Default Chat Room Help Needed

     

My puter guy found the problem I'm having. My puter is only at 44Kbps and the help page in the room says I need 120 something. I can hear text being entered and I can enter text, but it takes forever to show on the screen. If anyone has a suggestion to help me out it is appreciated. Adifferent setting somewhere maybe?

I really dont think that is your problem Oldmx. I connect at 45.6 most of the time and it was working ok for me. I had a little lag but not too bad.

BTW, that was funny ladies.

how old is your comp? do you have a lot of files to slow it down? im not a computer expert, but theres a million things that could be slowing it down. Could be your connection. For me, it was because i had downloaded 800 songs, including three 900mb movies. That slowed it down a ton. On most comps, i think you need a whole bunch of open memory space to operate well, and i was using something like 98% of it. Also, if you download off of Kazaa, or other file sharing programs, you may be experienced to a Trojan virus. I dont think theyre harmful, but take up a lot of space, and keep multiplying (hence the name). I had something like 450 infected files.

this puter is only bout 3 months old and I don't download music. It works well when I use another chat room too. I do have some pics stored and I heard that takes up a lot of space. The quest continues........1........

Ok, give me some details.

Do you have Java installed?
Do you have the latest Flash player installed?

Go to: My computer -> C:\ drive -> Windows directory -> Downloaded Program Files directory and see if you have anything Java in there, and if you have anything that says flash, then report back.

I connect at 28.8 and sometimes 26.4 ( I live WAY out in the country, so "yes" I still have dial up, I don't even get cable way out here in the booneys,and I have a "LITTLE" lag but only a few seconds, I notice my biggest delays when I reply, or post a thread, but it still only takes a couple of seconds, I download TONS of music off of Kazaa and Morpheous,and it takes ALONG time for me to download music, I usually turn my puter on and leave it connected to Kazaa and Morpheous all night, I will have to look for the Trojan Virus now

You may try to Defragment your drives and do a Disk cleanup, it may also help to Syncronize your system, they should all be in your system Tools file (I think), also, make sure you Clear History and delete temp internet files, it may even help to delete cookies, you will have to re-sign back in to all your sites, but I do it occasionally just to clean everything out, all of those should be in your Control Panel, in Network and Internet Connections under Internet Options, and of course you should do a virus scan
I hope it helps

Another thing I just thought of. You may want to get your hands on a good spyware removal program as well. Alot of the websites and pop-ups that you visit on the net create tracking cookies, these record and send back every click you make back to that server.

The only way to get rid of them is a program like Ad-Aware or some like that. There are even free downloadable versions of this program. Go here to download the free version: Ad Aware
