Default More PC help...

I am having the strangest problem with my computer I have ever had...I am totally stumped. When I log on to the 'net, at first everything is fine, but after about 10 minutes it slows down dramatically , and when I check the status of the connection it says that I have sent far more (like millions of bites more) than I have recieved. I am beginning to wonder if it'* some freaky virus or something. Any suggestions or explanation would be very much appreciated.

Hiya sweetie. Get drunk. It'* working for me.

Seriously, download Adaware or sumthin like that. You got something being sneaky sending crap out. I run it like once a month if I'm sober enough to remember to. Gator is the worst. Sneaky little reptile. It keeps your bandwitdth busy.

Thanks for the tip...I will try that (not the drunk part ). All I know is I'd better do something to fix it soon, before I end up in a padded cell murmuring about bandwidth and bites! :P (If I can't fix it maybe then I'll try the )

Hailey, it might not hurt to upgrade your AV program. Do you have a firewall too?

Hailey, before you spend money on a firewall, got to SARC. Unless you're on all day, a firewall my be overkill for you, and won't fix the problem you probably have.

I sell 'em for a living, I know what I'm talking about.
