Great! Glad spybot is there now - and even more that everything seems to be A-OK! Do you feel comfortable with using it, and did you set up the Tea Timer so you can control what happens with your registry?

No, I didn't see another post. Sorry. I did, however, send you some more information on our last one, with images. If you go back to that one, you will see that I had to post the images separately, it didn't come through properly the first time. But this should help us make sure your Internet connection is set up properly...

Just to give us a gauge, as I am in the US and not sure where you are, I went to the oz speed test and ran it as well. Choosing from the Australian list, using the (15MB) OptusNet mirror, I got:
245.01 secs
512 kbps line speed (0.51 Mbps)
64 KB/s download speed (0.06 MB/s)
Using one a little closer to home - MadRooster.com, in FL:
49.92 secs
2.51 Mbps (2511 kbps)
314 KB/s (0.31 MB/s)
Using the test provided by my ISP (the internet service provider - in my case the phone company) my typical download speed is 4.5 Mbps and upload speed of 450Kbps. Just as a frame of reference, what I pay for is 6.0Mbps down and 768 Kbps up...

I think based on these results, we can draw certain conclusions, regarding the cause(s) of speed variances, aside from the dial-up vs. DSL controversy:
- The speed or level of service that you are subscribed to receive (what you signed up for and are likely paying for).
- Speed is going to be limited to what the server you are connecting to can serve up. In other words, you can't get it faster than they can give it.
- Location of the server can definitely make a difference - for instance, when the server is in Australia (half the world away from me) my speed is dramatically decreased.
- Completely out of our control is the number of users and their activity levels when we are trying to download, upload, or test.

So, as to the question of whether your speeds are OK or not, my opinion is that they are on the "majorly" slow side. If you take a look at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ADSL, you will see that the standards for ADSL2 (which we don't have here yet) are 12.0 Mb/s down and either 1.0 or 3.5 Mb/s up. It could be just that the test was run from a server that had either severe limitations, or that it was quite far away, and the best test would probably be something available through the company providing your service. If you don't come close to the speeds you are supposed to achieve (and I am guessing you might have an issue there), then I would say the company you deal with needs to do something to correct the problem.

In regard to the first answer you were given on this particular question, (I went to your profile to look it up) I don't like to be critical of other experts, as everyone has their own opinions and experiences. However, in this case, I have to disagree with one thing, and that is that there IS a significant difference between dial-up and DSL. If one downloads at 5.4 Mbps, for example, as opposed to 54 kbps, the download speed would be exactly 1,024 times faster. This is a much bigger difference than 2 or 3, as was stated...

At any rate, I would say that you should check on what you are supposed to get, we'll keep working to make sure your settings are right (see the previous post), and we'll get you to the best we can! And with that, I am going to call it a night as it is past midnight here. Have a good day/night, and look forward to hearing from you again soon.

Thank you as always for using and rating FixYa!

No shutting down


uninstall the program, go to download.com and grab spybot, and AVG anti virus.

Once you have installed spybot, let it immunize your system, 100% do a full reboot, do it again, then do a system scan, quarantine everything. You will see a BUNCH of popup windows editing your registry, do not be alarmed, spybot is removing the hijacker programs from the registry(nothing in your registry should redirect your operating system except microsoft official programs that specifically say microsoft on them, in the microsoft directory trees, which are extremely long due to their own "big brother" techniques)

Now once SPYBOT is complete, immunize 2-3 times, to be sure, reboot, do it again, until nothing shows on the 2-3rd boot.

NOW your registry is somewhat functional. NEXT

Download AVG antivirus, do a FULL install, dont custom anything, unless you are a professional network engineer and know your Operating System 100%. Once installed, do a full system scan, it will show, most likely 2-3 items non critical, those are most likely web cookies/java cookies, that hijack, quarantine them. Then if more shows, quarantine them. REBOOT when it asks you to, if it doesnt, reboot anyhow, do it again. BAM BAM BAM!

I hate to tell people this concept, that rebooting helps the FREE programs go into your HIGH RAM BIOS at your system startup and intercept these rogue warez that surface.

Get your programs from download.com and try them out, before you go to a website and use a suite program that says "we can fix it all!!!" Most likely, they are rogue ad-ware/spy-ware/hack-ware, under warez. Download.com uses no programs of the sort, and notify you if the program comes with it.

Long story here, but it should get you through the shutdown issue, if not, its time to overwrite your operating system registry with a fresh and clean unit(reinstall windows), or build a partition with your windows backed up in it, or last you can create a restore point for your windows and go back to when it worked.

Do what you can, within your tech knowledge, and tell me how it goes.

I am running AVG anti virus free version. Give me after scan a note of warnings,133 last scan. Doesn't tell me what they are though or how to repair/delete them.


AVG wont tell you unless it is a virus. most likely it is detecting your cookies. I recommend that you get the "FULL" version of AVG it does protect ALOT better. but i use AVG Free on some of my computers, and paid verson on others. if you want to make sure your system is clean run a system cleanup and remove all the ****. then run ad-aware free version. then run spybot search & Destroy. the go to http://housecall.trendmicro.com/ and run a free scann. it may not be able to clean everything but it will give you the info you need to get it cleaned. then rerun AVG it should come up clean.

E machines very very slow


Do you have anti-spyware software on the machine? I recommend two because none of them detect everything.

Try these two that are free and good. If they get the pc running better make sure you tell her to ues the update function and then run them at least once a week:

Spybot: Search & Destroy:
http://www.safer-networking.org/en/index.html

AdAware: http://www.lavasoftusa.com/products/ad_aware_free.php

Also do a defragment on the hard drive. Go to Start>programs>accessories>system tools>disk defragmenter.

Do all these and let me know how it's running. If this solves the problem PLEASE rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate it yet just add a comment and I'll be happy to help you further. Thanks.

Jeff

P.S. After you download the two programs, run the updates before you check for spyware. And with Spybot, after you're done checking and removing, go the immunize section and make sure to use the immunize function. It will protect you against the known spyware.
If you need help with these just holler.Thanks. Let me know what happens.
