    Regarding this problem..

    you can choose CHROME BROWSER in your system..
    and also delete "YOUR BROWSER HISTORY, COOKIES"..
    every day..

    better you can access the internet with "MINIMUM NUMBER OF TAB" at a time..
    you can use more TAB means it reduce the internet speed.

    don't apply download at the browsing time..
    because it also reduce the speed..

    you can choose the place WITH FULL WI-FI tower area with in your system..

    it surely help you..

    Hello Friend,

    Well, you should first check your internet speed and to do that you need to perform internet speed test. Based on the result you can tell whether you are having any issue with your net speed or not. Now, delete all browsing history and cookis by visiting internet propertise option of the control panel. This will increase the speed of your PC. Doenload the latest version of internet browsers such as internet explorer, google chrome, mozila firefox or apple safari and install any of of them to your system. Hopefully this will enhance your net speed.

    Hi Fiend,

    Slow Internet connection occurs due to many reasons including the Broadband connection failure, network plan/ Tariff limits etc.... For such reasons, you must contact/ enquire the service provider and report the slow speed. Else you can do certain tasks to make the internet browsing much more better. First of all update your browser and for speedy browsing, use Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox. Clean up the browsing history, personal data's from the browser. Clean up the cookies and cache. You can perform this by opening the browser >> Settings>> Clear all personal data's. Also perform the Disk Clean up wizard to clear temporary files.....

    Thank You..

    Re: Slow Internet Speed in Windows XP

    Slow speed of an internet is not due to an Operating System , its mostly a temporary issue but not always . So as you are suffering from this suffering for quite a long time so here are of the reasons that may have been causing it :

    1) Due to the absolute version of your internet explore.
    2) A big file or software may be getting downloaded or some installed software may be getting automatically upgraded in your computer .
    3) it can also be due to the weakening of the signal of your network operator dsue to weather problems .

    Now I will mention you some ways , so that it may benefit you to overcome this problem :
    1) Try to install a latest and stable version of your internet browser or download Firefox , Opera , or Google Chrome which are more faster than other Browsers .
    2) Try to finish the uninstall of a software in your computer by unchecking the button where it is specified that " Automatically download and Install Programs " , and also check whether , if any , files are getting downloaded in your internet downloader .

    This way you can get rid of your problems .

    Hi Friend,

    >> The problem is Slow Internet Speed in the Windows Xp.

    >> So you need to test the speed of the internet using the speedtest.net.

    >> Now check that any backend process is not using the internet to download any update of other service.

    >> Also Remove Temporary files from the system. Use %temp% command in Run Dialogbox.

    >> Then restart the system and Install Google Chrome and then check the speed of the internet.

    I Hope you will understand.

    All The Best.
