    Finally! Been here three times...been having a few problems lately...pages taking an extremely long time to load...or not completely loading at all...errors on firefox...no data errors...page errors...

    AVG reports nothing
    AdWareSE reports nothing
    Disk Defrag does not need defragging
    Disk clean-up...tried twice...either it was taking a very long time to work ( I didn't have the patience to wait )...or it wasn't scanning at all ( it said it was scanning but that little brush was not sweeping )
    just cleared my browswer cache and history yesterday
    ran hijackthis and nothing unusual...

    Run a memory checker on the system. Sounds hardware related to me.

    Could these problems be stemming from my ISP ?

    About a week ago their phone line was down and I couldn't even get on the net...everytime I would try I would get the phone message " this line is not in service " they said they fixed the problem and the line was back up in an hour.

    P.S. Does my log look OK ?

    Thanks,

    Ok, first check the obvious -
    Clear browser cache, clean out the cookies, clear history, defrag, try again.

    If this isn't successful, since you've let us know you're on dialup, try rebuilding your dialup adaptor/disabling re-enabling tcp/ip. Sometimes it needs a swift kick to get it up and running right again. If you're using one of the 'big' isp's that has their own software (aohell, earthlink, etc) just delete the adaptor entirely but have your cd on hand when you restart it - the software will rebuild the adaptor for you.

    If this isn't successful, it could be a browser issue (any changes to your browser lately?) or a hardware issue like Zenger suggested - hardware is the last check in the chain on this, but if you get that far, check memory, check video drivers then video card. Good luck!

    [edit]oh, from what I read your log looks fine. I still hate that bloody Google toolbar though...

    Here's the other thing to suspect:
    O3 - Toolbar: @msdxmLC.dll,-1@1033,&Radio -

    Again, I'm suspicious of all toolbars and bho's not pertaining to software I've directly installed. If that toolbar is something you want, you're clean.
    [/edit]

    [moredit] I saw where you were having probs with disk cleanup - this is usually indicative of a lot of stuff to be cleaned or a problem with that software. Try cleaning your cache manually through firefox>tools>options, and your cookies manually (search: cookie), and try it again. There might be more to this than just slow browsing.[/moredit]
    Even a broken watch is correct twice a day.

    Which coder said that nobody could outcode Microsoft in their own OS? Write a bit and make a fortune!

    Yeah, log looks good. I took a second look through your stuff. Are you saying you're only have problem web browsing? I took it initially that your machine was running slow. If its just web browsing I would say an ISP problem is a high possiblity.

    How is the RAM configured ?
    256 + 128 ??

    If so, remove ONE stick, and try to boot.
    Then replace stick, and remove OTHER one.

    Boot and see if there is any NOTICABLE differences ........

    Speed of OS load
    response time for Apps to load

    Now re-instate ALL RAM, check its in properly.
    boot and check as above.

    Possibly RAM is failing / unseated

    HDD's also fail, although you would expect some other indictions [noisy whine etc]

    Who is your ISP? I have comcast and I know that they have been having a LOT of dns problems as of late. I had to use an alternate public DNS server so that i could get pages to resolve for me. May be your problem. Try adding a new DNS server other than the one your ISP is using.

    Amen to that! Comcast DNS blows hard, see if you can still get to webpages by putting in there ip addresses.

    Could very well be a memory issue as was stated above.

    I'll try to do half now and half later ( in ten minutes I have to pick up one of my daughters from school )...

    Hi l3lacklce,

    Already cleared cache.

    Not AOL or other major ISP...on Primus...and no CD...connected via phone through a walk-through with their techs.

    No recent changes to browser. Did however recently download three Windows 2000 updates from the Update Ctr.

    According to System Specs there are no conflicts with drivers, video, or memory...and says system healthy.

    Toolbar? I use firefox...I do have a google toolbar on IE but I never use it except for update.

    Hi zENGER,

    You know...machines been slow off-line too but maybe it just seems that way because I'm more aware of the slowness now with this...I'll check.

    Hi foxyloxley,

    Yes 256+128!

    I never have opened the box and done anything to it...I've always paid a professional to do that...too worried I'd muck it up! But if necessary I will.

    Hi Spyrus,

    Primus...how do you add a new DNS server?

    Thanks everybody!!!
