I just reformatted and installed her software,everything works fine except internet explorer seems so slow even going from page to page.How can I check that she's getting the best possiable speeds for her dialup connection?

Computer specs are 533 celeron,256 mem,64 mg pci video card,usr5660a-bp modem,win2k pro.Her ipc is peoplepc and whenever I log on the modem shows 44 to 45k connection.

TIA,Allenv

Have you set up an internet cache to use?

You can test latency by going into command prompt, and either typing
Code:
ping google.co.uk
(Or any site) or
Code:
tracert google.co.uk
Although, the latter is a bit dodgey sometimes.

Man that peoplepc stuff is all spyware.Plus she had viruses.Cleaned with housecall,spybot and adaware.
Installed earthlink to check things out,Ran allot better.The phone company in her area offers 3 different levels of dsl.Middle one is only $20 more per month than she's paying now.I think she'll be real happy with it.Again very many thanks for all the help.
TIA,Allenv
