Use Mozilla firefox browser whihc is beleive to be faster than Internet explorer.

You can tweak the Mozilla by following my link below

Here is the download link

But if you still want to use Internet explorer than tweak the Internet explorer using my earlier link, below is the link

Always use Download Manager to download anything from net except from sites like rapidshare,megaupload etc.They don't support Download Manager as they are file hosting server. 

I recommend you use "Orbit Download Manager" as it is completely free and it support video download from sites like youtube.com etc

Here is the download link from whwre you can downalod Orbit Downloader

That's it.

Make Sure your system is free from virus, trojans or spyware or adware, they slow down the system as well as consumed Internet bandwidth too.Scan your PC with a Good Antivirus but I recommend you to use any Internet security suite.

This is probably not the first time you have heard this but here goes.... I think you went with an upgrade from Vista. Vista sucks!!!!!! If it is an upgrde from Vista to Win 7, uninstall Win vista to get rid of it entirely.

TRYING TO INSTALL CD THAT CAME WITH TI-89 TITANIUM. COMPUTER SAYS "THE FOLLOWING PAGES HAVE BECOME UNRESPONSIVE. KILL PAGES? " I CLICK YES BUT NOTHING HAPPENS. COMP JUST HANGS. WHATS UP??


Go to the education.ti.com web site and download the TI Connect software. Install it on your computer. If you need the manual download it also. As to pages becoming unresponsive, it may be due to many causes: web browser, site busy, configuration of the computer, too may applications opened.

There's something wrong with your Web site, but you don't know what. You've created a Web site and you want people to visit and read it, but for some reason no one's showing up. What could be wrong? Here are some common issues you might have with your Web site without even realizing it.

  1. No One Can Find Your Web Site - They're looking for a Web site just like yours. They go to the search engine and type in their keywords but your Web site is nowhere to be found.

  2. Your Web Pages Are Lost - They finally found your Web site and are looking for a specific Web page but try as they might, they can't find it.

  3. Web Pages Load Slow or Incorrectly - The reader found the Web page he wanted but it took forever to load or things are jumping around on the page while loading. Worse yet, the Web page loaded but it didn't load right.
  4. JavaScript Errors - You decided to add JavaScript to your Web page but you're getting an error.
  5. Text Too Large, Too Small - You want it to be just right. If the text is too small users with a high screen resolution, or bad eyesight, will have trouble reading it. If the text is too large people will have to scroll to read it.
    Use the Right Size


  6. Requiring Downloads - You added music or some other program to your Web site and it requires your readers to download software in order to view it but they don't have the software and don't want it.
    Use Software with Care
  7. Bad Spelling or Grammar - Your reader is reading your Web pages and notices that you're not a good speller or you often leave words out or your grame is just bad.

I wish to download internet explorer 8 on windows 7...help


According to Microsoft Answers page:

Internet Explorer 8 is part of Windows 7 and can be re-activated using the steps indicated in that page. Try them to see if them can help you solve your problem

Microsoft had just released Internet Explorer 9, with some new features, like a minimalist look browser interface, download manager, add-on manager and allowing the use of video card GPUs to accelerate the image, video and audio processing when loading the web pages to make the loading process much faster. If you want to try it, you can download it from

download ccleaner and run it.
make sure you have 5gb of free space on your hard drive.
make sure you have only one virus checker running.

go to crucial.com and get an online check to see if you could do with some more memory.

if you are on wifi download "inssider" and run it see if there are lots of people using the same channel as you

Running slow


Is it running slow on both wired and wireless connections? how about if a PC is wired directly to the modem? That will eliminate the router as the issue (slow internet could be your modem or the connection itself).

If you're sure it's the router (wireless and wired) then upgrading the firmware would be first step. You can download the latest firmware from linksys.com and get it installed via the web interface of the router (probably found by going to http://192.168.1.1).

If a firmware update doesn't do it you can change your DNS servers from being automatically detected from your ISP to public ones. This may help web pages load faster. You can enter them also using the web interface. Set the Primary and Secondary DNS address to the numbers below (they are from OpenDNS.com).

Primary 208.67.222.222
Secondary 208.67.220.220

The modem is extremely slow-most downloads are far too slow


Dialup phone lines usually only transmit a minimum of 8 Baud. NetZero's high speed (5X) faster is done by caching pages you have already visited, not actially running internet but loading pages faster on your computer. Check your modem setting, 56k, 112K are normal speed setting to connect. Check your actual connection speed, 28.8 is probably all that you are getting on dialup.

Normal Web pages can be viewed, but secure Web pages, like shopping pages or pages that deal with personal information, cannot be viewed. Use the following steps to reset SSL encryption so that secure pages can once again be viewed:

  2. Select Trusted Sites , and then click the Default Level button.

  4. Select Use SSL 2.0 and Use SSL 3.0 if they are not already selected.
  5. Click the Content tab.
  6. Click the Clear SSL State button, and then click OK . You should now be able to view secure Web sites if you had to make any selection. Browse to a secure Web page to make sure. If you still cannot access the page, use the remaining steps to resolve the problem.
