and some help.

It started out,..... coming home to find my SO let a friend in my den to wait for me.

When I walked in he was messing with my desktop and his Ipod. I was/am still not happy

about this at all. The PC was running like a slug. Not getting better yet.

These results are with avast and comodo OFF. I also did command prompt for yahoo it couldn't find it. A few other command prompts I have a screen shot of. Not familiar with the forum yet.

To know if you do attachments or outside hosted images.

If there is a screen shot tute on setting up DSL that would be great. I learn the best with visuals.

Here are the grim  :2funny:  test results.

Appreciated.

I have been using these programs/methods to do these tasks.

adAware, spybot, O and O defrag, Avast, comodo, Firefox, thunderbird mail client.

I cleaned up and out over 600 junk temp files yesterday. I have 2 registery errors for some

silly garden site that I haven't gotten resolved and may not. I have 6 files that keep re-inventing themselves they are temp files and Thumbs.db files. I do avast boot scan once a week. I use

Crapcleaner now called The Cleaner I guess all the time. At the moment I have O and O defrag

doing a defrag on boot.

Is there a test to show what my DSL connections are and if they need to be corrected?

Is there a test to see if my d-link NIC is going down for the count?

Here is the ping. From these results can anyone tell if it's a config problem or a D-Link/Nic failing? Or ?

Does anyone have a link to a tute with screen shots for setting up a DSL network? I use my laptop

with this router.
