NTL cable if available in your area

£14.99 per month for 128k speed which is the same price as most ISPs charge for 56k dial up on anytime


Many of the so-called 'speed me up' programs, don't work, but a general cleanup, and maintance of the system, will help.

Go to Tools | Internet Options. General tab. Under Delete Files, delete offline content. Also, clear the History.

Content tab, under AutoComplete, clear Forms and Passwords.

Advanced tab, under Browsing, look for Enable Insta on Demand. Untick.
Under Security, look for Empty Tempory Internet... Tick.
Apply and OK

Go to Find Files and type in cookie. When found, open the folder, and delete all the cookies found. You won't be able to delete the .dat file found.

For this, go here and get the Spider:

Go to Run and type MSINFO32
On the left choose Software Enviroment, then Startup Programs. Copy/paste the list here.

Also, go here and download AddAware

Download and run, ensuring that Deep Registry scan is enabled. Remove all except any references to Web3000 or If you're unsure, copy/paste the list here.

Also, whilst you're there, download and install RefUpdate to get the latest updates. Just click Connect.
