everything has been going bloody slow for me computer and i have checked for viruses and the matter. What are some other things i can do that would make it faster because it is usually a very fast computer and all of a sudden the whole time im on a web page its loading the whole time and whatnot.

thanks for any help

If webpages are loading slowly, it has almost nothing to do with your actual computer. It means that there's either a problem with your ISP, or there are conflicting network problems. You're not very specific.
A) Is it ALL webpages, or just a certain one?
B) Which internet service do you have? (56k, DSL, Cable, etc)
C) Are you using a hub/router/switch/etc?

maybe the server is being used by a lot of people at once, maybe a cable is loose, maybe someone is making modifications to the server

Do ctrl + alt + delete, go to processes and see if anything has a high number of CPU or mem usage, then tell us what those things are, if any.

Get rid of windows. Go for linux.

start >> run >> msconfig
Turn off unnecessary junk in the startup tab.

Also, uninstall BS programs you have that take up resources. Start >> run >> control panel >> add/remove software.

ive done that but it doesnt turn off processes. in lower left theres always a transferring data thing like everything is still loading, especially graphics, and i have a good graphics card so like how do you turn off the proccesses, or is there anything in the about:config thing thats making it load alot slower than it should

EDIT: btw like battlefield 2142 runs fine so its probably not the connection but like firefox exclusively, so if that helps any..
