computer speed

I have dsl but my system runs slow because of how far I am out from the central station. I was wondering if there was any way to get my computer downloading thing of the net faster. Somedays even the downloading of pages of the internet is so slow I can't even use the internet. thanks

Yes there Is

You can go Into control panel and delete huge O.S. that
you do not need and some huge anti virus programs also do
eat a lot of space on your computer...just keep on your
computer what Is absolutely necessary for your purpose
If your anything like me you could even have a selective
start up...what that means Is you can run a great o.s. like
windows xp faster If some things are omitted?

I don't think your Internet speed is slow. My guess is that you have a slow computer. Remove programs you do not need from the various startup locations. Consider other step to speed up your system as well, such as adding additional memory and making sure that you have no spy-ware prorgams running.

Do not remove your anti-virus software or stop it from running. Every computer needs a good anti-virus program.

I agree with Bob. I would guess that it's the computer that's slow. If it's a name brand, can you tell us the model? If it's custom built, what's under the hood? We'd be happy to let you know what we think.
