One of the quiestions I get aksed by my clients all the time is. Why their internet speeds are so slow even though they have a high speed internet connection. Your issue is most likely one of two things, your computer is outdated and does not have the power needed to chache the web pages fast enough or you really just don’t have that high of an internet connection.
In most cases it is the latter. People who have computers with only 256 MB of ram and a lower processor like the old Athlon or Celeron will not be able to pull up WebPages that fast. They just don’t have enough ram to do it. If the memory installed in your computer is under 1G and under 2 Gig in Vista then that can very easliy be part of the issue you are having. View this why is my computer so slow site for more details on installing memory and other such ideas you can do.
In some cases those you use a DSL service may find that at certain times of the day the internet connection is slow. If you notice fast speeds at different times of the day and then all the sudden around the same time each day your computer just slows done on the web then it is very likely that too many people are on. You should double check to make sure an anti-virus scan is not scheduled to go on at that time. This will ensure the issue is not on your end.
There are still other things to consider. You might also be infected with a virus that is causing all the issues. For most people when you are infected you will know it by all the pop-ups and fake security clients installed on your computer. Generally people who have a slower internet connection have always had a slow connection. If you have alwasy had a fast connection before and just over the last few weeks it has crawled to a hault then you may just be infected with a virus, you will want to do a deep scan of your computer to be sure.
