Re: High Speed and viruses
Slowness can be caused by viruses.
Run a virus scan and see what comes up.
If there are viruses on the computer, you may want to consider Restoring your computer to factory settings.
But before you do that
Run a virus scan; go to Symantec and run it or download AVG free.
If you decide to restore to factory settings, I will be glad to help you. Understand, you will loose everything on the computer, and you will have to run all your programs again, set up your network connection and email. Very time consuming.

Is you computer slow when using software offline? If so, it is either AOL or your internet. Don't judge the speed strictly by going to AOL. Go to Speakeasy Speed Test and test your internet speed. If that shows your internet is running at the speed you are paying for, it si AOL having trouble. You don't say which browser you are using, but most browsers have an option to block pop-ups. Make sure it is on.
Run a virus scan on your PC to see if it is infected. Also defrag your hard drive to speed it up some.

Assuming you are speaking about download speed, you should remember that you pay for "up to" so-many-mbits per second. I pay for 15mbps, but I assure you that I have never once seen speeds anywhere near that. Also, your speed is all dependent on where you're downloading from. For instance I get a great connection from microsoft, but a rather poor connection from other places. If she is using a wireless connection, have her use a LAN cable if at all possible. Also, have her scan for viruses with programs like avast, spybot, and malwarebytes because if she has viruses they could be slowing her connection speed down a lot if they're making internet connections on their own.
Install Spybot Search and Destroy update it and run a scan, then install AVG Free update it and scan, this should remove the spyware and or viruses that are slowing down you connection. Also install CCleaner and run this utility first use the Cleaner component, first tab in the application, analyse and once completed click run cleaner. Then use the Registry Cleaner part of the program scan for issues then fix selected issues (ALL) it will say its deleting some registries, this is good, its deleted old, unused or virus/spyware registry.
This should make ur internet connection go back to normal and speed up your computer as well, to speed up your computer even more defragment the hard drives.

Hi Jean, sounds like you might need to add more memory to your PC. A fast Internet connection won't make a slow machine run any faster. If you right click on My Computer and choose properties, the box that comes up should tell you how much memory you currently have. If it's 512mb or less, that's a good indication that that is the problem.
