Is it your actual internet speeds that have slowed down or your windows OS?

 

(by the way - we do have a help forum y'know)

I know we have a Help forum as I said at the beginning but it takes ages to get an answer on there. Wor lad has lost loads of his icons, we can't get into the program he uses for work via the internet , it just says no such website whereas he uses it every day whilst at work ?? and everything has slowed down altogether ??

you could try a system restore

??? :good:

Every now and again, windows takes a 'snapshot' of your system. it basically copies all the critical system files, puts a date and time stamp on them, then hides them out the way.

 

if your pc is kaput you can 'restore' it to a date and time when you knew your pc was working perfectly.

 

Doesnt always work though.
