      very slow since mcafee update

      hey guys

      Ive noticed since upgrading to the new mcafee update from sky my connection has been very very slow! Just to load up a normal page (for example yahoo.co.uk) it takes about 30 seconds just to load up!!

      Any one else noticed this problem? if so do you know how to get it back to normal??

      thanks in advance!

      Welcome splashy,

      Dump McAfee - it's crappy, and download free AVG.
      Although I am told there are a few gifted souls who
      change the settings of McAfee and get it to work with Sky BB.
      But why bother?

      AVG is still free,so is the antispyware and rootkit detector. The antispyware you have to update manually but that is a minor thing. I use all the antivirus and antispyware on Vista Home Prem
