      after re-installing windows internet really slow... (RESOLVED)

      as above really, got a trojan last week spent half the week chasing it then gave up and started again, fresh intstall of windows xp pro, only thing is ever since my internet has been really really (almost) dail-up slow.
      Ive tried the speed tests which say its downloading still at 850 + kbs but whilst surfing its taking an age just to change page.
      Any ideas? I know its not my hardware, I built this PC myself and its of a very good standard shall we say, also Ive tried the TCP optimizer, still no joy....

      Did you reinstall some anti virus software before going back on the net?

      NIS is a bumber!

      Try turning the firewall off for a few mins and see if it makes a difference?

      I assume you used NIS before?

      ME and XP drivers are not up to scratch for your lan, try updating, also motherboard drivers are a must
