Question about Compaq Presario 5000 PC Desktop
Lots of pop ups I have pop up blockers, but the dsl is still slow, any suggestions.
It sounds like your computer might be infected with something, you should not be getting popups in this day and age :)
I would suggest 2 things, firstly you can avoid most of the problems on the Internet by using a safer web browser, either Firefox or Opera is much safer than using the included browser Internet Explorer6/7.
The second thing would be to run an online virus, trojan, spyware scanner such as housecall . This runs in your web browser and does not conflict with any antivirus installed on the computer, let it scan your computer and when its done it should remove anything found.
Doing this and using another web browser should speed up your computer which in turn should speed up your internet hopefully.
In firefox you can even install a plugin call 'adblock filter updater' which not only blocks adverts but stops them from even loading, this should speed up your connection some.
Try this and let us know.
Hope this helps.
