Help with slow upload speed!!!

by nsb318 / February 17, 2012 9:08 PM PST

For about a week now my internet connection has been extremely slow. It doesn't matter if I use Safari, IE, or Firefox. I ran all the necessary scans (virues, spy/malware), deleted cookies, history, defrag, disk cleanup, etc. I recently talked with my ISP and they told me the upload speed from my computer was the issue. A tech came out, installed independent line which did not fix the problem. He plugged in his laptop and the speed was just fine so I know for a fact its my desktop.

I hoping to exhaust all means possible before purchasing a new unit. My computer is about 6 yrs old but everything else seems to work fine. Its just the internet speed I'm having issues with. Hopefully someone can help me.

You may want to tell the forum about security suite, what you use to detect malware and more.

About mixing security products and the results. You may have revealed why it's a tad slow.
