Computers are great, aren't they???
I had some virus or malware issues that Avast & Malwarebytes picked up on & deleted, but now this computer is almost unusable as far as speed goes: If I click on my bookmark for this site, I can count to 30 (seconds) before it appears. I downloaded & purchased PC Pitstop's OPTIMIZER out of desperation (WASTE OF MONEY!!!
) to fix this.
DSL connection tests show it's fine, but if I watch the lights on the modem, nothing is happening right away -- It used to blink fast, then bam - page loaded. Now it might not flash at all, or flashes very slowly .... like something is preventing it from connecting to a site.
This all got worse after I tried to start a network to connect a DVR to my PC -- now I have to physically go into the CONNECT TO
folder on the start button & click on a connection that wasn't there before -- used to only be one connection & it was always on!
I'm so pissed that I'm just ready to waste more money & have someone else fix this thing!
I'm sure there's no clear-cut answer to this, but does anyone know where to start?
