A couple of things are going on.
When searching the internet, things seem to have slowed down quite a bit.
Also, I am not able to see images in emails that have been sent to me.
I have been using "clean up" which I believe I got through someone on this site a while back....
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks, Dawn

have you ran a speedtest to see what speeds are coming through the modem, if you have a router, bypass it your ISP will only garrantee your speeds through the modem unless they provided the router. Use this site, speedtest.net it is the best and it is easy to use. Start here and let me know what the results are.

I'm not sure how to let you know what the results are...
I installed, did a scan, it seems 2 errors (junk files) were found and in order to "clean up" I need to purchase.
Are you suggesting I do that?

No go to speedtest.net and click on the gold triangle on the map that will start the test and it will tell ya when it is done, and get the download and upload speeds no downloading required

I would also suggest that you test from more than one of those servers, dont go to far away if you do the ping times will be high you the test will be off.

I am not sure just what 'clean up' cleans up, but if you are running IE7 you should click Tools, Internet Options, and under 'browsing history' click 'delete' and then click 'delete all' and make sure you checkmark 'also delete files and settings stored by add-ons'.

seems like a pretty decent download speed to me that is about 10 megabytes per second ....have you gone into internet explorer and under tools and internet options cleaned out all the saved websites and temp files you have on your harddrive? if not do it and post back results if you have a lots of stored websurfing data that could slow your pc down when surfing or downloading pictures embedded in email messages too... Clean Up should have accomplished the same objective. how bout have you run windows harddrive utilities lately to error check your disk/harddrive and defragment the harddrive?? if not, does those as well post back with results

There is so much going on in that toolbar, I cannot seem to locate "tools".
I did notoce it recommends I run a safety scan when I opened it.
I use Mozilla FIrefox as my browser as I have had problems with Internet Explorer.
It often says unable to connect.
I do however clear out the temp files etc from Mozilla as well as defrag....

what size is your harddrive capacity and how much free space is remaining?

what are all the programs loading at startup --to check this go to start , run, type in msconfig, then hit enter click on the startup tab and see if you can copy and past the items checked into a text file and upload or paste to the response thread.

I recently added an external hard drive for my photos, music and
I currently have 38.28 gb capacity/19.94 gb free space/52% freespace on drive C
THe external Ultra TD F: has 112 gb capacity/104 gb frree space/92%
I am guessing I should move more to the external hard drive?
I was unable to copy and paste programs loading at startup
