My computer/internet is running stupidly slowly then kicking me out. I've tried resetting the internet but it hasn't helped.
I'm hoping to get 1D tickets on Saturday but there won't be any chance at this rate.

Have u ran a virus scan?
21/05/2013 at 20:13
I'm doing that now, thanks for the tip.

AVG is really good if you've picked up a virus. My laptop was riddled with them but the free trial of AVG got rid of them all. I was so impressed that I paid out for the full package and touch wood have had no probs since. www.avg.com/.../free-antivirus-download

Thanks Figaro, I've got Kaspersky atm, its running a scan so will see what it comes up with - not that I know what to do if it does come up with anything.

Not tried Kaspersky. I know that while I was running a scan with AVG it would flash up a message saying that it had detected X virus and would I like to delete (um, yes please!) so maybe yours will do the same.

Ah great, fingers crossed it will do the same. Thanks.

What browser do you use? Try downloading another one. Do you have any toolbars or addons? Disable them if you do.
21/05/2013 at 20:46
What do you mean by browser? As in Google? I'll have a look at the others.
21/05/2013 at 20:49
Browser as in Firefox which I use or Explorer which is the one that comes with most computers
21/05/2013 at 20:52
Ah right, its Explorer.
21/05/2013 at 21:16
Have you tried de-fragging it aswell?
21/05/2013 at 21:21
It must know you are planning to use it for 1D tickets...
Yep, that's my contribution to this thread. Apart from "try restarting it", i'm useless with computers. (I chose my new laptop, because it is pink...)

Ha ha thanks AK. I'm just as useless.
